Patriots’ Chris Jones Knows Roster Spot Isn’t Guaranteed In 2014

BROCKTON, Mass. — The 2014 New England Patriots aren’t trying to be negative — just realistic. Very few players are stone-cold locks to make the 2014 roster, and the competition between the rest of the Patriots should only make the team better as a unit.

Rapid reaction to the penalty that decided the game | New England Patriots: Do you agree with the penalty called against Chris Jones and the New England Patriots?  It looked like New England was going to escape the Meadowlands with a tight, overtime victory—but it all changed in a matter of just one penalty.
