FOXBORO, Mass. -- Pittsburgh's Mike Wallace is far from a complete wide receiver, but he might be the most dangerous deep threat in the NFL right now. Wallace does one thing great, and he's continued to get better at his trade over the last year. He's recognizing how to beat deep coverages by outsmarting them with more complex routes, and he takes advantage of defensive backs when they're off-balance or flat-footed. Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty said Wallace is "probably the fastest" wide receiver they'll play all season. To make up for that speed, the defense needs to be flawless with...

Patriots CB Devin McCourty talks about the “fastest receiver (we’ve seen)” … and links!

The Patriots are prepared to face Steelers WR Mike Wallace on Sunday.

In the Now: The Patriots Have a Chance to Go Far

Becoming a champion is a crap shoot even when you’re good. There’s an old saying, “I’d rather be lucky than good”, and the Patriots are good. Now, all they need is some luck. Take a look at any super bowl team and they will show you a series of events that helped them, nobody is that good. At 5-1 the New England Patriots are primed for another run at an AFC East title...
