* Tedy Bruschi, Larry Izzo and Tom Brady led the Patriots in stretching. Bruschi drew an applause as one of the players to lead the team onto the field for pre-game stretching.
* If warm-ups are any indication, it looks like Mike Vrabel will start at inside linebacker next to Tedy Bruschi. That would put Rosevelt Colvin into a starting role at outside linebacker.
* Patrick Pass took the first repetitions at running back in warm-ups, a sign Corey Dillon might see a less-than-full load tonight.
* Don Davis worked with the secondary in warm-ups.
