Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel is getting ready for another first in his season of firsts. The forecast for Thursday night's game against the Jets calls for rain.
Cassel said Wednesday his team would be fine in those conditions because it practices in cold and wet weather in New England.
He made his first start in the NFL in the first meeting this season between the teams, a 19-10 win by the Patriots. Now the Jets and Patriots are tied for the AFC East lead at 6-3.
New York quarterback Brett Favre has much more experience in inclement weather after playing the last 16 seasons with the Green Bay Packers. Cassel said that while growing up, he considered Favre one of his favorite quarterbacks.
Bengals
A Fresno (Calif.) County judge sentenced Bengals defensive lineman Jason Shirley to 30 days in a work program after a jury found him guilty of drunken driving and hit and run.
e handed down Monday, said his lawyer, Laura Magill. Shirley could face a suspension by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for violating the league's player conduct policy.
Police say the former Fresno State football player had a blood-alcohol level of 0.12, above the legal limit of 0.08, on Oct. 8, 2007, when he crashed into a Fresno apartment and fled the scene.
His first case in connection with the incident ended in a mistrial.
