PATRIOTS: ESPN’s Chris Mortensen said of the criticism the Patriots have received for running up the score on teams, “When you talk to a few owners around the league, they’ve sensed that Patriots Owner Robert Kraft has been uncomfortable, or … hurt a little bit by the damage to his franchise’s reputation over ‘Spygate.’ If you watched Kraft and his son Jonathan (on Sunday) near the end of the game (against the Redskins), they didn’t appear comfortable with what was going on down on the field. ... Bob Kraft’s reputation does mean something to him” (“Monday Night Countdown,” ESPN, 10/29).
BILLS: The Bills have sold 48,236 season tickets, up more than 5,000 from last year and the highest total since ’94. However, three of the 164 private suites remain unsold and seats “could be had in the stadium’s three indoor clubs and four outdoor clubs.” Suites at Ralph Wilson Stadium cost $40,000-95,000 annually (BUSINESS FIRST OF BUFFALO, 10/26 issue).
