The 2017 NFL season is upon us, and for the only time this season, every team has the same record. Regardless of how last season went, each team has a clean slate in front of them, and 16 games during the regular season to prove they've earned a spot in the playoffs. For some teams, a new season brings higher expectations than others. The New England Patriots, for one, have dreams of a third Super Bowl victory in four years.
The New England Patriots were supposed to feature the most dynamic group of weapons the team has ever had this season. They were supposed to be in line for a 16-0 season — at least according to some preseason predictions — and make another run at a Super Bowl. While another Super Bowl is not out of the question, Julian Edelman's season-ending injury Friday certainly put a damper on some of the hype surrounding the Patriots this season.
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft pledged to match up to $1 million in donations toward the American Red Cross’ Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Fund on Monday, joining Houston Texans owner Bob McNair in the relief effort in Houston. The Patriots are working with the Red Cross to create a special site to accept the donations. “Houston is a special city to our family and our organization,” Kraft said in a statement.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
