NH1 News Sports Update: Patriots win despite Edleman injury, Rousey no longer champion

CONCORD - The New England Patriots remain perfect after Sundays nail biting win 27-26.

But, it is a bittersweet victory after losing their best wide receiver to a foot injury. Julian Edelman ended up breaking his foot on one of the last plays in the first quarter.

The Patriots later found out Edelman needed surgery. He will be out for the next six to eight games. They expect him back for the playoffs.

On another note, Ronda Rousey’s perfect record is over. It ended in a blow. Her opponent, Holly Holm, in the second round of the UFC 193, kicked the UFC Women’s bantamweight champion in the head.

That kick knocked Ronda to the ground and then Holm pounced on her. The referee had to grab Holms and pull her away.

After the fight, Rousey was transported to a near by hospital. She tweeted the next day telling everyone she will be back in the ring and not to worry.

The Boston Red Sox President of baseball operations, Dave Dombrowski, made his first big splash this offsesason. He traded away four prospects for closer Craig Kimbrel.

He is a 27 year old flame throwing closer who has made four consecutive all-star games. Over his career he has averaged 37.5 saves per season and he has a 1.63 ERA over his career.

He is also signed through 2017 with a team option for 2018.

Some scouts feel that the Red Sox gave up too much for the closer. The most notable prospects were outfielder Manuel Margot and infielder Javier Guerra. Margot was ranked as the Red Sox number 3 prospect.
