FOXBORO — The first real indication that 14-2 might be truly in the rearview came Wednesday morning with a film session that was more critical than anything Roger Ebert could have dreamed up.

So much of the success of this year’s Patriots team has been a multigenerational effort, with rookies and second-year players meshing well with established veterans. It’s produced a 14-2 regular-season record and the top seed in the AFC playoff race.
