Throwback week generates chatter

FOXBOROUGH, Mass., -- Tight end Benjamin Watson had faced a few Xs and Os questions Thursday afternoon, but nothing of the hard-hitting variety. So it was time to deliver a tough one:

"Do you like wearing throwback uniforms?"

Watson chuckled at the "hard" question, as the Patriots will be wearing their red throwbacks Sunday in Miami. Had the game stayed at night, the Patriots would have been in their white throwbacks.

"I think it's fun to wear something different. It's always fun to put on a different costume and go out and play," he said.

Watson wore a white Patriots cap with the "Pat Patriot" logo in the locker room Thursday.

"I decided I'd throw it on and show a little throwback support," he chuckled.
