FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick wrapped up his last press conference of the week moments ago. Here are some highlights:
On challenges of winning on the road: "I just think the league's so competitive that it's a fine line between winning and losing throughout the league. ... Any little advantage of being at home, having the crowd, the familiarity of the stadium, the turf, the situation whatever it is, there's a little bit of home field advantage there. ..."
On rookie DE/LB Jermaine Cunningham playing for the first time in a regular season game: "He was doing well in training camp and up into the Saints practices andt hen wasn't able to play in any of the preseason games, so he fell a little bit behind. The game last week was kind of like his first preseason game. ... He's got a long way to go. I think he's making strides, he's working hard, he's improving. He's just got to amke up for a lot of lost time and some game experience that he needs to acquire from all aspects. ..."
On potential roster move for the 53rd spot: "I still think we'll make one here before the week is over."
On Jason Taylor: "Jason's had a great career and still continues to be productive. A tough guy to block off the edge; he's long; he's quick. He's very experienced. He knows how to use the tools and skills that he has and still does a good job."
