Andre Carter may have gotten a relatively late start on playing football as a kid, but he's been able to turn in a long NFL career that's spanned more than a decade. Now, in his latest stop as a Patriot, the defensive end is starting to produce in a big way. In the last two Patriots' games, Carter has turned in a total of four sacks and a handful of tackles. Carter says that he's starting to feel more comfortable on the Bruins' defensive line, and because of that, the numbers are starting to show. See the video above to...

Danny Woodhead Comfortable With Limited Role in Kevin Faulk's Return to Patriots

FOXBORO, Mass. -- Running back Danny Woodhead is coming off the first game of his New England career without an offensive touch, but he's got no issues with his role on the team. Maybe not by coincidence, it was also the first time he was on the field at the same time as teammate Kevin Faulk, who returned Sunday after a 13-month absence with a knee injury. Faulk led the Patriots...

Video of the day: Patriots WR Taylor Price just wants to be on the field

The week started with Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien saying he’d like to see more of WR Taylor Price on the field Sunday. Somehow, someway. Of course, Price was thrilled to hear that. He wants to be on the field, too, provided he earns the trust of QB Tom Brady. Check out my video:

Wes Welker (credits below) With tremendous thanks to Brett Talley (@therealTAL) for filling in for me the past few weeks, herewith is Week Nine’s Sit/Start: QB Start: Matt Cassel, Kansas City The Dolphins are not bad – they’ve been tied or ahead in almost every game this year – but they do tend to give up a lot of air yards (including 345 to Eli Manning last week).

Eli Manning showing everyone he's in Brady's class

Eli Manning created some waves this summer putting himself in the same class with Tom Brady in a radio interview. It was instant tabloid material. How could Manning be in the same elite class with Brady? Eli had only won one Super Bowl compared to Brady's three, and the New York Giants were entering this season after missing the playoffs a very un-Brady-like two straight years...

Giants S Rolle isn't fazed by Patriots WR Welker

New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle doesn't seem too worried about New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker. Although Welker has an NFL-leading 57 receptions for 824 yards this season, Rolle doesn't have an answer why the diminutive wideout is giving other NFL defensive backs fits this season. "I don't know. You've got to ask those guys he's giving...
