FOXBORO — For the Patriots, their Nov. 7 defeat to the Browns in Cleveland has become a cautionary tale — ample evidence that no matter what your record might be and who’s on the opposing sideline, you simply can’t roll out there with a subpar effort and expect to win.

FOXBORO — When free agency rolled around last spring, defensive end Julius Peppers was at the top of just about everyone’s wish list. He had just finished up eight seasons with the Panthers where he had 81 sacks, including 14.5 in 2008.
