    Wow.. What a can of whoop-***** the Pats opened after the 1st quarter.

    Great job with the running game. Ridley is looking to be a steal from the 3rd round.

    WB Sterling Moore. Great to have you out there. Great instincts.. Good tackling.

    Antuan Molden went from goat to Hero with his game ending interception.

    Arrington got robbed. McCourty didn't hit a "defenseless" receiver. He didn't lead with any part of the helmet and hit the guy in the upper chest/shoulder area, not the head. That penalty should not nullify interceptions. The penalty should have been tacked on from the spot of the foul at worst.

    I wish we didn't have to wait for an update on McCourty.

    McCourty is fine. or didn't you see him run to the sidelines under his own power? It was a stinger.. nothing more..

    Winning is always great, but I hope the slow starts do not continue. Can't bank on double digit comebacks against actual good teams. Defense has got to make stops in the red zone like earlier in the season and do a better job keeping these games close.

    That said, the adjustments and ability to finish are once again encouraging.

    How did the injuries look, didn't catch what happened to Mccourty?

    Props to Ghost making the 47 yarder, that was a key one and could have hurt at that point had he not made it and Buffalo got the ball in good field position. Big kick.

    Hernandez back to speed, is that 3rd option after Gronk/Welker we've been waiting on. This offense will be so hard to stop.

    Only playcalling issue was the inability to score from 1st and goal on the 1. Only 1 rush, that was frustrating.

    Jets suck

    I did see him get off the field under his own power. I guess I'm just worrying.

    Was that the explanation? I was at a Bears bar with the only sound Bears sound and nobody could figure out what the BS penalty was for. Egregious.

    I hate what the Pats usually try to do in short yardage situations. Actually I hate what most teams try to do in 3rd and 1 situations.

    He intercepted the ball before the hit so I couldn't figure out why the interception was nullified.

    I was out so didn't see the game!

    But the box score shows a lot! Bad first quarter, and then the team thought 'f**k it!'

    Also, from the highlights of LawFirm's screen, and he looked faster than I have seen him in a long time, possibly ever!

    This team is making good adjustments and has plenty of fight.

    Well in Goodells NFL, the ref called it and McCourty will probably get fined for it....Disgusting.

    the score was 21-0 in the 1st quarter when I turned the game on. Figured it wasn't worth commenting at all during the game.

    Nice comeback and a win is a win, but it sure would be nice for the team to get off to a good start. I second those who say the Pats may not be able to overcome these types of deficits in the playoffs.

    They didn't actually GIVE an explanation. Just said that McCourty hit a defenseless receiver.

    Other notes:

    Brady with a franchise record 5,285 yards passing.
    Brady with his 300th career passing TD.
    Gronkowski with his 16th and 17th TD receptions on the year. (Team/NFL Records).
    Gronkowski with the NFL record for receiving yards by a TE.
    BJGE with his 10th and 11th Rushing TDs on the year.

    1st game in a while with the Pats getting 4 interceptions.

    Pats had 2 fumbles, luckily neither were recovered by Buffalo.

    Devin McCourty seemed to play quite a bit at Free Safety with Molden as one outside corner and Arrington as the other, though Arrington sat out a few series in the 4th with Moore on the field.

    For the 4th straight week and 6th time in last 8 games, the Pats defense held opponents to under 300 yards passing.

    It is also worth mentioning how well the special team and coverage units played today. Yes they gave up the early fake punt, but their coverage as of late has been really good. Sergio Brown has shown why he is on the roster. Lets just hope he maintains that level and doesnt see snaps at safety. But great effort for the special teams.

    Great way to recover and throttle the Bills after a disastrous 1st quarter. Credit TFB and the offense for getting their act together and shifting the momentum.

    But seeing the team come out flat at home yet again is worrisome. If they do it in two weeks against a good team they're probably one and done for a third straight year.

    Let's a playoff win first. We're going to need to play much better in the 1st half.

    So the poster isnt allowed to discuss setting a record for regular season wins until after winning a playoff game? What other rules am I not aware of?

    I was stating my thoughts going into the playoffs. If my post came across differently, I offer my apology to the poster and to you.

    That is amazing to me. In his 11 year tenure, he's surpassed Landry, Shula, and Walsh in terms of the number of 13 win seasons.

    No worries bro, I'm just so pumped about this team. Unlike last year who played so well and so much in front, this team has comeback many times and played through a lot of adversity. Hopefully we see a mentally tough team in these playoffs.

    I agree though, they gotta stop getting down by double digits so early!

    Hopefully everyone whos banged up gets healthier during the bye and the team is ready to go.

    Yup; they started 16-game seasons in '78, so you could make a case that Landry, Shula and Noll could be up there. But still -- doing it in 11 years is .. .wow. PLUS, only one other coach (Seifert) has FOUR 13-win seasons.

    EDIT: TO clarify, Belichick has five now. In 11 seasons.

    OK, it seemed you were saying shut up loser and win a playoff game.
    The negative crowd around here has taken up the rallying cry of 2 1st round losses as justification for every argument they make and as the basis of their opinion being the only valid one.

    I wonder if it would change the answer if you called it 3 or fewer losses rather than 13 or more wins?

    Understandable to be excited. That said, home feild hasn't meant much to us in the playoffs. Let's hope we can play a complete game in 2 weeks.

    McCourty had his eyes on the ball the entire play and ran into the WR by accident (that's why he was also shaken up on the play). A very poor call by the line judge.
