Breaking the down the Pats at cornerback

Chris Price of WEEI.com joins Gary Tanguay on "Uno SportsTonight" from Pats training camp, and they're talking cornerbacks.

Much is expected from second-year corner Ras-I Dowling, who started the season opener as rookie last year then was hurt.

"We didn't see much of him at all," Price said, pointing out that Dowling has a size advantage over the Pats other cornerbacks.

"He's over 6 feet," Price said, "and brings an extra dimension because of it."

As for second-year corner Devin McCourty, Price says: "He wasn't as good as he was a rookie or as bad as he was as a second-year player. I think the difference is somewhere in between."

And Kyle Arrington is best suited as a slot corner, says Price. That's where he's been the majority of the early practices in camp.

Some Patriots kneel, others stand and link arms during national anthem

FOXBORO -- The Patriots took different approaches as the National Anthem played on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Many, including safety and captain Devin McCourty, took a knee. Others stood and linked arms. 

On the opposite sideline, it appeared as though every member of the Texans stood on the sidelines and linked arms. 

Those joining McCourty on a knee included Stephon Gilmore, Malcolm Butler, Lawrence Guy, Johnson Bademosi, Alan Branch, Brandon King, Malcom Brown and rookies Deatrich Wise and Adam Butler. 

Among those linking arms were Tom Brady, Phillip Dorsett, Cassius Marsh, Matthew Slater, David Harris and Dwayne Allen.
