Patriots are turnover specialists

FOXBOROUGH — The tone was set back in Week 1 in Tennessee, over a four-play span in a win over the Titans.

On the second play of the second quarter, Patriots rookie safety Tavon Wilson intercepted a pass in the end zone. Barely three minutes later, on the third play of Tennessee’s next drive, quarterback Jake Locker was stripped of the ball by rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, and the fumble was recovered by rookie linebacker Dont’a Hightower, who returned it 6 yards for a touchdown.
