- Meanwhile, the Amtrak tragedy in Philadelphia raises questions across the region about who’s responsible and who’s going to pay for track improvements and maintenance.
- And finally, the Patriots and Tom Brady are fighting back after the NFL slapped the team and its longtime QB with some harsh punishment for improperly deflated playoff footballs.
