my piece of advice is this. it is december. of course it, it is going to get cooler, 20 to 30 miles per hour, so we have wind chill to consider for friday, for saturday, slight risk of overnight flurry i'm looking at towns and cities far inland for that. no major rain or for that matter no major snow until we get into next week's forecast. 43? in boston and lawrence and norwood, worcester lagging behind at only 37 right now, we got the sunny skies, but feels -- has all morning long. it feels 10? cooler because of the wind. fox25 weather app right there you open it, got the temperatures, got feels like temperature, know exactly what you're dressing for in worcester today we got highs in the lower 40s. this is going to be 1 of the cooler spots. got clouds that bubble up during the afternoon and not bringing in any kind of wet weather so going to be a little bit of mix that we are dealing with here and afternoon of sun and scattered clouds. 50 in boston and ipswich, down
51 in portsmouth, new hampshire. clearly eastern mass, eastern new hampshire kind of the warmer spots as you travel inland, it is going to be a touch cooler, especially into the higher elevations. this evening i got breezy conditions that continue loon with temperatures 35 to 40?, overnight tonight our lows 30 to 35. so it is going to be near freezing when many of you wake up tomorrow morning and maintain the winds really from start to finish today and i want to pause things up at 11:00 tonight, i know many of you will be sleeping jus see that those snowflakes getting closer to southern new hampshire, perhaps the northern worcester hills, those are more likely areas to see couple of flurry out there and not create headache and tomorrow we have clouds lingering from this stalled system right here but it is not going to be close enough to bring rain or snow, just continuing wind into your saturday. sunday comes along like this. we will pause things at 2:00 p.m.
so we go from 45 on saturday in boston to 41 here on sunday. we got 40s all weekend in hyannis. we got 30s all weekend in the worcester area. so we got the pats taking on the rams here. sunday at 1:00 p.m. at gillette stadium and i got temperature in the upper 30s. looks cool and dry, mostly sunny, don't think we will have any kind of big winds and wind chill to worry about and 7-day forecast with the weekend always in view has us at 50 today, 45 tomorrow and 41 on into the weekend. 20s when you wake up on monday morning. got high 42 and couple flurries and sprinkles early in the morning and most of the information showing me the system overall looks like it is going to basically fall apart as it gets to us and look down the line to wednesday or thursday for next significant rain. back to you guys. >> local college raising wireness about the dangerous side of the season with dramatic video. moment the blowtorch touches the

our attention to the rams, big day for us today pulling together on the rams team we don't know very well and hopefully can take today and nail down situation and tie up loose ends we have had to do things during the week and ready to go on sunday. good test for us and a lot of good players, a lot of talent and very very do a good job. >> how fortunate to have bennett at the position to help fill the void.
players. >> talked about the contribution that does make. >> in locker room and on the field. >> we appreciate all of our players. you want to rank them. they are all important. all important. great player. they are >> are you happy with bennett? >> do what feels best if the football team. >> ability something to do to that and more important now. doing the best we can every
>> what goes into it? >> statement addressed this and wanted to give you opportunity to clarify there was a report yesterday there miaa been some concern about rob's back coming into add. >> he has a big personality and everybody seems to love him. >> determination to put him on there or not be made today after
>> there's more information coming and right now we have what we have, more comes. i don't know. >> initial report about this came out of buffalo. >> i have nothing to add in statement and that's all we have right here. >> how much more sit down with josh and personality and have options and how much more it
the other. categorize that and we will see. >> how much have you seen from him in return and ability to make people and talking the other day i wouldn't be out on field if i couldn't make and couple games and better progressively each week and based on watching him practice for a couple weeks before activated him and feel comfortable playing him and that's part of his game obviously quickness. just change direction, acceleration and all of those
evident when returned to practice after original -- to the initial break-in period. >> really rip off too many long runs this year but seems like every game hit 40-yard run. what about him makes him so dangerous when gets to that second levels? >> everything really. he has a lot of power and tackles and just -- can make people do it all. got power, got quickness, got vision. a lot of ways. >> even though hasn't done it this year. >> see him catching ball, making people miss, power. i mean look, not every -- good
to gets to him is 35 yards down field. that doesn't make it a great run. a lot of 5-yard runs where there's nothing there and gets 5 yards and some of the best runs you will see 5, 7-yard run. nobody blocked and think he is going to lose yard and line of scrimmage and almost gets the first out. so there's great runs that are 7-yard runs plays, not 50-yard run doesn't mean it is not a great run. >> breaking tackles, making guys miss, finding yards and doesn't really look like yards there not how many yards a guy gains. i don't think.
