Christopher Price
11/22/2011 - 9:37pm

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.

FOXBORO -- While Albert Haynesworth remains a convenient punching bag for the ills of the New England defense over the first half of the season, he wasn’t the only new defensive lineman who has had an underwhelming start to his career with the Patriots.
Christopher Price
11/09/2011 - 2:55pm
FOXBORO -- The dynamic along the Patriots’ defensive line had already started to shift before Tuesday’s the release of Albert Haynesworth -- he had been supplanted in the starting lineup by second-year lineman Kyle Love -- but with the decision to cut ties with Haynesworth, the yo

Christopher Price
11/08/2011 - 1:28am

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady has been here before, and he knows what’s coming.
