QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Chris works hard. He's one of our hardest workers. He's got good stamina, can practice and go all day. We have a lot of confidence in Chris and our entire offense. We need to be more productive in every area – points, running the ball, throwing the ball, after the catch, pretty much you name it. Ball security has been better the last couple of weeks, but we need more production." -- Bill Belichick, on Chris Hogan
