FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Under Armour Shoes Australia . -- Tom Brady wont return to an undefeated team after all.But following the Buffalo Bills surprise 16-0 shutout victory at New England Sunday, he will come back to an AFC East that is suddenly tighter a month into the season.Buffalos win was a continuation of an offensive turnaround that seemed improbable after a 0-2 start.The change in direction began with the firing of offensive coordinator Greg Roman and promotion of assistant Anthony Lynn. It is now in full bloom after back-to-back wins over Arizona and New England.For sure, were confident in coach Lynn, running back LeSean McCoy said. Each game, each time he has a shot he has to call a play, different situations, hes answering every time. ... We loved him already before he was an offensive coordinator, and now were just falling in love with the calls that hes making.And for a team that seemed to be going nowhere two weeks ago, getting just its second win in 16 visits to Foxborough is a very big deal.A big part of the reason is quarterback Tyrod Taylor. In his second year as a starter, he has found confidence with his throwing.He had trouble reading coverages and throwing the deep ball earlier in the season, but didnt exhibit those issues in picking apart a veteran New England defense that is having trouble defending the pass this season.Buffalos defense also took a big step by handing the Patriots their first shutout loss at Gillette Stadium.Even with Brady serving the final game of his four-game Deflategate ban, cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman said its something to build on.So was the camaraderie his teammates showed about an hour before the game, when Bills safety Robert Blanton and others were involved in a shoving match with Patriots quarterback Jacoby Brissett and receiver Malcolm Mitchell.Robey-Coleman said he and other Buffalo players felt disrespected when the Patriots players twice ran through their pregame warmups.Several punches were thrown when a shoving match erupted near the sideline. The altercation appeared to begin when Brissett was jogging along the field and was shoved by Bills safety Robert Blanton.Brissett didnt stop, and Mitchell retaliated by shoving Blanton. Blanton responded by punching Mitchell in the chest and head-butting him, which led to several other players and assistant coaches getting involved before it was broken up.When he did that, it kind of put a fire up underneath us, Robey-Coleman said. We came out there with some fire. And it was like, `Nah, we aint going to let nobody disrespect us no matter where were at.WELCOME BACK BRADY: As bad as things went for the Patriots on Sunday, Bradys return to the team on Monday is welcomed for several reasons. Not only do they get back the leader of their offense, but they get back a healthy player at the position with Jimmy Garoppolo still recovering from his shoulder injury and Brissett not 100 percent after tweaking his right thumb last week. Receiver Julian Edelman said his presence will help everyone refocus.Any time one of your best players isnt there, theres something missing, Edelman said. We handled a lot of it well. Today we just didnt. The Bills outplayed us, so thats that.A LITTLE MORE GRONK: After going without a catch in his season debut last week, Rob Gronkowski got his first reception of 2016 with an 11-yard reception in the fourth quarter. With it, he took over sole possession of 20th place among NFL tight ends. Gronkowski (5,566) needs 161 yards to move past Irving Fryar (5,726) into fourth place on the Patriots career receiving list.BOUNCING BACK: Following a 0-2 start, Ryan looked forward to Buffalos next two opponents.He said Arizona and New England would be a great test to see how his team responds. The Bills passed with flying colors in winning both games, starting with a 33-18 win over the Cardinals.Yeah, not one of the more brilliant statements Ive had, Ryan said with a self-deprecating laugh. Well, I feel a lot better.SACK ATTACK: The Bills had three sacks against the Patriots.Buffalo has 13 sacks in four games after managing just 21 last season -- a franchise low for a 16-game schedule. Last season, the Bills failed to record more than two sacks in one game. This season, the Bills have had three or more three times.More encouraging is the Bills defense prepares to welcome back star defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, who missed the first four games serving a suspension for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy.---AP NFL websites: and Kyle Hightower on Twitter at Authentic Under Armour Australia .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -After an hour and ten minute weather delay, the Alabama soccer team defeated Sam Houston State in a 5-0 decision to open the 2016 season on Friday night at the Alabama Soccer Complex. The Crimson Tide featured four different goal scorers in the game, and it out shot the Bearkats by a 36-3 margin.Alabama improves to an overall 1-0 record, while Sam Houston falls to 0-1 overall.I am very pleased with our performance tonight, said head coach Wes Hart. Every player on the team contributed to the win. I am happy to see Emma Welch was dangerous all night long and scored for the second time in three games. Lacey Clarida continued her goal scoring streak dating back to last spring, and she has scored in her last eight games. Tori Gann was excellent. We used Tori a lot last year as a reserve to come into games and bring energy. Tonight she was called upon to start due to an injury and she did not disappoint. We will enjoy this victory for the next few hours, and then our focus will shift to Sunday and Murray State. Sophomore Tori Gann led the Tide offensively, as she registered two goals on the day. Both of Ganns goals came in the first half. The other three goal scorers included senior Auburn Mercer, sophomore Emma Welch and junior Lacey Clarida.Both teams battled early on until Gann capitalized off a cross that came from Welch at about 12 yards out in the 17th minute to give Alabama an early 1-0 lead. Discount Under Armour Australia. Five minutes later, at the 22:50 mark, Gann scored again except this time it came unassisted as she weaved through defenders to drill a shot five yards outside the box to give the Tide a 2-0 lead. The scoring affair continued in the first half, as Mercer converted from 10 yards out off a pass from freshman Louge Shamburger in the 36th minute to extend the Tide lead to 3-0 going into halftime.Junior Kat Stratton registered her only save of the match in the first half. Going into halftime Alabama led 17-2 in shots and 5-0 in corner kicks.Nine minutes into the second half, 54:30 minute mark, Welch drilled a shot in the right side of the net from a pass that came from sophomore Abbie Boswell giving Alabama a 4-0 lead. Clarida scored the Tides final goal of the game in the 68th minute on a through ball that came from senior Jordan Meier to lengthen the lead to 5-0.Alabama played solid defense in the second half allowing only one Sam Houston shot compared to the Tides 19. The Tide compiled seven corner kicks in the half, and it held the Bearkats to zero.The Crimson Tide will be back in action on Sunday, Aug. 21, when it takes on the Murray State Racers at the Alabama Soccer Complex at 6 p.m. CT.
