Bonus Weekend Links For A Sunday Without The Patriots

Three For Two: Branch, Welker and Green-Ellis each scored two TDs against the Lions Sunday.

Greg A. Bedard reports the Monday night showdown Dec. 6 between the Jets and Patriots will get some extra juice from one of the most emotional leaders in Patriots history.

Former linebacker Tedy Bruschi will be honored by the team at halftime of the game at Gillette Stadium.

"Tedy was kind enough to let us honor him,’’ said Patriots owner Robert Kraft. "We know he’s working for ESPN, and knowing what a beloved rival the New York Jets are, we thought it was appropriate.’’

Vince Wilfork was impressed with his young defense and how they played tough in the 2nd half vs. the Lions.

"These guys, young guys, they realized they're professionals," marveled Vince Wilfork after the game. "To be young and realize that, it's tough. But these guys really do. They know it's a profession, they know it's their job. They work their tail off. For somebody like me to see these young guys work their butts off, I feel happy. Here I am seven years in the league, I'm working my butt off and they're right with me. That gives me a lot of support out there on the field."
