FOXBORO (CBS) – In his first year with the New England, Andre Carter just got his first taste of the Patriots-Jets rivalry.

Carter, a former Washington Redskin, was used to calling the Dallas Cowboys his rival. Now he gets another chance on Sunday.

Carter has knowledge of everything Dallas.  Twice a year, the Washington-Dallas rivalry reached a fever pitch.  But now that he’s with the Patriots, Andre looks at the bigger picture.

“Everybody always asks me, being a Washington Redskin and having been in that battle, is that kind of rivalry still in me?” said Carter. “I think my mentality now that I am a Patriot, I think that every week you just have to have that same [even-keeled] mentality, whoever you go up against.”

Carter knows the problems Tony Romo can present especially on broken plays.  He says you have to play the Dallas QB to the whistle.

“He’s an allusive quarterback. he’s wild, he takes chances, but for the most part he’s been successful,” said Carter of Romo. ” He just has that ‘comeback kid’ mentality, especially when it comes down to the wire in the fourth quarter.”

As far as the New England defense, he believes they are getting better but still a ways to go.

“We’re still learning, just like every other team is still learning,” said Carter. “We have to continue to be hungry and strive for perfection. Each week is a challenge, but we can constantly get better.”
