Stevan Ridley benched after latest fumble

FOXBOROUGH — It didn’t take long for the same problem to resurface, which put Stevan Ridley in the same spot: in the doghouse, and on the bench.

Ridley, who came into Sunday night’s game against the Broncos having lost three fumbles, lost another on the Patriots’ first series, which started a lowlight tape tailor-made for the “Football Follies” put together by NFL Films. Ridley’s was the first of 11 — count ’em, 11 — combined fumbles by the teams, six by the Patriots, who lost three of them, yet still won, 34-31 in overtime.
