Patriots activate Brandon Bolden

FOXBORO -- His four-game suspension for PED use complete, and recovered from the knee injury that sidelined him for the two games prior to his banishment, Brandon Bolden was added to the Patriots' 53-man roster for Monday night's game against the Texans.

Bolden, 22, joined the Patriots as a rookie free agent from Mississippi on May 10, 2012. He played in the first six games and had 43 rushing attempts for 234 yards with two touchdowns and has two receptions for 11 yards this year. Bolden finished with 16 carries for 137 yards for an 8.6-yard average in the Patriots 52-28 win at Buffalo on Sept. 30.

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
