Pratt was yards ahead of Jones in this case, and even if it was a fumble, he had no chance to tackle him. Meanwhile, Apple was just tailing the play and Jones appeared to pick him out and drop to the turf right below his feet.
New England has now lost two straight games, moving them to 7-8 on the season, though they remain in the playoff hunt. The Buffalo Bills already clinched the AFC East title, so the wild card is all the Patriots can hope for now.
Walter, 49, had pleaded guilty last October to a federal criminal charge of distribution of fentanyl, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in federal prison. At the time, he had reached a deal with federal prosecutors to serve exactly 17 years.
But Judge Otis D. Wright II rejected that sentence on Monday, as Rolling Stone reports, because it was below federal guidelines and prosecutors have argued that Walter continued to sell counterfeit pills up until his 2019 arrest.
\"I may as well lay it out, OK,\" Wright reportedly said in the courtroom. \"When you continue to engage in this activity even after your activities killed someone, I'm having a tough time not staying within the guidelines.\"
Rolling Stone reports that Walter agreed to the higher sentence after conferring with his lawyer for a few minutes. While addressing the court at one point, Walter apologized to Miller's family but said it was only after his arrest that he learned the rapper had died from something he had supplied.
\"My actions caused a lot of pain, and for that I'm truly remorseful,\" Walter said, according to the magazine. \"I'm not that type of person who wants to hurt anybody. That's not me. But on the paperwork where it says that I continued to conduct in that kind of behavior after I knew that there was death, that's not the truth, your honor.\"
Federal prosecutors have accused Walter of supplying the counterfeit oxycodone pills to Reavis, who allegedly gave them to Pettit. Walter said in court that he had directed Reavis to deliver the pills to Pettit, because he believed Pettit wanted them for himself and was unaware he had plans to sell them to someone else.
The chart-topping rapper and producer, who was born Malcolm James McCormick, had died at age 26 from what the Los Angeles County coroner said was an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol.
In a victim impact statement read by prosecutors at the sentencing, Miller's mother, Karen Meyers, said he would have never knowingly taken a pill with fentanyl, adding that \"he wanted to live and was excited about the future.\"
\"This was a human being who unwittingly took something that will flat-out kill you, and I have no idea why we have people out here dealing in this stuff, peddling this stuff,\" Wright said. \"This is what upsets me. Everybody now knows this stuff will kill you. I need to be quiet because I'm talking myself into something stratospheric.\"

In 2013, he founded the record label imprint REMember Music. After his second studio album, Watching Movies with the Sound Off (2013), he left Rostrum and signed with the major label Warner Bros. Records in 2014. With them, he released four studio albums: GO:OD AM (2015), The Divine Feminine (2016), Swimming (2018), and the posthumous Circles (2020). For Swimming, he was posthumously nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. He also served as a record producer for various artists, including himself, under the pseudonym Larry Fisherman.
Miller struggled with addiction and substance abuse, which was often referenced in his lyrics. On September 7, 2018, Miller died from an accidental drug overdose of cocaine, fentanyl, and alcohol at his home, at the age of 26.
Malcolm James McCormick was born on January 19, 1992, in the Point Breeze neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was a son of Karen Meyers, a photographer, and Mark McCormick, an architect, and had an older brother, Miller. His mother is Jewish, and his father is Christian. While he and his brother were raised Jewish, he attended a Catholic grade school to \"ensure a good education and a chance to play football and lacrosse.\" He later went to Winchester Thurston School, and graduated from Taylor Allderdice High School.
A self-taught musician, Miller played piano, guitar, drums, and bass by the age of six. He first started rapping at the age of 14. Before that, he wanted to be a singer. In high school, he decided to focus on his rap career, later noting, \"Once I hit 15, I got real serious about it and it changed my life completely ... I used to be into sports, play all the sports, go to all the high school parties. But once I found out hip-hop is almost like a job, that's all I did.\" He originally went by the name Easy Mac (often stylized as EZ Mac) and released the mixtape But My Mackin' Ain't Easy in 2007 at the age of 15. By 2009, he established himself as Mac Miller, and released two mixtapes: The Jukebox: Prelude to Class Clown and The High Life. At the 2010 Pittsburgh Hip Hop Awards, Miller won 21 & Under of the Year, and Best Hip Hop Video for \"Live Free\".
Miller signed with the independent label Rostrum Records in July 2010, in the lead-up to his mixtape K.I.D.S. Rostrum president Benjy Grinberg met Miller while recording with Wiz Khalifa at ID Labs. Although Grinberg started giving Miller advice, he did not show interest in getting involved with his career until Miller began work on K.I.D.S., when he \"noticed a maturation in his sound and approach to his music\". By that point, Miller had started attracting interest from other record companies, but chose Rostrum due to its location in his hometown and association with Wiz Khalifa. K.I.D.S. was released by Rostrum in August 2010. During this time, Miller broke through with a focus on social media engagement, digital sales, and persistent touring, due to a lack of radio airplay or mainstream features.
XXL featured Miller in its annual \"Freshman Class\" list of 2011, alongside 10 other rappers including Kendrick Lamar and Meek Mill. Miller released his fifth mixtape, Best Day Ever, in March 2011. Its single \"Donald Trump\" became his first song to chart on the US Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 75, and received a platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Also in March 2011, he released a six-track EP, On and On and Beyond. Intended to target a new audience, four of its tracks were previously included on his mixtapes. The EP was his first entry into the US Billboard 200 albums chart at number 55.
Miller's debut studio album, Blue Slide Park, released on November 8, 2011. With 144,000 first week sales, it debuted atop the Billboard 200, the first independently distributed debut album to do so since Tha Dogg Pound's Dogg Food in 1995. Three songs from the album, \"Smile Back\", \"Frick Park Market\", and \"Party on Fifth Ave.\" charted on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 55, 60, and 64, respectively. Blue Slide Park was certified gold in the United States and Canada. Despite its impressive commercial performance, Blue Slide Park received a generally mixed critical response.
On March 23, 2012, Miller released his seventh mixtape, Macadelic. The single \"Loud\" peaked at number 53 on the Billboard Hot 100. In mid-2012, Miller premiered two songs produced by Pharrell Williams, from a planned collaboration EP, Pink Slime. At least ten tracks were completed by August 2012 according to Miller, but the project was not released despite a multi-year effort. Miller released an EP, You, under the alias Larry Lovestein & The Velvet Revival on November 21, 2012. Rather than rap, the EP features Miller crooning over lounging jazz instrumentals.
In early 2013, Miller founded the record label imprint REMember Music, named after a deceased friend. The label primarily focused on Pittsburgh artists, as well as releases for Miller's alter-egos. Miller starred in a six-episode reality series, Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family, on MTV2. It followed the production of his upcoming second studio album, and premiered on February 26, 2013. On March 4, 2013, Miller released a mixtape, Run-On Sentences Vol. 1, solely featuring instrumentals made by himself, under his production alias Larry Fisherman. Later that month, Miller featured on singer Ariana Grande's lead single \"The Way\" for her debut album, Yours Truly; the song is Miller's highest peak on the Billboard Hot 100 at number nine, and was certified triple platinum by the RIAA.
His second studio album, Watching Movies with the Sound Off, was released on June 18, 2013. It received generally positive reviews, with most critics praising his new psychedelic sound. The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200, selling 102,000 copies in its first week. The album spawned three singles; \"S.D.S.\", \"Watching Movies\" and \"Goosebumpz\". The album featured guest appearances from Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler, the Creator, Action Bronson and Jay Electronica. According to Miller, the album is \"very introspective and very personal so it's kind of throwing it all out there and seeing what happens.\" 153554b96e
