It was a drubbing by the Patriots over the Colts! At first the Colts were staying right with them as rookie QB Andrew Luck looked impressive, but he started to get jittery after the first interception and unravelled a bit after that. Gronk had two TDs, the first tight end to get at least 10 touchdowns three straight seasons. Shane Vereen got into the end zone and the offense was really smokin’!
And, lo and behold, despite some shredding by Luck of the secondary, the defense came up big! Welcome, Aqib Talib! Our new cornerback snagged an interception and ran it back for a TD in his first game as a Patriot!
Julian Edelman had a monster day as he ran a kick-off back for a touchdown and ran in the end zone after a beautiful pass by Tom. He was all over the place, running around like a man possessed!
Sadly, Gronk was injured late in the game and had surgery today for a broken forearm. He should be back in time for the playoffs, though.
The Jets won yesterday so they’re 4-6 while the Pats lead the division at 7-3 and they meet again in four days on Thanksgiving!
See you on Turkey Day! ;)
