It’s the return of Mythbusters. This week, we take a look at five of the myths surrounding the Patriots and Jaguars before their Sunday game in Jacksonville: With the Patriots’ passing game, there’s no room in the offense for a 300-carry rusher.

No group of first-year players since the Patriots’ 2003 rookie class has delivered more of a collective jolt in their first season in the league than New England’s 2012 rookies.

Tell Ryan Mallett to loosen up his arm, and get Jake Bequette, James Develin and Mike Rivera ready for some serious snaps. If you’re the Patriots, it’s time to do whatever it takes to create an easier postseason path between now and New Orleans -- and that might include losing.

The Patriots meet the Niners Sunday night at Gillette Stadium in a game between two of the league’s elite teams. New England comes into the contest at 10-3, and with an eye on securing one of the top two seeds in the AFC playoff picture.

The idea the Patriots’ success this season has been because they’ve been gifted with a softer schedule than the rest of their AFC counterparts is one of the league’s great misconceptions. The truth of the matter is that by just about every metric, New England has faced the sternest test of any of its conference counterparts.

In the NFL’s high-rent district, Sunday marked the end of one journey and the start of another.
