FOXBOROUGH - The changing colors of the fall landscape were in crystal-clear view from some perches at Foxboro Stadium yesterday. As was the changing landscape of the AFC East.
Still the doormats, the Patriots are making opponents wipe their feet before entering their home in the AFC cellar. After opening with four straight losses, the door seemed shut and the key nowhere to be found. After two straight wins, including yesterday’s 24-16 beating of the Indianapolis Colts, suddenly the Patriots can look out and see a clear view to the top.
