ORLANDO -- The Patriots and Broncos have seemingly been in a tit-for-tat competition over the past 12 months.

Broncos GM John Elway agreed it was an arms race recently.

Robert Kraft, asked Monday at the owners meetings about the personnel and personal competition, answered, "When I bought the team, I was thinking 'We could never really beat the Dolphins.' I mean, for years, they beat us. We were able to transition and do OK against the Dolphins. Then, with the Broncos . . . for about 15 years, we couldn't beat them. It looks like we've held our own. But it is a tremendous rivalry.

"We're happy that they're going to have to come to Foxboro this year -- I''m hoping it's in November or December. But we'll see," Kraft added. "I guess the schedule will be coming out in a couple of weeks."

Kraft then veered off to sideswipe the Jets.

"It's great for the game -- the rivalry we have with the Jets … it's unbelievable. I see little young children running around here coming up and telling me how they feel about the Jets. That's awesome. We're getting them ingrained at a young age."
