A quick note to our readers

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- After the Patriots' 28-13 loss to the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game, our usual schedule on the blog will be altered a bit.

We still plan to go through our regular game review, but it might be delayed a day or so. Ditto for the regular snap counts from the game (e.g. Chandler Jones played just 2 snaps) as we regroup.

Mike Rodak and Field Yates will briefly spin things forward early Monday morning, with a snapshot look at some key issues ahead for the Patriots.

At 9 a.m. ET, we'll be listening for quarterback Tom Brady's wrap-up interview on sports radio WEEI.

At 10 a.m. ET, Bill Belichick will hold his season-ending news conference.

At 11 a.m. ET, media members will have access to the locker room.

Our stories from tonight:

1. Tom Brady in unfamiliar place. Jackie MacMullan writes on Brady's tough night.

2. Tables turn on defense. When the Ravens quickened the pace in the second half, the Patriots' defense didn't respond accordingly.

3. Welker's future with Patriots. James Walker, who covers the AFC East for ESPN.com, writes on Wes Welker's future with the club.

Thanks to all our readers for sticking with us. More to come as we wrap up the 2012 season.
