Arrington takes on heavy dose of work with success

New England Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington had to guard Indianapolis Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton throughout the AFC Championship while the Pats' normal No. 2 corner, Brandon Browner, shadowed tight end Coby Fleener.

That matchup allowed the normal slot DB Arrington to take on a heavy dose of work, which he completed successfully. Hilton caught just one pass.

According to ESPN Boston, Arrington played every defensive snap in the victory--a major boost in playing time after seeing the field on just 40 percent of the team's defensive snaps during the regular season.
