Danny Woodhead is Patriots’ go-to guy

FOXBOROUGH ­— It’s not simply a personality trait of Danny Woodhead’s to shun the negative and embrace the positive. His production on the football field almost always follows suit.

Those who have watched Woodhead this season have seen the pride of North Platte, Neb., set a career high for touchdowns (seven) in his third year with the Patriots. They’ve seen him become the first Patriot since Kevin Faulk in 2008 to join the 40-40 club, with at least 40 carries and 40 receptions in the same season; Woodhead has 76 rushes and 40 catches.
