On "Patriots Football Weekly," Paul Perillo said he was somewhat pleased with the Patriots pass rush against the Jets, which included a couple of sacks by Chandler Jones.

Still, what really intrigued Perillo about the pass rush was the sack by Michael Buchanan, a seventh-round pick out of Illinois. It was kind of a coverage sack, but it brought to light what could be a key role for Buchanan.

"He could be the kind of guy they're looking for," Perillo said. "A sub rusher to come in, a guy with one specialty and that's get to the quarterback."

The rookie situational pass-rusher "is a guy I'm really intrigued by," Perillo said.
