Original reports about Tom Brady's knee injury were grim. Unfortunately for the New England Patriots, the news didn't improve. The star quarterback will miss the entire season with a left knee injury that needs surgery, the team said yesterday. That leaves the Patriots without one of the game's great signal-callers and severely damages their hopes of a return trip to the Super Bowl. Coach Bill Belichick would not say what the injury is, but the play, Brady's reaction and the prognosis all point toward a torn anterior-cruciate ligament.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The Tom Brady-Rob Gronkowski connection kept clicking. So did the New England Patriots' defense and special teams. Brady threw two touchdown passes to Gronkowski, Julian Edelman returned a punt 72 yards for another score and Kyle Arrington had two interceptions to help the Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 34-3, last night. The Patriots (7-3), who increased their AFC East lead to two games, play the Eagles at the Linc on Sunday afternoon. Kansas City (4-6)

THE EAGLES' defense is going to have to be dominant this week. I was a little disappointed at how that went at Carolina, thought the Panthers ran too easily and scored too many points against what we keep touting as a pretty formidable D. If Jason Peters can't go, or plays but is less than himself, it could be a really long night for the offense. In fact, as the week went on and it began to look less and less likely Peters would play, I really wavered on my early week decision to take the Eagles to win and to cover.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Whether he was catching the ball or drawing a slew of defenders, Dallas receiver Dez Bryant was a huge presence but it wasn't enough as the Eagles beat the Cowboys, 33-27, in overtime at AT&T Stadium. Bryant started quickly, making two catches for 57 yards in the Cowboys' opening 11-play, 93-yard drive that ended with Matt Cassel's 5-yard touchdown pass to Cole Beasley. Last week Bryant returned from a broken foot that sidelined him for five games, including the Cowboys' 20-10 win over the Eagles in Week 2. During last week's 13-12 loss to Seattle, he had two receptions for 12 yards.

New England quarterback Tom Brady, the reigning NFL MVP, limped off the field with a left knee injury yesterday in the first quarter of the Patriots' game against Kansas City. Multiple reports said last night the injury may be season-ending. Yahoo Sports quoted a source as saying Brady had suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament. "It's bad," the source said. "We're going to have to play without him. " NFL Network and ESPN both reported a similar pessimistic prognosis for Brady.

QB is PU Quick quiz: Who said this on Tuesday? "[Name here] is our starting quarterback. He gives our team the best chance to win. " Hint: If you're not happy he's squirming these days, you must be rooting for the Red Sox to win the American League Championship Series. That's right, it was Patriots coach Bill Belichick, and Mr. Personality is stuck with Matt Cassel as his QB. It's hard to know whom to feel worse for, Cassel or Belichick. Cassel is coming up small in his first real action since high school, and Belichick is struggling to find ways to play to Cassel's strengths.

Matt Cassel, who stepped in for an injured Tom Brady last year and led New England to an 11-5 record, was traded to Kansas City yesterday with linebacker Mike Vrabel for the Chiefs' second-round draft pick. Cassel emerged as a solid quarterback in his fourth season with the Patriots after Brady hurt his knee less than eight minutes into the opener against Kansas City and was done for the season. A career backup who hadn't started a game since high school, Cassel threw for 3,693 yards and 21 touchdowns in 15 starts.

The Dallas Cowboys will open their new $1.1 billion stadium in a nationally televised Sunday night game against the New York Giants on Sept. 20. The NFL released its complete 2009 regular-season schedule last night. The Cowboys lead all teams with six scheduled nationally televised games, even without Terrell Owens. Reigning Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh meets division rival Baltimore twice in 5 weeks late in the season, after they faced off in the AFC title game. They play Nov. 29 and Dec. 27. On Oct. 11, New England takes on Denver and former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, now the Broncos' coach.

After the Eagles prevailed in overtime to beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, evening their record at 4-4 in the process, Chip Kelly's assertion that the team is gradually revealing its true nature gained some credence on the surface. The Eagles have won four of six following an 0-2 start and there are glimmers, although often for just half a game, that brighten the prospect of the offense under quarterback Sam Bradford. In the preseason narrative, largely based on Bradford's faultless, if fleeting, exhibition performances, the Eagles would have a powerful, explosive offense to offset a defense that was terrible a year ago and seemed only incrementally better this time around.

When the Eagles have the ball: The Cowboys defense presents a big test. It limited the Eagles to a season-low 226 total yards in Week 2, including only 7 rushing yards. And the Dallas defense is better this week. Defensive end Greg Hardy is back from suspension and has three sacks in three games, and rookie defensive end Randy Gregory is back from injury. Linebacker Rolando McClain has also returned from suspension. The Cowboys surrendered only two offensive touchdowns in the last two games.

IRVING, Texas - He may not be 100 percent yet, but the expected presence of two-time Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant should give the Dallas Cowboys' sluggish offense a boost when they host the Eagles Sunday at AT&T Stadium. Bryant suffered a broken foot in the season-opening 27-26 win over the New York Giants. He caught five passes for 48 yards before suffering the injury in the fourth quarter. Even without Bryant, the Cowboys beat the Eagles the next week, 20-10. The Cowboys (2-5) lost Tony Romo with a fractured clavicle that game and haven't won since.

The Dallas Cowboys have not won since Tony Romo suffered a broken collarbone in a Week 2 win over the Eagles, and the Cowboys' star quarterback must remain on the sideline when the Eagles and Cowboys meet again on Sunday in Arlington, Texas. Romo can return to practice this week, but his injured reserve designation keeps him out of the lineup until Nov. 22. The Cowboys have started both Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel in Romo's place during a five-game losing streak. They will stick with Cassel when the Eagles visit Sunday.

MOBILE, Ala. - The Eagles have hired Bill Musgrave, who had a previous stint with the team, to be their quarterbacks coach, according to NFL sources. Musgrave, 46, was the offensive coordinator for the Vikings from 2011-13. When head coach Leslie Frazier was fired earlier this month after Minnesota's 5-10-1 season, all of his staff was let go, too. Musgrave replaces Bill Lazor, who left the Eagles to take the Dolphins' offensive coordinator position last week. Musgrave met with Eagles coach Chip Kelly this week during Senior Bowl practices.

THE EAGLES' week took an unexpected turn around 4:30 p.m. yesterday, when ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that Tony Romo's season was over because of a back injury. (Dallas coach Jason Garrett later said no final decision has been made, but he confirmed his quarterback had an MRI, apparently for a herniated disk.) "I don't believe that. Are you for sure?" Eagles running back LeSean McCoy said to co-host Anthony Gargano, when Gargano told the NFL's leading rusher the news, early in McCoy's 94WIP radio show.