>> long. >> hard to throw over, close to receiver, hard for receiver to catch the ball. defensive backs and comes up with it and defensive back doesn't have enough to make the play, long arm, behind a lot of receivers and able to reach across and against arizona and get the ball over his head and good actually has big quickness to even handle some of the receivers that you would think smaller than him and a lot quicker than him and does good job against him and hands on him and they are in trouble. got a lot of talent. good ball skills. you know, gets hands on ball and
>> move them around and don't move him around and over there which i would say is more the situation than not. some teams, some situations where you got him lower percentage of the plays by far generally you see a coroner play and some games are different. we will match to this guy and somebody else match to that guy. teams will do that. there's some of that but by in large, most teams play 1 position and whoever is in that spot that's whoever they cover. >> strictly to match-up or
>> easiest thing in the world match the other and cover this guy, great. what do the other 10 guys do? that's the problem. easy to match up 1 guy and that's simple. and what are other 10 guys do. what if there, go in motion, backfield, what if it is this personnel in the game, what if that personnel and all the rest of the match-up, that's where it gets spending all day literally on that. take this guy. if it is in the same spot a lot easier in term of scheme to match up and make adjustments and so forth. so again, a lot of different ways to match up and match up and put best guy on best guy and
your second best guy on best guy and double them. you know, put best guy on best guy and double them anyway, lessen match-up down the line. setting tennis ladder or whatever. and push bad guy 1 and 2 through 7 and great, put best guy of 1 and beat by their 1 and 2 against 2. so it is -- that's what earning. you know, 3 or 4 man ladder with the receive and we don't have to match them that way. match them however you want. >> same thing. how do you want to match up. 1 against 1. >> defensive line quick similar and how do you get your guys
early in the game. >> hard to duplicate and love to have 2 or 3 and be aaron donald and not have many of those guys. and would do that, they have some bigger more powerful guys too like cam, like brock hurts, guys like that. so they have some different type of player on the very fast off the edge. so that's another different type of player good like donald but different. much different than donald so you try something like that. >> runs well. he has got very good speed. cover sideline to sideline. good range in passing game. so he is kind of like the
athletic coverage type of linebacker also plays so they have a lot of coverage players out there without having to actually substitute into a group. play nickels and nichols with barren and joiner as 2 inside guys and most don't have that. >> make a leap early this week and malcolm brown and took another step and see anything with what you have been able to
very good and what are it was, 3 or 4 weeks in there and rebuilding process and getting back and timing, confidence, meantime the offense accelerated quite a bit where we were in spring and where we were in the first call it 2 weeks of training camp and fourth season game so and timing, confidence, strength, so forth and then it has been good direction i would say somewhere like around third, fourth week of the season, somewhere in there. he came back earlier than that and again, kind of catch-up period that took place to a degree.
emergency situation and we have contingency plan in place and never presented itself? >> that would be going to the category of inaudible. >> how do you dress that audible? something you want before the season starts? >> like a lot of things as-needed talk about those everyday. still waiting to see them. all right? >> guys spent time for draft and
>> didn't meet with him personally. saw a lot of them 2 years ago when i started on them watching harper and others here as they came up. they have had bunch of receivers and back last 2 years in the draft, probably 5 or 6 dies, whatever it is, so i remember when chris came here talking to this guy and talking about early and whatever and watching him play it would have been 2014, right? yeah. the fourteenth season. then i watched him more in 15 because i had seen him in 14,
there, plus couple coaches out there,cal, kind of followed and apparent this guy nfl quarterback and know what round it is going to be and going back to the freshman sophomore year and haven't had personal action with >> played the slot and a little bit more. >> i think logan really helped us playing in there, we kind of were in a little bit of transition early are in the year with secondary and logan in particular outside inside, i think it was last couple weeks, and good level of communication,
and plays off the edge and again, overall communication consistency in there has been, you know, good, try to build on that, so i think that's -- you know, that's been a positive force here over the last couple weeks. i'm not saying it could go back back to different situation but kind of been and saw this coming over the by and next few games and next part of the schedule and where we are where we wanted to be here through the period and playing not only slot position but again the communication, the decision making, adjustments and come from that inside spot that have to relate to linebacker,
safety and a lot of moving parts in there that good experience player at that position stat sheet and overall operation and communication and smoothness of the defensive play and it is definitely there and he has done a good job of that. however that goes with those guys inside, they are pretty experienced guys that have played together and all the way back to college and confidence and trust and communication and high in there that that's -- i think that's really and something that's become more of a strength force defensively. again, not that it shows up in stat sheet and overall defensive
the last couple weeks. he has done a good job of it. >> daniel: briefly talked about rob gronkowski back surgery calling it unfortunate situation. >> julie: when asked about losing a guy he c'mon in, pop pop! happy birthday! i survived a heart attack. i'm doing all i can to keep from having another one.
hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin. no more than one hundred milligrams as it affects how well it works. brilinta helps keep my platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. brilinta reduced the chance of another heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. >>don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. >>talk to your doctor about brilinta. i'm doing all i can. that includes brilinta. if you can't afford your medication,
