New England Patriots acquired wide receiver Josh Gordon from the Cleveland Browns in mid-September and thy put put his locker next to quarterback Tom Brady's.
Gordon said widespread leadership in the locker room has helped him "follow suit" since he has been in New England, which naturally includes Brady.
Gordon has played in nine games with the Patriots, starting all of them.
He has totaled 34 receptions for 605 yards and 3 touchdowns, and now has a chance to be part of a division-winning team for the first time Sunday if the Patriots (9-3) beat the Miami Dolphins (6-6) in South Florida.
The Patriot way is the only way.
