Branch helping Patriots any way possible

Posted: Updated:


Albany's Deion Branch has played in three Super Bowls with the New England Patriots.

Winning the game MVP award in Jacksonville eight years ago.

Branch is looking for one more ring in what may be his final NFL season. 

The New England Patriots will host Houston in the AFC divisional playoffs this weekend.

The Patriots routed the Texans during a regular season meeting game in New England one month ago.

Deion Branch watched that game from his home but was back with the Patriots after Donte Stallworth injured a foot in that New England win.

The former Louisville Cardinal may no longer be Tom Brady's go to receiver but Deion Branch is ready to use his leadership skills to help the Patriots get back to the Super Bowl.

"I think it is all about now getting focused. Getting in tune right now in the meeting rooms and our walkthroughs. Carry it over to the practice field. Once the guys see the sense of urgency that the veteran guys are putting on the football field. The guys who have been a part of it. They just fall right in," said Deion Branch.

New England will host Houston at 4:30 p.m. Sunday in the AFC Divisional playoffs.
