In today's News Blitz... Brady and receivers in a 'huddle' of trust, the Pats are a wolf pack, Welker rested and Wilfork unwavering.


The Patriots currently play six wide receivers, three tight ends and five running backs, all of which could be on the receiving end of a Tom Brady pass at a given play. Needless to say, trust becomes a huge factor on who Brady throws it to. Read about how newcomers, rookie tight ends, Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski, have built this sense of trust since the preseason. And read how veterans like Wes Welker still maintain a solid give-and-take with the Pats signal caller to complete the pass in the *Boston Globe*.

Picture a wolf pack feeding off the energy of its individual members.

After Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker sat for New England's final regular-season game against the Dolphins, he's rested and ready for the playoffs. The Pats endured a full-hitting practice, the first in over a month, to stay sharp over the bye week.
