There were some glitches on the Patriots's offensive side of the ball, starting the game with a three-and-out and the fill-in center snapping the ball before Brady was ready, but the Pats executed a fake punt after that three-and-out and the defense caused multiple turnovers. Gronk caught 2 TD passes from Tom and Rex Burkhead got two hard-won TDs, too. Ultimately Tom threw 4 TDs on the day.
Miami had a few chances to keep the game close because of some New England turnovers but kept shooting themselves in the foot. In the end the Pats were the Pats and the Dolphins were the Dolphins. :)
The Pats are currently the No. 1 playoff seed, but there's five weeks to go and a showdown in Pittsburgh on December 17th!
The Bills won and the Jets lost.
AFC EAST DIVISION
Next week the Patriots head to Buffalo to play the Bills.
