Five big problems for the Patriots
3. Receiving corps
Chad Ochocinco simply hasn't panned out, Deion Branch is inconsistent, and Aaron Hernandez looks like he's still injured. Combine that with the fact that teams seem to be figuring out how to slow down Wes Welker -- 84 combined receiving yards in his last two games against the Cowboys and Steelers -- and the vaunted Patriots offense isn't so vaunted. Tom Brady just isn't going to bail the team out every week.
