Trying to take the following bits of optimism: 1) The Pats played poorly, spotted Buffalo 7 and still won. That is the sign of a very good team. 2) Once again, Belichick showed he is the master of the halftime adjustments, and the team certainly responded with a great 2nd half. As someone else here said: I'd rather start poorly and finish strong than vice-versa. 3) No complaints about Gostkowski 4) AFAIK, it was an injury free game (meaning we didn't suffer any injuries; obviously there were some players we were missing). 5) Maroney certainly looked darn good..!!
