Ridley on postseason turnovers: 'Can't have it'

FOXBORO -- The Patriots practice ball security each and every week. But in a one-game season that is the NFL playoffs, there's no room for error.

So the Patriots understand the importance of holding onto the football and winning the turnover battle on Sunday against the Houston Texans.

Easiest way to do that? Don't turn it over.

"Can't have it, can't have it," said Patriots running back Stevan Ridley on Friday. "It's crunch time, man. And turnovers, however they come -- fumbles, interceptions, drops, whatever -- we can't have that.

"I don't want to be that guy that they're pointing the finger at, and saying, 'My bad.' I'm trying to play solid football and play perfect football."
