Here is a matchup to watch in the Week Seven game between the Patriots and Vikings.
Here's a look at how the Patriots' first-year players are faring through six games:
The Patriots' rookies each made an impact in the Patriots' overtime win over the Ravens, including two rookies who were active for only the second time this season.
In the Patriots' victory over the Ravens, their starting linebackers, including rookie Brandon Spikes, made big plays to seal the win late.
The Jets are pleased with the play of starting FB Tony Richardson and his backup, rookie John Connor, who are supporting the team's better-known RB duo, according to AFC East Whispers.
The Patriots have signed LB Brandon Spikes, leaving them with only one unsigned draft pick.
