iosphotos054652-NFL-AFC-Playoff-San-Antonio-Cromartie.jpgVince Wilfork spent a few minutes with local media just a short time ago, and hit on a number of topics, including the offseason the Patriots' AFC East rival New York Jets are enjoying, acquiring standout players LaDainian Tomlinson, Antonio Cromartie and Santonio Holmes.

"Hey -- the game is played between these lines out there," Wilfork said, motioning to the Gillette Stadium turf a few feet behind him. "They're making moves. They're making great moves, but at the end of the day the game is played between the lines. We can only control what the Patriots can control."

Many pundits now have New York as the team to beat in the division, both on the strength of their appearance in the AFC Championship game in January and their recent moves to fortify areas of weakness.
