FOXBORO -- The Patriots' regular-season journey through the NFC East comes to an end this Sunday when they travel to face the Redskins.

FOXBORO -- Brian Waters is smart. He’s also been around the league for a few years. So even though he’s only been in New England since the summer, when Sunday’s game between the Patriots and the Colts ended, he knew what his team was in for.

Here are the 10 matchups we’ll be looking for in Sunday’s Patriots-Colts game at Gillette Stadium: WHEN THE PATRIOTS HAVE THE BALL

11/30/2011 - 9:46pm
FOXBORO -- There are two ways you can look at the improved statistics for the Patriots’ defense. One, since the ugly loss to the Steelers in Pittsburgh on Oct. 30, the group has started to come together as a collective unit. Since that defeat, the numbers have improved in several defensive areas, and continue to trend in a positive direction.

Julian Edelman’s recent two-way ability sparked a lot of conversation about how the Patriots occasionally utilize players at unique positions.

FOXBORO -- Andre Carter has seen firsthand the sort of damage Michael Vick can do.
Christopher Price
11/22/2011 - 10:37pm
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.
Christopher Price
11/22/2011 - 7:10am
FOXBORO -- Now, there should be no doubt. No more talk of Jason Witten or Antonio Gates or Dallas Clark.

Here are 10 matchups we’ll be looking for in Monday night’s Patriots-Chiefs game at Gillette Stadium: WHEN THE PATRIOTS HAVE THE BALL
Christopher Price
11/18/2011 - 1:11am
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 - 1:52am
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.

The performance of tight end Rob Gronkowski over the last year-plus has been nothing short of impressive.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The screaming was long and loud and steady.

FOXBORO -- In 2010, no team in the NFL was better when it came to takeaways than the Patriots. In 2011, it’s a different story.

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 - 3:55pm
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
