If you need a snapshot of what most preseason finales are all about, consider this scene from a fourth preseason game few years back: Before the kickoff, the Patriots captains walked to midfield for the coin toss, a group that included veteran linebacker Tedy Bruschi.

FOXBORO — The third week of the preseason is always a little more intense — the starters go deeper into the game, there's more game-planning and there's a regular-season feel to much of the action.

FOXBORO — With the preseason halfway done and the regular season just two-plus weeks away, the few starting positions that were up for grabs at the start of the summer are starting to come into a sharper focus. Here’s a look at four positions that were question marks heading into training camp, and where those positional battles now stand.

FOXBORO — For someone who speaks English as a second language, Sebastian Vollmer has no problems expressing how great it is to have his rookie season in the rear-view mirror. “It’s nice,” the 6-foot-8, 315-pound tackle said with a smile.

FOXBORO — When the Patriots’ rookies went through the annual pre-practice soaking the other day — courtesy of quarterback Tom Brady — not all the first-year players looked completely enthused about the situation.
