A win is a win. When the Patriots win, there should be nothing to complain about when the best team in the National Football League continues to succeed. Congratulations to the Patriots on another win.

The offense tried to give it away late in the 4th, with what seemed to be three 3 and outs which took like a minute off the clock it seemed.............hated it! Luckily, the Pats came away with a victory, and thanks to the Colts "special" (yes, they were quite special) teams for that blunder of a play whiched helped the cause.

Just what was that silly play the Colts tried? Were they trying to make the Patriots foul? They are too smart for that (most of the time).

A win is a win but they had me worried at the end. I can't stand it when they appear to get soft and let the other team stay in it.
If Gronk hadn't recovered that onside kick this game could have ended different.

As usual The Patriots gave us an exciting game complete with Skill, Talent, Smarts and a Dash of Good Luck.

Yes. Apparently, the idea was either catch them with a misalignment, or get the Pats so discombobulated that there would be an illegal substitution or a 12 man penalty. According to Pagano, he thought the worst that would have happened to the Colts was a delay of game penalty. Where the "don't snap the ball" came into the plan or not is something that will probably be debated for quite a while.

Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano takes responsibility for failed fourth-down play

As they say though- you can't BS a BSer. I have an image in my head of Belichick patting Pagano on the head and saying, "better luck next time".

Congrats to the Pats on the win and moving to 5-0! While I'm still mad that the Pats beat my team 30-6 last week, I always like seeing the Pats play because they are a well coached team who operates like a well-oiled machine. Seeing their offense click is amazing sometimes.

And I only was able to watch the last half of the game last night. To think, I thought the defense (especially the secondary) was going to regress this year...and the Pats D did very well for the most part yesterday. Malcolm Butler is a beast.

Watched the game and too bad the WTF trick Colts play overshadowed what I as a newbie football thought was a pretty impressive play: Collins hurdling over the team to block the Colts kick. I mean the elves did it to the dwarves in five armies, but that was animation. This was real.

One can always hope I suppose. Thinking it'll be another good, close game though.

I honestly don't know who is going to beat this team. So much for that two game momentum and all the Dolphin hype. Instead all the Dolphins ended up being was a fish dinner on the Patriots plate.
