FOXBOROUGH, Mass. John Brown Authentic Jersey . - The New England Patriots let Knowshon Moreno run for 134 yards in their season opener. Now they must face Adrian Peterson. Scary? "You know what? I love it," defensive tackle Sealver Siliga said Wednesday. "This is going to be a good test and I think our teams real excited." One week after Moreno led the Miami Dolphins 191-yard rushing attack in a 33-20 win over New England, the Patriots visit Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. "First-game jitters or whatever you want to call it," Patriots linebacker Donta Hightower said. "For us to want to be a great defence, which is something that all of us agreed we wanted to do, you definitely cant allow the offence to run the ball the way they did." The Patriots also had trouble stopping Lamar Miller, who rushed for 59 yards. Now theyre preparing for another one-two punch of Peterson and wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. Peterson rushed 21 times for 75 yards in last Sundays 34-6 win over the St. Louis Rams after finishing second in the NFL last season with 90.4 yards rushing per game. Patterson ran three times for 102 yards, including a 67-yard touchdown. "Hes definitely a tremendous athlete," Hightower said of Patterson. "You dont see many guys who can do that, come out and play receiver and then actually line up in the backfield and run the ball like a running back." But Peterson is the most dangerous threat to a New England run defence that was weak last season — better than just two teams — and got off to a bad start despite the return of defensive tackle Vince Wilfork and linebacker Jared Mayo from injuries that sidelined them most of last season. Mayo led the Patriots with 12 tackles against Miami, but Wilfork had just two and Hightower was limited to just one unassisted tackle. "We were really disappointed but (its) a new week, a new game," said Siliga, who had six tackles. "All we can do is look forward and learn from what happened and get ready for the Vikings because thats going to be a tough job." The burden will be on the defensive line to wrap Peterson up and not let him get to the linebackers level. Once there, hes liable to take off on another long run. He has 15 runs of 58 yards or more in his seven seasons before this year. Hes run for touchdowns of 64 yards or more in six of those seven seasons. And hes rushed for at least 10 touchdowns every year. "Hes big. Hes fast. Hes strong. Hes smart. He has great vision," Hightower said. "He has everything in a running back that youd want. Its going to take all of our guys being at the point of attack and everybody getting to the ball, so hes not getting that one-on-one matchup to break that tackle and get those extra yards." If Peterson is contained, New England still must contend with new offensive co-ordinator Norv Turners system with Matt Cassel throwing against his former team. Cassel expects the Patriots defence to rebound from their poor performance against the Dolphins. "They always make adjustments and then come back even stronger after a loss," he said. "Im sure there will be changes that they make in terms of scheme and everything else to get it figured out." That still may not be enough to keep the powerful, shifty Peterson from running through their defence. "A guy that big, you wouldnt expect him to be able to hit those cuts and those jump cuts that he does," Hightower said. "But thats something that hes very good at and definitely one of the reasons why hes one of the better backs in the league." Siliga was sidelined for much of the preseason and played against Miami with a heavy wrap on his injured left hand as a precaution. He could be wearing it again Sunday when he tries to tackle Peterson. "Hes hard enough back to take down with two hands, let alone one," Siliga said, "but Im up for the challenge." ___ Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL David Johnson Authentic Jersey .com) - The New York Rangers hope to punch their ticket to the second round when they visit the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday for a Game 6 battle at Wells Fargo Center.

The 25-year-old has already eclipsed that mark this year, notching his 11th 20-plus point game.Wearing his favourite football jersey on a Sunday — an orange Denver Broncos Demaryius Thomas jersey — Butler downplayed his success after averaging 13.1 points last season.I think my teammates just find me in great positions to score the ball, Butler said. I think I strive at just doing whatever it takes to help my team win. Scoring, guarding, facilitating, whatever it might be. Im just a winner. I dont care about stats.Rookie Bojan Bogdanovic led the Nets with 13 points and Jarrett Jack added 12.Derrick Rose had 14 points and reserve Nikola Mirotic chipped in 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Bulls, who capped a seven-game, 14-day road trip with their second straight win and finished 4-3 overall. Chicagos United Center had been reserved for the annual circus show, forcing the Bulls on the road.We ended on a good note. I think that was our best game throughout the entire trip, Rose said. Coming here and ending like this, we have nothing but great vibes from it. We did a lot of positive things out there. We came together as a team defensively.The Bulls, who improved to 9-3 on the road this season, led 47-42 at beginning of the third quarter. After Brooklyns Kevin Garnett hit a five-foot bank jumper that made it 48-46, Gasol ignited a 17-4 run by scoring six of his eight points during the spurt to make it 56-46 with 8:13 left in the quarter.A turnover by Deron Williams led to Rose connecting with Butler for an alley-oop that made it 58-48.

Rose followed that with a 3-pointer and Gasol capped the run by beating the Nets players for a loose ball and making a layup, extending the lead, 65-50 with 5:11 left.During that run for the Bulls, their defence forced three turnovers and made the Nets miss three shots. Overall, Chicago limited Brooklyn to 9-of-25 shooting from the field, including 0 of 7 beyond the arc.We were just getting some easy baskets, getting up and down in transition. But more than anything we were just getting stops on the defensive end, creating a few turnovers and rebounding the basketball, Butler said.The Nets latest loss was their seventh in the last nine games. Brooklyn has yet to beat a team with a winning record this season. Three of their next four games are against teams with records above .500.Consciously, I dont think were thinking of that, Garnett said. I think we respect every team. We try to get ready for every team.TIP-INSBulls: Taj Gibson missed his fourth straight game due to a sprained left ankle. The Brooklyn native last played Nov. 21 at Portland. . Chicago outrebounded the Nets 50-34. Mirotic, Gasol and Joakim Noah combined for 36, 30 of them on the defensive side.Nets: Garnett tied Jason Kidd for sixth place in NBA history with 1,391 games played.ROSE BLOSSOMSBulls coach Tom Thibodeau was pleased with Rose being able to finish out his last two games. He played 27 minutes in the win at Boston on Friday. Against the Nets, the Chicago point guard played 25 minutes and was replaced with team up 22 points with 3:17 left in the game. To me its moving in the right direction, Thibodeau said. When he strings some games together, he practices well and he practices hard, hes going to play well. Its really that simple and its time to go.UP NEXTBulls: Return home to face the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.Nets: Will cross over to Manhattan and visit the New York Knicks for the first time this season.
