this is jim. a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation an irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem that doesn't require regular blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. gps: proceed to the designated route. not today. for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions jim can eat the healthy foods he likes.
don't stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once-a-day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring, no known dietary restrictions. for information and savings options, download the xarelto® patient center app call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.
good evening. now the plot thickens in the great football controversy. espn is reporting the 11 footballs the patriots used in the afc championship game were indeed under inflated. here is the prot cal. protocol. before the games the teams submit the footballs they want to use on offense and they are inspected and supposed to be inflated between 12.5 to 13.5 pounds per square inch. after inspection the balls are then returned to respective teams. and they are supposed to be unaltered. well somehow 11 patriots' footballs ended up under inflated. what did bill belichick know and when did he know it? that's the question. the patriots beat the colts 45-7. it is tough to make the argument the deflated
footballs were the key in this but it is embarrassing for the nfl heading into the super bowl. we will be talking about this a lot. nfl coaching news and brad seeley is moving across the bay. he is joining them as their special teams coach after spending the same capacity with the 49ers. he is a nfl lifer. his special teams units with the niners graded among the best in the league in field goalie efficiency. and he is taking over as defense coordinator for the bears. the architect of the defense was so good under jim harbaugh and many were hoping he would be promoted as the head coach of the red and gold but that game went to jim tom soula. the giants will try to replace power with speed and they hope the signing will help them there. the giants introduced that i new left fielder today. he gets a one-year deal. he was part of the kansas city royals team that lost to the giants in the world series.
he is 33 years old and a contact hitter and gave them some speed on the bases and he has a lot of respect after watching the giants play. tennis 2008 australian open champ and sharapova on the verge of defeat. she took a 4-1 lead in the third set and sharapova responded twice with big forehand winners. sharapova takes six of the last seven games. and on her second match point she hits wide. maria survives and advance tots third round 6-1 4-6 and 7-5. roger federer needed a doc. let me get a look at this. two seed federer having trouble with his pinky finger. he then made shots like this. look at the flick of the wrist. that's so easy. it is so simple. 3-6, 6-3 and 2-2. down under.
