Asked if Rams DT Aaron Donald compares to Lawrence Taylor, Bill Belichick (Taylor's former defensive coordinator) says, "Aaron Donald's a great player, but I wouldn't put anyone ahead of Lawrence Taylor. Lawrence did it for 13 years and he dominated, similar to the way Donald does. But I wouldn't put anyone ahead of Taylor. I just wouldn't."

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski asked if he's bummed not to be able to go to Shaq's Super Bowl party on Friday night. Gronk joked about plans to go to the party, if invited.
