Pats secondary set for Manning rematch

Especially when those guys are Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker and Wes Welker. They combined for 252 catches for 3,496 yards and 35 touchdowns for Denver.

But the Patriots still have Talib, Dennard, Gregory and McCourty trying to contain them.

“They have a good comfort level out on the football field,” Patricia said. “So as much as you can have the continuity within a group — especially in the back end — I think it is always what is going to help you in the long run.”

NOTES: Belichick had no update on punter Ryan Allen, who left last Saturday’s game after hurting his shoulder when he was hit after recovering a bad snap. “We’ll put out our injury report (Wednesday) after practice like we usually do,” Belichick said. He said the Patriots could sign a punter as late as Friday or let placekicker Stephen Gostkowski fill in as he did when Allen was injured. ... Offensive coordinator and former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels, asked about having withdrawn his name for consideration for Cleveland’s head coaching job, said, “I’m really happy here. I’ve said that numerous times.”
