Patriots looking like themselves after slow start to season

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The Patriots have rarely shown signs of vulnerability during Bill Belichick's tenure.

So, when New England began the season 2-2 with a pair of home losses, questions crept up about the stability of a team trying to defend its latest Super Bowl title.

But despite a preseason injury to Julian Edelman, inconsistent play from some of its offseason additions and shaky play on defense that included a season-ending injury to Dont'a Hightower, New England has reeled off six straight wins. It can guarantee its 17th consecutive winning season with a victory against AFC East rival Miami on Sunday.
