The New England Patriots defeated the visiting New York Jets 26-6 in the two teams' final game of the regular season. It was the defending world champions' 13th win of the season – which in turn lead to the team heading out practice players of the week honors for the 13th time yesterday. The following players were awarded:

WR Chris Hogan

TE Will Tye

OL Cole Croston

OL LaAdrian Waddle

DL Ricky Jean Francois

DB David Jones

The name that most stands out is Chris Hogan. The wide receiver returned from injury recently but was ultimately declared inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets. Still, seeing him named as one of the practice players of the week is a good sign for his work behind the scenes and his road back from a shoulder injury that forced him to miss a total of seven games this season.

This week's honor is Hogan's first of the year – the same goes for LaAdrian Waddle and Ricky Jean Francois. Will Tye and Cole Croston were named practice players once before; David Jones received the accolade four times prior to this week, tying the team-lead with five practice player of the week awards during the regular season.
