Why Is The New England Patriots Still No. 1?

Why Is The New England Patriots Still No. 1?

The Bills' defense had a nice four-game stretch that helped to 61 points this year, but have been un-productive the past two games.

-COACHING: A - Bill Belichick and his staff guided the team through a month of football without Brady while winning three of four games played behind Garoppolo and Brissett.

-Julian Edelman scored on a screen play from 12 yards out that was set up by a 73-yard kick return by Danny Amendola on the second half kickoff that he took to the Buffalo 24.

"But, hopefully, I'll get back there because I know I'm needed there as well", Alexander said.

Although Buffalo's defense has performed admiringly through the better part of the season, one aspect they can improve on moving forward is their play on third down.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, right, hugs Chris Hogan after Hogan's touchdown during Sunday's win over the Buffalo Bills. The Lions were beaten 26 times by Brett Favre.

Playing his first game in Foxborough since the end of his "Deflategate" suspension, Brady had three touchdown passes and went over 5,000 completions for his career, and the Patriots beat the Cincinnati Bengals 35-17 on Sunday.

Israel to recall ambassador to UNESCO to protest holy site decision
Said Bokova, "To deny, hide or erase any of the Jewish, Christian or Muslim traditions undermines the integrity of the site". It is the holiest site in Judaism and the third holiest in Islam, after Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.


"From getting the call in, getting it communicated to everybody ..." "I mean, that's Pop Warner-type stuff". Gronk got free over the middle and hauled in a 4-yard catch that put the Patriots up 19-14 after Stephen Gostkowski's extra point. I don't think any team will be, when you lose your top four wide receivers, I think every team would be affected by it. When you look at, why the difference? Brady is the greatest quarterback that's ever lived, and it's not even close.

Colin Cowherd thinks there's no one in Tom Brady's league anymore.

Guess what happened? Gronkowski ran down the seam with Robey-Coleman unable to get leverage against a man 100 pounds heavier yet still able to run with speed. I was scoring touchdowns, I was blocking, doing all the little things that receivers don't do in today's game.

-PASS DEFENSE: C - The Patriots own a middle-of-the-pack pass defense by most measures. Granted, he notes that there may have been a communication issue, but this statement seems to indicate that the head coach feels as if Gilmore should have been in better position to make a play on the long pass. If Buffalo pulls off the upset, they'll have swept the NFC West.

"You know, they like to talk all that".

Following two consecutive losses, you'd expect the Buffalo Bills to fall in various power rankings. It was the first time that Brady and Gronk have connected for a TD this season. We know we can drop about two more games if you want to try and get into the playoffs. Wayne asked to be released by the team before the start of the regular season, and the Patriots obliged. "Three, something like that, so I don't see that changing", Ryan said. I'm just laying out the facts.
