hayley: still too early to tell. we will have to keep a watch on that. it is possible. there are a couple of systems. jason: everybody is thinking about one word, gronk. the patriots play in primetime tonight against the texans in texas. the pats could get a boost from the return of rob gronkowski, who is expected to play tonight. new england will be without linebacker dont' a hightower. he did not make the trip to texas. the scenarios for the patriots were the same as last week, they could clinch the division with a win and a jets loss. there are also scenarios where they could simply clinch a playoff spot. keep your eyes out for londonderry' s ryan griffin, he' s a tight end for the texans. having a great year since he returned from injury. gametime tonight is 8:30. as for the jets, they had the titans at home. brandon marshall is left second quarter, uncovered on the far sideline, ryan fitzpatrick sees it, the result is a 69-yard touchdown. 27-0 jets.
6:18 pm
they improved to 8-5 so that means the pats will not clinch the division title tonight. the bills were in philly with chip kelly and the eagles. second quarter, tied 7-7. sam bradford passes to nelson agholor for the 53-yard touchdown. the eagles go on to win 23-20. they are now 6-7 and tied with washington for the nfc east division lead. steelers and bengals. andy dalton is picked off. injured his thumb. return. he came back to the sideline with a cast. it is a broken thumb. his replacement picked off, touchdown. the steelers win 23-20. that is huge for the patriots because it opens the door for the top spot in the afc.
6:19 pm
the bruins and celtics are both off today, the celtics will host cleveland on tuesday night, the bruins are home with edmonton on monday. the monarchs and thunder at the afternoon. no score in the seventh. good goaltending at both ends. a great chance at the other end, but turned away by drew fielding. the thunder get behind the defense. he had 32 saves. still scoreless. he gets off a great shot. but fielding up to the task. he made 30 saves. the board. that made it 1-0. adirondack wins 2-0 final. >> generally, we were tired.
