Throughout September and October, various members of the Patriots defense would talk optimistically about the progress they were making as a unit, the fact that they were coming together and starting to jell.

Here are 10 matchups we’ll be looking for in Sunday’s Patriots-Redskins game:
Christopher Price
12/09/2011 - 1:03am
FOXBORO -- For an NFL team, choosing between Clay Matthews or Rob Gronkowski might be the ultimate win-win scenario.
Christopher Price
12/07/2011 - 10:48pm
FOXBORO -- With three-quarters of the regular-season in the books, there’s little debate as to who the most impactful Patriots’ rookie of 2011 has been: offensive lineman Nate Solder wins the honor almost by default.
Christopher Price
12/07/2011 - 3:15pm
FOXBORO -- Call it the Curse of Jabar Gaffney.
Christopher Price
12/06/2011 - 11:47pm
In New England, it’s as dependable as Sagamore Bridge traffic on a Friday afternoon in the summer or corruption on Beacon Hill: If the Patriots are in the red zone and quarterback Tom Brady looks for tight end
Christopher Price
12/05/2011 - 11:49pm
FOXBORO -- The Patriots' regular-season journey through the NFC East comes to an end this Sunday when they travel to face the Redskins.
Christopher Price
12/05/2011 - 1:21am
FOXBORO -- Brian Waters is smart. He’s also been around the league for a few years. So even though he’s only been in New England since the summer, when Sunday’s game between the Patriots and the Colts ended, he knew what his team was in for.
Christopher Price

Here are the 10 matchups we’ll be looking for in Sunday’s Patriots-Colts game at Gillette Stadium: WHEN THE PATRIOTS HAVE THE BALL
Christopher Price
11/30/2011 - 8:46pm
FOXBORO -- There are two ways you can look at the improved statistics for the Patriots’ defense. One, since the ugly loss to the Steelers in Pittsburgh on Oct. 30, the group has started to come together as a collective unit. Since that defeat, the numbers have improved in several defensive areas, and continue to trend in a positive direction.
Christopher Price
11/29/2011 - 11:44pm
Julian Edelman’s recent two-way ability sparked a lot of conversation about how the Patriots occasionally utilize players at unique positions.
Christopher Price
11/29/2011 - 12:32am
FOXBORO -- Here come the Colts. The 0-11 Indianapolis Colts.
Christopher Price
11/28/2011 - 2:25am
You can’t fake the relationship between Tom Brady and Deion Branch.
Christopher Price
11/26/2011 - 12:32pm
Here are 10 matchups we’ll be looking for in Sunday’s Patriots-Eagles game in Philadelphia: WHEN THE PATRIOTS HAVE THE BALL
Christopher Price
11/25/2011 - 12:53am
FOXBORO -- Andre Carter has seen firsthand the sort of damage Michael Vick can do.
Christopher Price
11/22/2011 - 9:37pm
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.
Christopher Price
11/22/2011 - 6:10am
FOXBORO -- Now, there should be no doubt. No more talk of Jason Witten or Antonio Gates or Dallas Clark.
Christopher Price
11/19/2011 - 2:28pm
Here are 10 matchups we’ll be looking for in Monday night’s Patriots-Chiefs game at Gillette Stadium: WHEN THE PATRIOTS HAVE THE BALL
Christopher Price
11/18/2011 - 12:11am
FOXBORO -- If the Patriots are going to lean on the no-huddle offense Monday night against the Chiefs as much as they have over the course of the first nine games of the season, they’ll meet a Kansas City defense that has almost no experience when it comes to facing a no-huddle this season.
Christopher Price
11/16/2011 - 12:52am
In a curious scheduling quirk, Monday night’s game against the Chiefs at Gillette Stadium will mark just the second time in six years (and the first time since the season opener in 2008) that the Patriots will face Kansas City.
Christopher Price
11/15/2011 - 9:50pm
The performance of tight end Rob Gronkowski over the last year-plus has been nothing short of impressive.
Christopher Price
11/15/2011 - 12:47am
Early Monday morning, Jets coach Rex Ryan was asked about New York’s chances of winning the division. He sounded like a beaten man.
Christopher Price
11/14/2011 - 5:23am
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The screaming was long and loud and steady.

Here are 10 matchups worth keeping an eye on in Sunday’s Patriots-Jets game: WHEN THE PATRIOTS HAVE THE BALL

FOXBORO -- In 2010, no team in the NFL was better when it came to takeaways than the Patriots. In 2011, it’s a different story.
