A couple of key moments led to another disappointing finish for the Patriots
Welker, Mankins Will Miss Pro Bowl
John Fox and his staff will have some more familiar faces at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii this weekend. Zane Beadles and Demaryius Thomas have each been picked to the AFC squad.
Thomas replaces Wes Welker and Beadles replaces Logan Mankins. The Patriots players withdrew Monday due to injuries.
Thomas and Beadles join teammates Peyton Manning, Von Miller, Elvis Dumervil and Champ Bailey in the game. Left tackle Ryan Clady was chosen to start but will sit out because of a shoulder injury.
Thomas had 1,434 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns. Beadles played every snap on offense and allowed one sack.
