New England Patriots

Over/under win total: 9.0

This would be Bill Belichick’s finest work if he could get New England into the playoffs with a quarterback room led by unknown Jarrett Stidham and journeyman Brian Hoyer. The question is though: can this Tom Brady-less crew top nine victories?

PARIS — Driving around Formula One tracks without fans cheering at Silverstone and Monza would literally feel “very empty” for world champion Lewis Hamilton.

The first 10 races this season have been postponed or cancelled amid the coronavirus pandemic, with the iconic Monaco Grand Prix scrapped for the first time in 66 years.

F1 remains hopeful that the season can start in early July with a doubleheader at the Austrian Grand Prix, and that 15 to 18 of the 22 scheduled races can yet be completed.

But all of them would be held without any spectators until it is safe.

NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Saints have cut three-time Pro Bowl right guard Larry Warford, whose three-year run as a starter was cast into doubt by the club’s selection of interior lineman Cesar Ruiz in the first round of the NFL draft.

Warford, whose termination was announced Friday by general manager Mickey Loomis, started all 44 games in which he played for New Orleans since signing a four-year, $34 million contract in 2017.

The 6-foot-3, 317-pound Warford also was named to the Pro Bowl for a third straight season in 2019, when he started 15 games.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver told players on a call Friday that a decision on the resumption of the 2019-20 season can extend into June and that if the league does return to play it is not expected that fans will be able to attend games, according to The Athletic‘s Shams Charania.

Charania also reported that Silver said it is safer to hold games in a few locations — such as Disney World Orlando and Las Vegas — rather than flying from city to city if the NBA comes back from its hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
