By Brian MacPhersonFOXBORO -- Rather than leaving town on Saturday, as they normally would, the Patriots packed up and headed for the airport shortly after the end of practice in Friday afternoon. The extra day will give the Patriots a day to get adjusted both to the new time zone and to the altitude in Denver. They've lost each of the last three games they've played at Invesco Field dating back to 2005, including a 20-17 overtime defeat in 2009. Rather than traveling on Saturday, the Patriots will have a chance to treat Saturday like a home game -- including a walk-through. "I don't know if it's a huge deal, but it's still a long flight, and getting there early and making sure we put ourselves in position, if there's any acclimating we do, to do it, and get ready for the game," Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker said.

Patriots Mailbag: Aaron Hernandez, Rob Gronkowski Make Up for Lack of Reliable Third Wide Receiver

As such, it's time to talk Tim Tebow, the Patriots' defense, wide receivers, Rob Gronkowski and plenty of other stuff in another edition of the Patriots mailbag. Jeff, I...

Photochop Winners: Tom Brady Is Upset With Rex Ryan, Kanye West, Sold-Out Ugg Store

Tom Brady is a pretty unflappable guy. After four Super Bowl appearances (three rings) and countless game-winning drives, Brady is used to pressure and doesn't get rattled or lose his cool much. That's why seeing him look upset in a photo taken during a recent practice was so surprising. Earlier this week, we asked readers to submit their own altered photos explaining why...

Bonus video of the day: The Herald’s Patriots reporters break down a Tebow-filled week

It has been a hectic, Tim Tebow-filled week in Patriots land. Sure, sure, we discussed other things, but no one dominated the discussion like the Broncos quarterback. Before we ship out to Denver to get ready for Sunday’s matchup, colleague Karen Guregian and I broke down the week that was in our weekly video. Here it is, as edited by Bob Greim:

The Unknown Soldiers – Broncos Defense Gets Lost in the Hype

The Tim Tebow show has arrived for Patriots fans. Cam Newton is having a great rookie season, much better than Tebow’s sophomore campaign. However, the difference is Denver has a very good defense compared to Carolina’s sorry bunch. The Broncos have two great edge rushers in Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil. Though he’s getting up there in age, Champ Bailey still shuts down...
