OAKLAND TO BOSTON ON RED-EYE -- With rookie Stevan Ridley integrated into the mix, a closer look at how the running back snaps were split in the Patriots' 31-19 win over the Raiders (as charted in press box):

BenJarvus Green-Ellis -- 39 of 66
Stevan Ridley -- 19 of 66
Danny Woodhead -- 6 of 66

(Holding, illegal contact, offsides and holding penalties included.)

QUICK HITS: Ridley played five snaps in the first half and saw extended time in the second half with Woodhead sidelined with what looked like a left ankle injury. ... Green-Ellis played 21 first-half snaps and 18 in the second. ... Dane Fletcher was on four times as a lead-blocking fullback. ... Full snap counts for the offense to be posted later this morning... Ridley played a season-high 11 snaps last week after playing two the week in his season debut.
