Bills Target Happy Secondary

Karl Rove is not the only one targeting gays this November. Frank Dell'Apa moves from the Revolution beat over to their Gillette Stadium bretheren.

Patriots right cornerback Randall Gay realizes he has been the opposition's No. 1 target, and will remain so in Sunday night's game against Buffalo.

"Personally, being that I am a rookie with not a lot of experience," Gay said yesterday, "I would pick on me, too. I have to expect that every play is coming at me. I have to be ready because the ball could be coming at me every play. But that's what you play the game for."

Bingo! We've got Bingo!

As the weekend hangover clears, a rather lucid Bob Ryan writes a stirring tribute to Patriot WR/CB Troy Brown.

I've always said that Steve Grogan was my all-time get-to-the-gut, most rootable Patriot, but no longer. Steve's now No. 2.

Rising to the top of the chart: Troy Brown.

The man is simply a pro's pro. It is just so completely predictable and logical that the coach would turn to him in the team's time of need.

Don't tell anybody, but I hear he's been working on his long snapping. I mean, you never know.

Champs Stomp Rams 40-22

Put this tape on the shelf for future viewing. The Patriots unleashed another definitive T-E-A-M effort, with it's 40-22 victory over the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome.

Ron Borges kicks off with a look at the versatility and resilency of the Patriots.

The Patriots had a linebacker catch a pass for a touchdown, a kicker throw a pass for a touchdown, and a wide receiver, practice squad player, linebacker, and rookie free agent all play defensive back at various times without serious consequences. It all symbolized what has made the Patriots the most resilient team in the league.

"This is probably as much of a team victory as anything I've ever been around," coach Bill Belichick said. "They fought to the end. That's what a team's about. Everyone doing their job."


Michael Felger thinks Coach Belichick sits at the left hand of Jesus.

It's not like Bill Belichick and his staff needed any affirmation of their greatness, but yesterday provided one just the same.

For the second time in less than three years, Belichick wiped the Astroturf clean with Rams coach Mike Martz. All the conditions favored St. Louis at the Edward Jones Dome, just as they did in New Orleans in Super Bowl XXXVI, but once again it was Belichick and his irrepressible roster that out-smarted, outworked and thoroughly stunned the Greatest Show on Turf.


George Kimball puts down the dinner rolls with a look at Adam Vinatieri's big day.

His players were still milling about at the line of scrimmage like 11 Jeff Suppans, but from across the field on the Rams' sideline, Mike Martz could see what was about to happen. By the time he could get a word of warning out of his mouth, though, it was too late.

Adam Vinatieri, who had already kicked four field goals, lined up to kick another. But out of the corner of his eye, Martz noticed that Brown - not normally part of the New England field goal unit - was on the field, and that he had drifted off by himself on the left flank. The St. Louis players, in the meantime, were shuffling about, oblivious to the deception that was about to unfold.

Suddenly Lonie Paxton snapped the ball directly to Vinatieri, who wound up and lobbed a perfect spiral to Brown in the end zone for a touchdown.
