With the new year dawning, the Patriots will face some difficult personnel decisions in 2013. Here are the five that are first on their plate:

FOXBORO -- It took 16 regular-season games and 17 weeks of action, but when the clock struck zero on the regular season Sunday night, there was one very clear thing we learned about the AFC: The Patriots and Broncos are the two best teams in the conference.

With the 2012 regular season set to come to a close this weekend, we decided to take a look at the quarterback situation for all 32 NFL teams, and here’s what we came up with. We ranked the current starting quarterbacks using a series of metrics, including stats, win-loss record, durability, consistency, potential ceiling, contract situation and intangibles.

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.
Christopher Price
12/18/2012 - 3:18pm
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.

FOXBORO -- If the Patriots and 49ers are the two teams left standing at the end, then we’ll remember Sunday night’s game as a terrific appetizer to what should be an amazing main course of football down the road in New Orleans.

The Randy Moss who will face the Patriots Sunday night at Gillette Stadium isn’t the same guy who left New England two-plus years ago.

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.
Christopher Price
12/12/2012 - 2:20am
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.

Remember when the regular-season showdown between the Patriots and Colts was simply the first act of a two-part miniseries that everyone thought was ultimately going to be settled down the road? CBS cranked up the hype machine, national writers fell back on the default “good vs.

In the NFL’s high-rent district, Sunday marked the end of one journey and the start of another. For the Patriots, winning the AFC East title -- which they wrapped up with a 23-16 win over the Dolphins in South Florida -- is the first goal on a to-do list they hope ends with a happy trip to New Orleans in two months.
