    Patriots tradition: Receivers don't just catch passes, they throw them, too

    Sunday's 54-13 blowout win over the New York Jets at Gillette Stadium -- which players agreed was exactly what they needed -- was highlighted by a fast start that included receiver Kendrick Bourne connecting with receiver Nelson Agholor on a 25-yard touchdown pass to give the Patriots a 7-0 lead. It was Bourne's first pass attempt in his five-year NFL career, and the first time he can remember throwing a pass in a game since his high school days at Milwaukie Arts Academy in Oregon.
