I don't think any team can stop them once they get rolling like this.
Speaking of Gronk..do you think BB is going to chew him out over that unsportsman like conduct call?

Bill had a chat with him right after it happened. Gronk was also calling out Burfict for his dirty cheap shot on Bennett earlier in the game.

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.
Brady is plenty mobile "in the pocket"...I don't want my 39 year old QB "running for first downs"

If Brady can "look uncomfortable" while going 29-35 for 376 yards 3 TDs and 0 INT with a passer rating of 140 I hope he "looks uncomfortable" every week

Pittsburgh Sunday isn't going to be so tough with Ben on the bench and a defense that has looked soft...

He most likely will talk to him about playing within himself... "You are better than this, son.... "

Nice payback game for the Pats sticking it to the Bills

That wasn't Jacoby back there today....little bit too much for the Bills to handle but they did get to Brady a lot today, he doesn't get enough credit for his toughness

With all the tough talk from the Bills during the week I liked the tone setting hits from the defense, secondary and Hightower in particular were bringing it today

Gotta love conference games...

Bye comes at a good time get Bennett's ankle right and get the D tightened up...

Tom looked pretty darn good in the pocket when under pressure - several times he moved the pocket and made some big throws.

7-1 and heading into the bye. Things are looking pretty good for the Patriots. They have Seattle coming into Foxborough which is going to be a very tough game. Apart from Seattle, they have a favorable schedule heading into the huge road trip to Denver in week 15. There's a pretty good chance they could be 12-1 heading into the game with the Broncos.

Patriots just traded Jamie Collins to Cleveland for a Compensatory 3rd round pick.

I feel bad for Jamie, he goes from a team sitting at 7-1 and a good shot to make it to the Super Bowl to a team sitting at 0-8 and showing no signs of promise this season.

Bad trade. He's one of their most athletic players on the D.

But they weren't going to pay him, he turned down a 11 mil a year offer. Still, this a potentially SB winning team and this is a blow.

I could see Bill Belichek saying "any of you other fools wanna get paid? Remember what happened to Jamie!"

Shocker but too early to call it a bad trade...

Collins is talented but tends to freelance and give up big plays at times, none bigger than the 2 TD's up the seam in the AFC Championship Game

BB has done this before and probably feels he has enough talent that will play within the scheme to potentially improve the D this season

May not pan out but at this point for me its "In BB we trust"

He hasn't been wrong too many times in the last 16 years...
