Brady, who wore a "Pliability" T-shirt to his first press conference of the 2018 regular season, wanted to steer the conversation to football.

Houston has not beaten the Patriots since the regular-season finale in 2009 (0-7 since) and has never won at Gillette Stadium. "They want to talk about a lot of drama", Brady said. "A lot of people are watching".

The Boston Globe offers an interesting look back at the team through an oral history, and Belichick called it the most important year of his development. I feel like I can go out there, I can anticipate a lot of things.

The four-time Pro Bowler was Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, 2014 and 2015 and never missed a game until 2016, when he started struggling with a back injury that ended his season.

The New England Patriots start their journey for another Super Bowl banner on Sunday when they play the Houston Texans. "I would love to play 41, 42, 43, 44, 45", said Brady, counting the years out on his hand. "I'm not ready to say that I'm done, because I don't feel like I am".

Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel said he's hopeful that Watt won't be limited on Sunday against the Patriots, but it's hard to know before he plays in a real game. You know, I'm just focused on what I want to do and be a great football player for this team, try to be a good example in the locker room and provide great leadership. "I just love being a part of it".

Nixon that compelled the president to turn over the Watergate tapes - a ruling that Kavanaugh had previously questioned. Judge Brett Kavanaugh's remarks were not the words of a man interviewing for a spot on the highest court of the land.

"And I think people [journalists and commentators] are just looking for something to write and talk about".

The highly anticipated return of Deshaun Watson is finally here, and after his electric 8 game stretch last season, expectations are sky high for the former Clemson Quarterback. Instead, he says he remembers that he and the offense "had the opportunity to put the game away and we didn't".

"I don't want to bring on any drama this year", Brady said on Friday instead saying that his focus was on being a good leader.

"All I do is focus on controlling what I can control and what I can control is today, my meetings, my practice today, trying to be the best I can be today. But, I'm going with the Packers to win over the Bears at home". Tom Brady is in tip-top shape at age 41 and coming off the best Super Bowl performance of his career, but his supporting cast for Opening Day leaves a lot to be desired.

DE J.J. Watt has 76 career sacks, second most in NFL since entering league in 2011.

This will be Watson's second trip to New England after he and the Texans came up just short in a 36-33 loss there previous year. Watson is back and healthy now, and that's the biggest reason Houston is worth watching in 2018, when the team figures to have as good a shot as anyone in the AFC South to get into the playoffs. But, yeah, when I think of Tom, I think of situations like that.
