It won’t be the matchup of the superpowers that some envisioned when the season began, but Sunday’s game between the Patriots and Eagles should be one of the most compelling matchups of the week.



Patriots coach Bill Belichick made his weekly appearance on the Big Show Tuesday, discussing Monday's win over the Chiefs and the team's upcoming meeting with the Eagles. 

With Monday's 34-3 win over Kansas City Monday, Belichick surpassed former boss Bill Parcells and moved into ninth place on the all-time wins list. Belichick, who now has 184 career wins (including postseason) as a head coach, fondly recalled his days of working with Parcells and said he appreciated where he stands historically. 

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork made his weekly appearance on The Big Show Tuesday, discussing Monday's 34-3 victory over the Chiefs and where the Pats stand through 11 weeks of the season.

One bright spot in Monday's victory was Julian Edelman. The third year receiver, who played quarterback at Kent State, played defensive back and linebacker in addition to having a 72-yard punt return for a touchdown. 

Just hours after leading the Patriots to a 34-3 rout of the Chiefs, quarterback Tom Brady checked in with Dennis & Callahan Tuesday morning for his weekly discussion.

The Patriots were shut out in the first quarter but found their rhythm shortly thereafter and pulled away for the big win.

FOXBORO -- Patriots left tackle Matt Light, who was injured late in Monday's 34-3 win over the Chiefs at Gillette Stadium, was spotted with a walking boot on his right foot after the game. The 33-year-old Light, in his 11th season with the Patriots, was replaced at left tackle by rookie first-round pick Nate Solder. For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/patriots.

FOXBORO -- Now, there should be no doubt. No more talk of Jason Witten or Antonio Gates or Dallas Clark.



FOXBORO -- Tom Brady connected for touchdown passes of 52 and 19 yards to Rob Gronkowski while Kyle Arrington had two interceptions to lead the Patriots to a 34-3 blowout win over the Chiefs Monday night at Gillette Stadium. As a result, the 7-3 Patriots, who scored 34 unanswered points, now lead the Bills and Jets by two games in the AFC East. 

FOXBORO -- The Patriots have designated three linebackers as well as safety Patrick Chung and running back Kevin Faulk inactive for their Monday night game against the Chiefs.

Brandon Spikes (knee), Dane Fletcher (thumb) and Jeff Tarpinian (illness) all missed practice time this week with various ailments and will not play. Devin McCourty returned to practice on Saturday after injuring his right shoulder in the second quarter last week against the Jets. He is inactive. 

FOXBORO -- Matt Cassel will not get a chance at a comeback this season as he is headed to injured reserve, according to an ESPN report

FOXBORO -- Safety Ross Ventrone is on the move again, this time to the Patriots active squad as the team signed him from the practice squad in the hours before Monday night's game with the Chiefs. To make room, the team released offensive lineman Donald Thomas.

This is the 16th transaction this season for the 25-year-old Ventrone, who has spent time on both the practice squad and 53-man roster this season, playing in five games.
