07:22 AM ET 11.25 | Stevan Ridley is wearing a target, of sorts, in that his reputation is as a fumble machine. It didn't take long for the same problem to resurface, which put [Ridley] in the same spot: in the doghouse, and on the bench. Ridley, who came into Sunday night's game against the Broncos having lost three fumbles, lost another on the Patriots' first series, which started a lowlight tape tailor-made for the "Football Follies" put together by NFL Films. ... Ridley lost a fumble in the season opener against the Bills, which was also returned for a touchdown. He lost a fumble in the home game against the Steelers, but came right back on the next series. But when he lost another fumble, last Monday against the Panthers, Ridley sat for 18 offensive snaps. This time, he stayed on the bench for the remainder of the game.

Do your history lesson on Ridley. It didn't matter if it was 80 degrees in the sun, the guy is just a fumbler.

Perhaps he should have Tiki as his personal trainer.

Cold? What cold? Ridley was warm as, uh, toast.

It's too bad because he really is a productive running back when he does hold onto the ball.

Great comeback by the Pats.

They usually adjust well at halftime.

It looks like part of that adjustment was sitting Ridley.
