Can Brandon Bolden sneak onto the roster?

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

The Patriots have their final dress rehearsal tonight against the Giants. It will be the last chance for players on the bubble to make this team or practice squad.

The roster has gotten a little clearer, but there still a couple things that have yet to sort themselves out. Who makes the cut this time and who will be looking for a job on Friday?

Even though it was a lowly preseason game, I’ve watched every snap three or four times now and I feel like I’ve fully dissected the action. There were good and bad things to take away from the 7-6 win, but today I’ll concentrate on all the good things.

My six keys to victory after the jump.

NEPD Editor: Doug Kyed

I’m not going to lie to you guys, somehow the fact that I write a mailbag column every Friday completely spaced my mind this week.

It’s a product of the offseason and how much I’m currently concentrating on the 2013 draft class, but that’s no excuse.
