LAS VEGAS -- Tom Brady is back from his four-game suspension, and the New England Patriots are now atop the NFL Vegas Rankings.However, its not by as wide of a margin as our panel of ESPN Chalk handicappers was thinking a week ago. New England started the season 3-0 with Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett filling in at quarterback, and for the last few weeks weve been writing about that the Patriots would be upgraded when Brady returned and probably be No. 1. However, the Patriots were shut out 16-0 by the Buffalo Bills in Week 4. That would normally lead to a team being downgraded by a couple of points, so the addition of Brady only netted the Patriots a 1.5-point increase over last week, but that still enough to take over the top spot at a power rating of 27.Heres a look at all 32 teams, the squads making the biggest moves up and down the rankings and some Week 5 value plays (10-3 ATS so far this season) using this weeks power ratings:Note: The NFL Vegas Rankings are compiled by taking the average of the power ratings of ESPN Chalk handicappers, including Erin Rynning, yours truly and ESPNs Football Power Index, and are used to compare two teams as if they were to meet on a neutral field (after which most teams get 2.5 points for home-field advantage) and can be used to compare to the current point spread.

LONDON -- Formula One is being bought by Liberty Media, a U.S. company that invests in entertainment and sports, for $4.4 billion.Liberty Media Corp., which is controlled by 75-year-old tycoon John Malone, has ended years of uncertainty about the ownership of the auto racing series with Wednesdays deal.There will be continuity, with Bernie Ecclestone remaining the chief executive officer of F1. But the 85-year-old Ecclestone will have to work under a new chairman: Chase Carey, the executive vice chairman of Rupert Murdochs entertainment conglomerate 21st Century Fox.Formula One has hundreds of millions of fans, and Carey said in a statement that he sees opportunity to develop it. In an interview, Ecclestone said he is optimistic Liberty has the resources, expertise and outlook to drive the growth of F1 -- particularly in the United States.Liberty said it has initially purchased a minority stake of 18.7 percent for $746 million. A buyout is expected to be completed by March 2017. F1s biggest current shareholder, investment fund CVC Capital Partners, and the other sellers will still own 65 percent of Formula One Group stock, and retain board representation. But CVC, which first invested in F1 in 2005, is ceding control of the sport to Malones Liberty, which has all the voting shares.The company says the deal values Formula One at $8 billion, including debt.Malone, a U.S. cable-industry pioneer, has wide-ranging holdings in sports and entertainment. His Liberty Media also owns Major League Baseball team Atlanta Braves and has a controlling interest iin radio company Sirius XM.ddddddddddddMalone also controls European telecom company Liberty Global and has investments in U.S. cable company Charter, which recently bought Time Warner Cable, and various cable-TV companies.I hope they do a lot because they are American and have had dealings in television in America for a long time, Ecclestone said of Liberty. They have dealings with a lot of sponsors because of their TV networks and social media which we havent done (as much) in the past.The sport returned to the U.S. in 2012 after a five-year absence, with Austin hosting the race under the current deals.I am very, very happy that they can come in and do things (for the sport), Ecclestone, the long-time F1 commercial chief, told The Associated Press. I have been trying to do things in America for years but not very successfully ... maybe they are the people that can get it done.Asked about challenging NASCARs supremacy in the U.S., Ecclestone said: They are the people that should be concerned, of course.At the time of the sale, CVC had a 35.5 percent stake in F1, followed by U.S. fund manager Waddell & Reed with slightly more than 20 percent. Ecclestone has 5.3 percent stake in F1 but his family Bambino Trust has a further 8.5 percent, rounding up his involvement up to about 14 percent.---Tali Arbel contributed from New York.---Rob Harris can be followed at www.twitter.com/RobHarris and www.facebook.com/RobHarrisReports Wholesale Jerseys  Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
