The Patriots’ third-quarter offensive struggles are so bad, they make the Buccaneers feel better about themselves.

Defensive tackle Sealver Siliga has apparently agreed to a deal with the Patriots. The 23-year-old Tweeted from his personal account Tuesday evening with news of the agreement.

Proud to say I am now officially a New England patriot!

FOXBORO — Bill Belichick may want to move on from Sunday’s overtime loss to the Jets but he hinted Tuesday during his conference call with reporters that he’s still a little ticked off by how the “pushing rule” was enforced.

Veteran defensive end Andre Carter will re-sign with the Patriots on Tuesday, according to ESPN. Carter, who spent the 2011 season with New England, is a 34-year-old who has also played for the Niners, Redskins and Raiders over the course of his career.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter joined Dennis & Callahan on Tuesday morning to discuss the Patriots’ Week 7 loss to the Jets, as well as other news from around the NFL.

Sunday’s game ended in controversy, as the Patriots were called for breaking the NFL’s new “pushing rule” while Jets kicker Nick Folk attempted a 56-yard field goal to win the game in overtime.

The Patriots released defensive tackle Andre Neblett on Monday afternoon.

The 25-year-old Neblett was originally signed by the Patriots on Wednesday, Oct. 9, and released on Oct. 12 to make room on the 53-man roster for Marcus Forston. Neblett was then re-signed on Oct. 16 and appeared in Sunday’s game vs. the N.Y. Jets. He did not record any statistics.

Patriots defensive end Rob Ninkovich, one of the team’s new defensive captains following season-ending injuries to Vince Wilfork and Jerod Mayo, joined Mut & Merloni on Monday afternoon to talk about Sunday’s 30-27 overtime loss to the Jets.

Bill Belichick acknowledged Monday morning that his team was in the wrong when it came to their understanding of the new field goal rule that tripped up the Patriots in the late stages of Sunday’s overtime loss to the Jets.

Tom Brady made his weekly Patriots Monday appearance on Dennis & Callahan to talk about Sunday’s overtime loss to the Jets.

The game ended on an overtime field goal from Jets kicker Nick Folk, who was given a second chance after a penalty on Patriots defensive lineman Chris Jones for pushing a teammate into the line. The rule is new this year, but Brady said the team was aware of it.
