Yah! Instead of losing 44-7, the Colts would've only lost 34-17 with regulation-sized balls! The Colts got manhandled that game and it never should've been an issue. Not a Pats fan either, but if this was a team like the Steelers that did it, that didn't caught spying a decade earlier, it really would have been a non-issue.

Well that went about as well as could be expected

This offense is going to be something special....double Gronk and Bennett will kill you...and Brady looked great on down the field throws to Hogan and Gronk..

Dion Lewis back in two weeks and this offense will be unstoppable..

Tom looked pretty darn good out there. The big test of this team is coming in two weeks when they make a trip out to Pittsburgh. If they can head into the bye week at 7-1, or 6-2 then that should set them up for a nice run in the second half of the season.

I think it's worth considering that when the postseason in January rolls around, Tom Brady will have four fewer game's worth of wear and tear on him than most other NFL players. He'll be a quarter of a season fresher. An NFL campaign is a long grind that takes a toll.

Brady just might have an edge this postseason ... due to Roger Goodell.

I think the Patriots are happy to have Tom Brady back. Things are a lot better off with him because last week they played horribly against Buffalo at home. Now that Brady is back they will play better this time.

Brady's back? It's like he never left. It was great watching his surgical precision yesterday, and I think it's the best I've seen him consistently throw a long ball in a game in his entire career. Amazing what a 39 year older looked like after a month off. Although Buffalo is only a game behind, what I saw yesterday should pretty much put fear in the rest of the league's defenses.

Gronk and Bennett are just a ridiculous mismatch for teams...

I think the Bengals were statistically the BEST defense against TE's coming into the game and what those 2 did in the 2nd half was just nasty....

I don't think any team can stop them once they get rolling like this.

This was hardly a perfect or dominating performance. The Hightower safety in the 3rd quarter really seemed to jump start the team.

At times Brady looked uncomfortable with pressure coming - if he were a bit more mobile then he could have easily ran for some first downs.

In any event it was a good win and it gets them to 5-1 and in a good spot for a tough string of upcoming games. At Pittsburgh on Sunday is going to be a tough game.
