-- Jeopardy! took a shot at the Seahawks on Tuesday with a clue about the team’s Super Bowl XLIX loss to the Patriots. 

The clue read, “If this team had just handed it to Marshawn Lynch instead of calling a pass from the one in Super Bowl 49…”

And Jeopardy James, making his Tournament of Champions return, got the answer correct. 

-- ESPN released a list on Wednesday of the greatest “one-hit wonder” for each team in NFL history and Jonas Gray got the honor for the Patriots. 

On Nov. 16, 2014, Gray had one of the best single-game performances for a running back in team history when he rushed for 201 yards and scored a franchise-record four touchdowns in the Patriots’ 42-20 win over the Colts.

A few days later, Gray showed up late to the practice facility and never earned a starting position with the Patriots again.  

He was released from the team in September 2015. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I think I have always said 45 just because that’s a good goal to set because that is one that has been pretty hard to get to for most guys. I think you have to have goals — you have daily goals, you have yearly goals and you have long-term goals. I think for me it’s really just the love of football. I don’t know if or when I will ever not love it. That’s the thing.” -- Tom Brady, on when he will retire from the NFL
