In today's News Blitz, Laurence Maroney and Corey Dillon may not want to be called a one-two punch, but the media noticed the hits the duo put down in Friday's game against the Falcons.

*The Boston Globe's *Mike Reiss reports that running backs Corey Dillon and Laurence Maroney gave coach Bill Belichick what he was looking for in Friday's game at Atlanta. Coach Belichick said one of the big differences between evaluating players in practice and games is the yards gained after contact. The debut performances of running backs Corey Dillon and Laurence Maroney rated highly in that category.

Patriots linebacker **Rosevelt Colvin** is all business. On the field he's in the business of banging heads, but off the field his business is booming as well. The Globe's Mike Reiss has the story.

Included are three players Felger sees as up-and-coming and three on their way down. In a related story, Felger puts the spotlight on tight end and running back draftees since 2000.
