Aqib Talib -- Cornerback is playing at a high level, as his fourth-quarter interception continues the Patriots' streak of games with at least one turnover to 31. Also comes up with the big fourth-down stop in the end zone to end the game.
Joe Vellano -- Rookie defensive tackle delivers a big third-quarter sack with a decisive victory over center Peter Konz.

Dont'a Hightower -- Seemed like it was a struggle in coverage for the linebacker.
Zach Sudfeld -- Rookie tight end can't hang on to an onside kick attempt in the fourth quarter.
