It was a squeaker there for awhile! As has been the case lately, the Patriots started slow in the first half but became more dominant in the second half. The defense is showing holes due to massive injuries so the offense has to carry the team, a reversal of the first half of the season. Julian Edelman and Gronk shone while James Devlin had a hard-driving touchdown where he never gave up! Shane Vereen shone! Kicker Steven Gostkowski was splendid, making two kicks over fifty yards. Tom was fantastic! :) The Patriots were not called for any penalties. Stevan Ridley was a healthy scratch because of fumbling issues.
The Patriots will not be a dominant team in the playoffs (defense way too shaky) and that could mean never reaching the Super Bowl, but they will fight hard.
Miami beat the Jets. Buffalo lost in OT to Atlanta.
