For complete Colvin, sacks to come

(Continued)

A week later, the Patriot defense is better for it. Now, where will Denver choose to run?

"You just have to understand it's a team sport, and everybody's role will vary, down to down, game to game," said Colvin. "If you've got guys mature enough to handle it, it makes it all the more successful."

Colvin chooses to point to his tackle totals (nine through two games) as opposed to his sack count when judging his play. A week ago, he was one of the only Pats defenders not to miss a tackle.

The Purdue product will always remember what brought him here, though.

"I try to do the best I can rushing the passer," he said. "I like showing my speed, getting off the ball and making it look like I'm fast. But it depends on the situation, if the opportunity is there, and that's what the defense calls for."

Foxboro fodder

Last night's Rolling Stones concert had clearly taken over the stadium, with a monstrous stage dominating the south end of the field. ... Recovering fullback Patrick Pass donned Deion Branch's No. 83 knit winter cap while seated at his locker during the media time. ...

No surprises on the opening injury report for the week, other than the absence of Corey Dillon, who chose not to talk yesterday. Matt Light, probable with a knee injury, was the only real addition.

Safety Artrell Hawkins, offensive lineman Nick Kaczur and rookie receiver Chad Jackson all were listed as questionable.
