I can't remember the last time I saw a pathetic snap to a not ready Brady (yeah, I know, center still has NFL diapers on). Brady fumbled a snap.

But Cooks just looks SO good. And 7 sacks. And 9-2.

I'm hoping at worst the Pats/Steelers will be tied going into the game in Pittsburgh where we can take away their #1 AFC seeding.
I'm still pissed...that early whistle killed an obvious fumble recovery for a TD

Solid division game win for Pats today.

D has been incredibly impressive in this streak, all since Hightower went down...

Can't believe someone wanted to "put a fork in them" when Hightower went out..

Most complete team in the AFC and it isn't even close for 2nd place.

14 straight road wins for the Patriots. 15th straight season with at least 10 wins. Hopefully they can get some help from Cincinnati tomorrow night to take sole possession of first place in the AFC.

Definitely disappointed in Gronk, despite the fact on that play (and others), I saw at least two penalties on the Bills D. And still frustrated with the Pats inability to finish in the red zone. But 10-2 is pretty darn good!!

Gronk apologized to #27 for the Bills during his interview, he said he let the emotions get to him. Was frustrated the way that play went down, thinking that should've been a defensive flag there. That, and how he keeps getting those ticky tack push off calls against him, he just lost it briefly out there. Still no excuse though.....but he at least apologized.

What's a fair punishment for this crime? I couldn't believe it when I saw this replay. Watching it live and the replays they showed on the broadcast I thought he got him in the middle of the back. This is much worst. Thank God it's only a concussion. Could have easily been worse.

Pretty bad. First time i have seen if from this angle and it looks worse.. ugh.
I would guess 2 games, appealed down to 1 game.

Gronk is one of the NFL's darling (personalities)...he needs to realize this and do a better job of keeping his cool.

It has to be at least multiple games IMO, and without ability to appeal down to one. I'll be pretty upset if it's just a one game suspension in the end.

He's going to be suspended for 1 game (I bet) and that's a fair punishment. Stupid move by Gronk - I am sure Bill let him know just how stupid it was after the game.

The above happened a few weeks back. The NFL probably went to light on Evans but that's neither here nor there. Evans was suspended one game. It's a pretty malicious hit as well with the biggest difference being that Gronk's specifically targeted a players head. And in the age of CTE that's a big no-no.

Also making the situations different is that White was concussed on the play. He may or not play the following week. Lattimore was not injured. When something like this happens the player at fault should serve a suspension at least as long as the injured player is out plus one game.
