Brady, Patriots prep for familiar foe in Revis

Tom Brady: I’ve Never Played Against Anyone As Good As Darrelle Revis

Marquice Cole, Matthew Slater Missing From Practice As Danny Amendola Participates Looking Hobbled

FOXBORO, Mass. — It’s a good thing Bill Belichick values special teams so much that nearly every player on the roster can participate on kickoffs and punts.

Matthew Slater, who reportedly has a broken wrist, and Marquice Cole were the only players not present at practice, who are presently on the 53-man roster...

The Patriots are currently 2-0 but the record is somewhat misleading. The offense led by former MVP Tom Brady, isn't as dominant as it once was.

With Brady's favorite targets Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski out...
