The New England Patriots were victorious on the field Sunday afternoon, pulling out a 20-10 victory in a rather large AFC East showdown - a division that will now be a weekly four-way battle for first place. Unfortunately for New England, it was a rather costly victory as outside linebacker Adalius Thomas suffered a broken arm, as reported by ESPN's Michael David Smith.

The injury is serious enough that, according to "a source," Thomas could miss the remainder of the season.
Linebacker Adalius Thomas, who has started all nine games for the Patriots and is tied for the team lead with five sacks, suffered a broken left forearm in the first half of the Patriots 20-10 win, according to sources. The sources believe the injury is likely season ending. "It's not good. He's probably done [for the season]," said one source.
The Patriots team that will be taking the field now is vastly different from the one that opened the season in Foxboro. Instead of relying on Tom Brady, Rodney Harrison, Laurence Maroney, and Adalius Thomas, the defending conference champions are now relying on Matt Cassel, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, and Brandon Meriweather, among others. And they're still winning.
