What a crazy game! The first half was one of those oddball games where the Patriots dominated but because of turnovers (the name of the game!) they ended up trailing 14-7 at the half. Steven Gostkowski missed two field goals and the offense missed opportunities left and right. The defense kept them alive.
Since I’m a
Tommy was not only INT-free, he scored a rushing touchdown! Another rare bird. ;) And Danny Woodhead got a receiving touchdown after a scramble by Tom. The quadruple-100s happened in a single game for the first time since 1982. Five hundred-and-eighty yards were scored by the Pats. Six touchdowns in the second half! Every time they had the ball, they scored after the first nothing possession.
Not all was wine ‘n’ roses. The secondary was a sieve at times and that spells danger down the line if they can’t correct it. Buffalo took advantage of turnovers in the first half and could have crushed the Pats and ended up 3-1 in the division, but now they’re tied with the Pats at 2-2. I don’t know if the Jets won, but if they lost they are 2-2, otherwise 3-1. I think Miami is on a bye week because I didn’t hear them mentioned all day. They would remain at 1-2.
Next week, the Denver Broncos come to town. Another Brady-Manning face-off! ;)
