FOXBORO, Mass. -- Four days after one of the greatest statistical performances of his career, Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork said he's feeling "100 percent fresh" and didn't care about the stats. Wilfork had 11 tackles (nine solo) and one sack during the Patriots' 31-24 victory against the Colts. It was the second-most tackles of his NFL career -- he had 12 against the Bills in 2005 -- and it was the seventh time he's had double-digit stops during his eight seasons in New England. It was the first time since the fourth game of his rookie season that he's...

Patriots' No-Huddle Offense As Much About Attitude As Execution

FOXBORO, Mass. -- After the Patriots only managed one first-quarter possession and watched the Colts dictate the early pace of Sunday's game at Gillette Stadium, quarterback Tom Brady demanded that the offense accelerate its attack with its next opportunity.
