Patriots Beat: Pats iron out some kinks
By Mike Lowe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Practice.

Allen Iverson mocked it. "Practice? We're talking about practice?"

The New England Patriots welcomed it.

The Patriots' offense, though still not as high-powered as its most recent editions, was much more efficient Sunday afternoon in beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-3 at Gillette Stadium. Buoyed by a three-headed running attack (Stevan Ridley, Brandon Bolden and LeGarrette Blount), the Patriots were able to sustain...

Patriots Notebook: Defense has answers for Bucs' challenges
By Mike Lowe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Going for it on fourth down is the football equivalent of questioning someone's manhood

"It's a slap in the face when somebody goes for it on fourth down," said Tommy Kelly, the hulking defensive tackle for the New England Patriots. "Like, 'y'all can't stop us.'

"Any time you stuff them on that, it takes a little wind out of them."

If that's the case, the Patriots delivered a couple of knockout blows Sunday afternoon. Four times, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers attempted a fourth-down play in Patriots territory. Four times, they were turned back...

Patriots Beat: Update on the injured? Yeah, right
By Mike Lowe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots take a 3-0 record into Sunday night's game at Atlanta against the dangerous Falcons.

The Patriots' offense appeared to get untracked in last week's 23-3 win over Tampa Bay. The defense has yet to allow a point in the fourth quarter this season.

Yet the news from Gillette Stadium these days continues to revolve around a couple of injured players: tight end Rob Gronkowski and slot receiver Danny Amendola.

Patriots Beat: No surprise, Wilfork a huge loss for Patriots
By Mike Lowe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Who on the New England Patriots will replace Vince Wilfork?

No one. And everyone.
That's the way the Patriots are looking at it. That's the way they have to look at it.

Wilfork, 31, a five-time Pro Bowl selection and just one of the two players left from the Patriots' last Super Bowl championship team in 2004 (along with Tom Brady), suffered a torn Achilles tendon in his right foot in Sunday night's 30-23 victory over the Atlanta Falcons...

Enfield’s Matt Mulligan leans heavily on faith while trying to stick with Patriots
By Pete Warner

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Matt Mulligan is painfully aware that in the National Football League, everything can change at any moment. On Aug. 31, he was released by the Green Bay Packers, then signed with New England on Sept. 3 — only to be cut by the Patriots two days later. ...

Patriots Beat: Gronkowski ready? Maybe, but then, maybe not
By Mike Lowe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass - To play or not to play?

Again, that is the question facing tight end Rob Gronkowski and the New England Patriots. The two-time Pro Bowl selection has yet to play this season, and the Patriots' once-prolific offense has become mortal, averaging a mere 19 points per game...

Patriots Beat: Oh you fans of little faith, you really had to be there
By Mike Lowe
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Admit it. You thought the New England Patriots were done.

Thousands of people at Gillette Stadium did. After the fourth-down gambit failed, after Garrett Hartley gave the New Orleans Saints a 27-23 lead with his second field goal of the game with 2:24 remaining, the exodus began from the seats at Gillette...

Patriots Beat: Mayo won’t be easy to replace
Jerod Mayo’s injury will test the Patriots’ defensive depth.
By Mike Lowe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Next man up.

The New England Patriots have lived by that slogan for years. A player goes down with an injury, a player gets traded or leaves via free agency, someone else has to step in.

Coach Bill Belichick has been a genius at finding the replacement parts.

Patriots Beat: Patriots cheering on Red Sox
The Pats are getting ready for Miami and watching the World Series.
By Mike Lowe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Tom Brady was done. Final question answered.

But before he could exit left out of the interview room, someone shouted, “So what’s your prediction?’’

“Red Sox, man,’’ said Brady, without hesitation. “Red Sox in five. We’ll give them one.’’

Patriots Beat: Mankins ready at any position
The Pro Bowl guard might play at tackle this week.
By Mike Lowe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — In his nine seasons with the New England Patriots, Logan Mankins has earned a reputation as a guy you don’t mess with. At 6-foot-4, 308 pounds, he’s big. And sometimes he’s ornery. Mankins has been known to engage in a little after-play activity at times...
