Patriots Report Card at the Halfway Point of the SeasonMatthew Emmons - USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots sitting at 8-0 and in great position as one of only two undefeated teams in the AFC and one of three in the league. So this is a good time to take stock of the performances so far in 2015 and give a grade and outlook moving forward by position.

Overall the Patriots and Bengals sit alone atop the AFC and if the season ended today would get a first round bye entering the playoffs. In the AFC East, much of the talk that the Patriots would be pushed hard for division by Miami, Buffalo and the Jets hasn’t materialized. The Patriots are a perfect 3-0 in the division having beaten every other team the first time thru the schedule

The Jets are 3+ games back at 5-3, Buffalo is 4-4 and Miami, which was thought to be a playoff contender sits in last place with a 3-5 record. Barring a disaster down the stretch, the Patriots are in great shape to repeat as division champions.

So here is the Report Card for the Patriots position by position starting with the Offense:
