I’m sure there are things we can do better. Gotta watch the film, but it was a great team win. We have a group of guys that come in here each and every day, bring the hard hat and lunch pail and work our tails off. A lot of people don’t understand the kind of work that we put in. We’re here in this building a lot. We take pride in our preparation. It’s been showing these past three weeks. We have to continue to try to do that. - Julian Edelman


@Patriots: On to the pregame warmups. #LetsGo #PitvsNE


The Patriots didn’t play a great game overall. Sounds funny, I know, when a team puts up 42 points on the road against a good opponent. The defense may have played slightly better than the offense, but the night belonged to Gray. And that’s the sign of a good football team: when it doesn’t play its best, but still finds a way not only to win, but to win in a way that focuses on someone other than the expected stars. New England, with Denver’s loss at St. Louis Sunday, now effectively sits atop the AFC with a two-game advantage (adding in the tie-breaker of the Broncos). And it is starting to show something special as the shadows grow longer and the playoff picture – still very much a foggy shade of gray – begins to come more clearly into focus. {x}
