BOSTON -- A few quick morning-after thoughts before my flight home boards:
*More than the throws Nick Foles made, Andy Reid seemed impressed by the way Foles took a big late hit midway through the third quarter, which was penalized, and remained unfazed.
“He was pretty cool and all that. You got to see him take a big hit, and he bounced up from that and didn’t really hesitate, and that was a big hit. Big one,” Reid said. “So he got up and got himself off the ground and and got back in and continued to play well.”
*Middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans, who still didn’t seem to make a lot of plays, was asked about Reid’s much-analyzed upbraiding of the defensive line after the Pats’ first touchdown, and ensuing two-point conversion.
