With so many roster moves in the books, and perhaps more on the way, the New England Patriots have taken on a much different look as the prepare for Week 1 in today's News Blitz.

After a hectic week featuring a number of roster cuts, the Patriots have their roster set – for now – and are ready to move full speed head in preparation for Sunday's opener against Kansas City.

However, the roster moves might not be over with yet.

Speaking of which, the *Boston Herald *spoke with NFL Network analyst and former defensive back Solomon Wilcots about the state of the Patriots' secondary. Wilcots thinks newcomer Deltha O'Nealcan make a big impact.

Also, rookie cornerback Terrence Wheatleytalks about his chance encounter with former Patriot and current Eagle Asante Samuel during the team's preseason game against Philadelphia at Gillette Stadium.

Fellow rookieJerod Mayohas also made news this week for his work ethic, which drew praise from Belichick.

On the offensive side of the ball, left tackle Matt Lightis happy to be back after getting some much-needed work in the Patriots' preseason finale.

With so many moving parts, Belichick is unsure how this season will unfold.

“How it will turn out, your guess is as good as mine,” Belichick told the Quincy Patriot Ledger.

Quick hits

The view from Kansas City is much different this week as the Chiefs prepare for a tough test in their season opener.

“(The Patriots) don’t make many mistakes,” head coach Herman Edwards told the Kansas City Star.

The *Star* also asks Belichick to rest Tom Bradyin Week 1.
