FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Colin Kaepernick is giving the New England Patriots some extra things to think about this week.
As if defending perennial Pro Bowl running back Frank Gore wasn’t enough of a concern, the Patriots (10-3) now must focus on curtailing San Francisco’s shifty quarterback in front of a national audience Sunday night.
“Our job is to contain him, running and passing,” New England defensive end Chandler Jones said Friday. “Kaepernick’s a good athlete. He can throw the ball and he can run as well. It’s our job to contain him.”
Easier said than done.
