A look at both the good and bad individual performances from the Patriots 52-21 win against the Buffalo Bills.

Devin McCourty – McCourty was all over the field during the contest. Blanketing receivers in coverage, as well as contributing in run support. Fun fact: the Patriots are now 9-0 all-time when Devin McCourty has an interception.
Brandon Spikes – I know it’s three up, but I’m cheating here. I couldn’t leave Brandon Spikes off of this list after a great performance Sunday afternoon. The linebacker delivered several huge hits and forced two fumbles.
Rob Gronkowski – No excuses for Gronkowski’s poor play. A fumble to go along with a few dropped passes. Just not what you’d expect from one of the best – if not the best – TE in NFL.
Stephen Gostkowski – The Pats kicker Missed two field goals of 49 and 42 yards in the contest. He has struggled this season.
Steve Gregory and Patrick Chung – The two safeties took poor angles throughout the game and really struggled to help New England’s cornerbacks. Donald Jones’ 68-yard touchdown catch sticks out.
