FOXBORO -- Amidst the Patriots offensive problems on Sunday was a fourth-quarter pass play intended for offensive tackle Nate Solder.

Tom Brady attempted a play-action pass to Solder on 2nd-and-goal while trailing by 10, and Solder could not get open enough to catch the pass.

"I didn't really know how to handle it," said Solder on the contact he received while running the route. "I just kind of ran the route, what they told me, and it didn't work out.

"It's been a long time since I've been a tight end, and I think I'm more of a tackle now, for sure."
