Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. Today's chat kicked off at noon, can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics:
1. Projecting some playoff matchups for the Patriots.
2. Running back Danny Woodhead and his value to the team.
3. Defensive end Rob Ninkovich, his status, and the depth at that position.
4. Making a prediction for the 2013 draft.
5. Tight end Rob Gronkowski and getting himself back into the mix.
6. A lot of Broncos chatter.
7. Adrian Peterson for MVP -- any objections?
8. Defensive lineman Kyle Love sliding a bit down the depth chart.
