On Sunday night, hours after the Patriots allowed another 250-plus yard passing performance from a quarterback (the 11th time this season an opposing quarterback threw for at least 250 yards on New England), former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison called out the New England secondary.

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.
