hightower it's tough to do. two months after breaking his left foot julian returned to game action and picked up where he left off snagging ten passes for 100 yards . i have always been a big practice guy so whether it was baseball, catching ground ball or hitting, swinging it was many time as you can until you feel like you mastered it and do more so that's what i have to do . with edelman back in the lineup it's not coincidence things look like old times against the chiefs. in the games edelman has played, tom brady has more touchdown passes than any other quarterback in the nfl, the best passor rating and the pats have been number two in third down conversion. but the veteran receiver is far from satisfied saying he was disappointed in himself for his . there is plenty of situations that we didn't click and there are plenty of balls
there is always something to work for and you can always do better. if the chiefs rush for 135 yards by taking advantage when dante hightower was force out of the game because of injury. hightower's impact on the run defense is obvious. that's the one thing i take pride in is being aggressive run stopper and that's what i do. that's what i take ride in so it means a lot to me. hightower missing just a game. he did finish the game unlike fellow linebacker jamie collins who left with a back injury. both players are listed as questionable going into sun's af afc championship gail. live in foxboro, alex corddry, 7 news. >> anchor: so brady and the clash . >> anchor: of course the team is going to have to adjust to
trey daerr continuing our coverage. pretty sunny here getting close to 60 degrees today. going to be about mid 40's for the game. speaking of the game itself you almost really never hear any bulletin board type of material. that is not the case in depend very where earlier this week brandon marshall made remarks about rob grokowski pushing off on defenders in an attempt to clear the air. i wasn't aware that all of the patriots fans were being my twitter s and calling me, you know, all kinds of explicit names . >> reporter: linebackers aren't none for back peddling but that's what brandon marshall is doing in regards to comments on rob grin could you ski . i said what i said. i can't take it back. i just have to be ready to cover . if you are going to talk you bet ebe prepared to back it up against one of the game's best. you he beats corners, he beats safeties, he beats linebackers and he will play all . you want to put hands on plate train.
be physical and you want to be on him . he has been doing it for a minute so for us it will be a . for all of the talk of . i feel like in these games they will let play anyway. i don't know if anything i say or anybody else says will have the ref saying we have to look out for that because i doubt that will happen. t not just gronk. the broncos defense has to contend with. they also have julian eeman and danny amendola back on the feel. they were not out there in the new hampshirup in week 12. recording live, trey daerr, 7 news. >> anchor: obviously patriots fans are puffed up for this tie el game and it's getting so building. pats nation giving their predictions on who will shine on sunday. dan hausle live at gillette with >> reporter: well, bill belichick always talks about how all the players have to do their job so we asked the fans to look into their crystal ball and see who they think might be the
headlines on monday. march come butler was the unlikely hero everyone was talking about after last year's super bowl win. so who do fans think they might be talking about monday morning? we're going to need james white. the running gail has been slow. i think they will defend gronk, eedelman. i think white has has. to come up with a few big place . bride elooks to check down to them a lot so i think you can see some big plays out of him . with some predicting this game could come down to a field goal, that would point to just one man . gostkowski the kicker. he could make or break the game. some say the hero could once again come from the defensive side of the line stopping denver in its tracks. they will try to run it up the middle like seattle should have and still will be there with alan branch and make that big old stop for us. >> anchor: so put those names

light snow around metro boston with the heavier snow along the south coast and out on to the cape and there will be strong northeasterly winds that might lead to some minor coastal flooding 11:00 p.m. tomorrow night and 11:00 p.m. sunday morning. powerhouse storm system taking shape moves up the eastern seaboard until about this point. east of cape may, new jersey. and we still have an area of high pressure. think of this as the patriots defensive line at the goal line. the storm is not going to be ale to punch it into the end sewn. it will be forced out underneath new england and so we are right on the edge of this storm which even with that said with these powerhouse storm you can go from nothing which you will have in fitchburg to a fair am of snow along the south coast. so your storm time line again midday tomorrow pockets of light snow and flurries around the metro. steadier snow narragansett bay, southeast mass. buzzards bay and cape and that's the case tomorrow evening 7:00. travel might be a little bit tough southeast mass tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night and metro boston will have light snow tomorrow evening then
after midnight tomorrow night. looks like one to three inches of snow around the metro including the city of boston and then you move northwest get up toward 495 merrimac valley and nashoba river valley. worcester hill, coating, inch, maybe two. south shore, two, three inches of snow then you approach southeast mass basically route 4 44 i have been using that all week. i think once you cross there then you are talking four, five, six informs of snow and pink zone we added that this afternoon i think there will be 7 or 8 inches of snow. ten inches of snow by just after mid night tomorrow night. so travel around metro boston tomorrow afternoon it's fair but i don't think we're talking poor travel conditions. different case south coast and cape so if you have travel plans tomorrow evening around the city of boston, personally i would keep the dinner reservations in the metro. i don't think it's anything overwhelming. it will be similar to what we metro boston. nothing heavy. again, south coast and cape much different. windy conditions tomorrow night
that 11:00 a.m. high tide pockets of mine to moderate coastal flooding so scituate, sandwiches 11:00 a.m. on sunday. 7 sports coming to you live from englewood colorado. soon enough patriots will be here as well. gentlemening out of foxboro earlier today to youing down in denver where they will be greet greeted by sunshine an temperature in the upper 50's leading up through the afc championship game. lower 40's and overnight cast the forecast for sunday just in case you are wondering bill belichick ing a whopping 16 players including julian el el elman, rob grokowski, jamie collins and chandler jones is questionable. dante hightower on that list as well but he and husband teammates ready to do everything they can to avenge their week 12 loss here in denver. this say different game. this is a different team with a different mind set so you know
have to execute it soy don't like to live off old games but there is a bad taste in our mouth and we want to go out and change that . the patriots perhaps take a page out of the rex ryan play book tapping ty law as an honor honorary and tan leading town kick on sunday. law an inspire choice seeing his patriots hall of fame career he picked off payton manning nine times in his career with five those interacceptings coming in the playoffs. current td logan ryan hoping to channel some of that magicked create a few take aways of his own come sunday . no particular step but we win the turnover battle when you win definitely gives you your team a higher percentage of whiching. i just think that's a general football stat an when you have a great offense and great guy like tom brady every time you can take a ball away and give him an extra possession hopefully he
just some football in general. great weather in denver not so much back east the celtics feeling the wrath of the blizzard that's battering the mid-atlantic. their tip tomorrow night in philly already postponed being pushed become to sunday night. the green team hosts chicago bulls tonight at the guard especially. that will do it for us in the afternoon in denver. more to come tonight.
