McDonald, 8

Drew, 9

Ortiz, DH

Lowell, 3

Lowrie, 6

Meriweather: 'Everybody makes mistakes'

FOXBORO -- Brandon Meriweather has been the lightning rod for the storm of criticism that has hit the Patriots defense this year.

 

Whether it was blown coverage in Week 2 in a 28-14 loss to the Jets, when Mark Sanchez went off in the second half or it was the D's inability to put away the likes of Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Bills last week, Meriweather has been pointed to as one of the reasons the team is giving up gobs of yards.

 

Meriweather has - for all intents and purposes - been yanked from his starting free safety job and now just plays in certain situations, sharing responsibilities with Patrick Chung.

 

"My feelings have nothing to do with this team," Meriweather said. "Whether it's pissing me off or it's not, that has nothing to do with this team. The coaches are gonna make the best decisions for the team and I'm gonna go with it. Everybody makes mistakes," Meriweather...
