Who's up and who's down
By Mike Reiss
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- A look at who's up and who's down from the Patriots' 35-7 victory over the Jaguars:
With plenty of time in the pocket, quarterback is accurate to the tune of a 23-of-26 day, totaling 267 yards and four touchdowns.
Safety looks like a missle in making a big tackle on third-and-1 on the Jaguars' first drive, which turns out to be a key play in the game, and later adds an interception.
Running back finishes with 95 yards on 12 carries, with one touchdown. His 55-yard run out of a power set in the second quarter is one of the impressive plays of the game.
-- When the quarterback isn't hit once and the running game totals a season-high 197 rushing yards, it's a credit to the big guys up front.
-- Safety wraps up running back
on fourth-and-1 on the opening drive, which ends up being a turning point in the game.
-- Receiver totals 13 catches for 138 yards in his latest stellar performance.
Running back loses a fumble at the goal line in the first quarter and doesn't play again.
