FOXBORO -- Stevie Johnson doesn't think the Patriots can cover him. He has recently said just as much. And even his quarterback, EJ Manuel, admitted such in a conference call on Wednesday.

When Manuel was asked if New England's defense could cover Johnson, Manuel quickly replied, "Stevie doesn't think so."

On Thursday, Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib was asked if Johnson had provided extra motivation, entering Sunday's Week 1 game in Buffalo.

Talib said he isn't even paying attention.

"I don't watch like NFL Network or read the newspapers during the season," said Talib after practice. "I'm a basketball fan, so my TV pretty much stay on NBA TV. I don't really read what nobody says.

"I didn't really read into it, so, I guess it is what it is."
