Tate already has made an impact this season with two touchdowns on kickoff returns for the New England Patriots. Now he should get more of a chance as a receiver.||||||| With Randy Moss traded to Minnesota and Deion Branch newly arrived in a deal with Seattle, the speedster whose past two seasons were ruined by knee injuries looms as a more prominent target Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Tate has started two of the Patriots four games and caught 11 passes. But he returned second-half kickoffs for a 97-yard touchdown in the season opener and a 103-yard score in the fourth game.

He also showed his explosiveness on special teams.
