Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. This week's chat kicked off at noon, can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics:
1. Kevin Faulk, the possibility of him being promoted to the roster, and what role he might play.
2. Ditto for defensive linemen Ron Brace and Brandon Deaderick.
3. Picking the remaining game that piques the interest the most.
4. Chad Ochocinco and his lack of impact.
5. Things are looking up for the defense.
6. Patriots vs. Ravens -- who wins?
