The article focuses on the American football team New England Patriots and some of its key players. Kevin Faulk, who returned in the victory over the Jets after missing eight games because of a broken foot, will make a big difference as a third-down back. He has a tremendous feel for the passing game and knows how to get open on short routes against linebackers. OLB Willie McGinest is playing a lot for a 12-year veteran because of the constant turnover on defense. McGinest has lost mobility, he can't drop into coverage much, and he's not as fast off the edge.
