W2W4: Patriots’ key areas vs. Jets

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.. — The New England Patriots visit the New York Jets on Sunday (CBS, 1 p.m. ET), and here are some key areas of note:

Load up the box and stop the run: Led by the hard-charging Chris Ivory, the Jets ran for 218 yards against the Patriots on Oct. 16, with New England defenders struggling to get off blocks consistently and tackle. Part of that was a result of the Patriots playing their fourth game in 18 days, a span which included three prime-time games, and also having a quick turnaround to adjust without injured defensive signal-caller Jerod Mayo. more

Projecting Patriots inactives vs. Jets

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Before the new england patriots play a game, we will attempt to predict the team’s inactive players.

Our best guess for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets:

CB Kyle Arrington: If this was a playoff game, the feeling is that Arrington could be called upon to fulfill his role as the team’s top option in the slot. But the chance to rest him and get him closer to 100 percent, especially since the Jets aren’t a big spread-it-out-and-throw-it team, has merit. more

FOXBOROUGH, Mass — New England Patriots rookie center Bryan Stork adopts an all-business, all-football approach. With his burly red beard and stoic facial expressions, he also has an intimidating look that makes him a nice fit on the team’s offensive line.

But behind it all is a 24-year-old who has been through a lot in his life. Stork’s father, who was also his best friend, passed away in 2008 after battling cancer.

“I always wanted to hang out with my dad,” Stork said. more

Patriots have three defenders in for tryouts

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The New England Patriots had defensive end Cam Henderson (South Florida), defensive tackle Antonio Johnson (Mississippi State) and defensive end/outside linebacker Rufus Johnson (Tarleton State) in for free-agent tryouts Friday.

The Patriots are most familiar with Henderson, as he was a member of their practice squad for a week in September.

The tryouts could be with 2015 in mind, as this is the time of year when clubs start planning for when rosters expand to 90 players, with teams soon allowed to sign players to “future contracts. more
