A few random thoughts while I wonder how grumpy people will be at the local Dunkins this morning...
- CYBER MONDAY IS BACK AT BSJ! 40 percent off annual memberships until midnight.
- The Patriots were pretty bad at Houston last night.
- A lot of people will bury them — it wasn't good, and isn't good — but they were sick and they usually have a road stinker around this time of the year. Maybe Houston is the new Miami.
- Mohamed Sanu is not near full strength.
- A win against the Chiefs at home will change everything.
- Yeah, I underestimated the Texans. Didn't think Bill O'Brien and Romeo Crennel had this in them.
- The Texans did play much more man coverage. They didn't show that before. Was that because they got a couple of corners back who could do it, or did they have confidence the Patriots couldn't beat them down the field? Probably a combination of both. Wonder what the ratio was.
- They have to figure out the offense. Lot of work to do.
- Jayson Tatum making strides
- Celtics rally past Knicks
- Who's better than David Pastrnak right now? Remarkable. Smart column here.
- Bruins beat Montreal again.
- Enjoyed this look at the Red Sox highs and lows in the past decade.

Is this what the Colts were trying to do against the Patriots a few years back? This was better.
The Dolphins just executed the most beautiful trick play you will see today.
