Carucci: Beating Bills won't answer questions
By: DJ Bean

NFL.com senior writer Vic Carucci joined The Big Show on Friday and, having attended both of the Patriots' games this season, said that, "'concerned' would be the right word to use" regarding the team's play in the second half. Last week, the Patriots were outscored 18-0 by the Jets in a 28-14 loss at the Meadowlands.

 

With a home game this week against Buffalo, Carucci said the Patriots will not have the opportunity to truly answer the questions people are asking about them because the Bills have "gone backwards a lot" last season. 

 

"Will this game tell me something about their mindset or character? Things that are reflective of how they respond to a poor showing last week, and maybe a poor half," Carucci said.

NFL fines Jets' Smith $7,500 for Welker hit

The NFL fined Jets safety Eric Smith $7,500 for his head shot hit on Patriots receiver Wes Welker in the first quarter of last Sunday's game at the Meadowlands. 

 

The NFL ruled that Smith, who was targeting Welker on a crossing pattern over the middle, unnecessarily struck a receiver in a defenseless position and handed down the fine. Welker walked off under his own power and was given several functional tests by Patriots doctor Thomas Gill on the sideline before being cleared to re-enter the game. 

 

The Jets were penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness on the play and Patriots coach Bill Belichick was animated his discussion of the play at the time with a side judge. Smith remained in the game and was not suspended for this week's game against the Dolphins. 

 

No Patriots players were fined this week.
