FOXBOROUGH -- Tight end Aaron Hernandez and the rest of the Patriots are hoping to beat the Rams in London on Sunday so they can finish the first half of the schedule 5-3 and head into their bye week with some momentum.

"It's never good going in with a loss, especially with the coach that we have," Hernandez said before Wednesday's practice, referring to Bill Belichick. "As long as we follow the game plan, work hard, and play hard, Patriot football, we'll be fine.

"We have enough players, enough athletes, enough dominant players to win every game, so we just got to go play our game, and not hurt ourselves, and we should be fine."

Hernandez has never been to London. It didn't sound like he was ready to gorge on fish-and-chips, hop on the tube, or take in all the sights.

"I really haven't talked about London much with the team or outside the stadium," Hernandez said. "But I'm sure it's a nice place and I'll learn a lot about it when I'm out there. It'll definitely be a good experience."
