Young Patriots go from unknown to unstoppable

AP Sports Writer
      FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – The New England Patriots go into Sunday
night's game against the Green Bay Packers (8-5) tied for the best
record in the NFL in a season that began with uncertainty.
      Coach Bill Belichick said before it started that there were
plenty of unknowns. And with rookies playing key roles, it took a
while to develop consistency. But they have it now and seem
unstoppable after winning their last two games by a combined 81-10.
      The Patriots (11-2) became the first team to clinch a playoff
berth when they beat the Chicago Bears 36-7 last Sunday to improve
to 11-2. Tom Brady leads the NFL with 29 touchdown passes and
hasn't thrown an interception in eight games.
      Team owner Robert Kraft says the players have developed a
chemistry that's pretty special.
