Best of Social Media: Week 5 Patriots vs BrownsThomas J. Russo - USA TODAY Sports

When the New England Patriots arrived in Cleveland for Week 5 of the regular season, it marked not only the return of quarterback and leader Tom Brady, but a homecoming of sorts for wide receiver and Kent State University graduate Julian Edelman.

After going 3-1 without Brady, the Patriots were looking to get back on track with a win against the win-less Browns.

Defensive end Jabaal Sheard chose an interesting way to wear a Brady jersey.

His brother and law, and former Red Sox Kevin Youkilis tweeted out his support before the game.

What became noticeable right away was the enormous support of Patriots Nation on the road in attendance.

The Brady family was ready to go.

Brady to Gronk is back!

Yeah, Brady’s first drive showed little rust.

Martellus Bennett was walking all over the Browns defense on Sunday, a career high three touchdown receptions.

But the spikes could use a little work.

Dont’a Hightower sent Browns rookie Quarterback Cody Kessler into last week, he would leave the game following this safety.

Poor…poor Browns.

Enter, Clipboard Jesus!

Double team Gronk, no problem.

Probably for the best.

“They just aren’t good anymore.”

Despite the Patriots rolling right along into a halftime, kicker Stephen Gostkowski continued to battle a case of the shank, causing more panic something is wrong.

FLEX ON EM!

Martellus Bennett won people a lot of fantasy football games.

Now that’s a legal victory.

It was safe to say Brady had an immediate impact on the season.

Gillette Stadium Great Lakes.

With the 33-13 victory the Patriots move to 4-1 on the season and return home to play the Cincinnati Bengals at 1pm on Sunday, take it away TB Times.

Following the game, head coach Bill Belichick had the team buses stop in front of the statue of Jim Brown to pay tribute and appreciation to the Hall of Famer. When asked about the stop, Belichick had this to say during his monday morning conference call;

“That statue was recently put there, it’s kind of remarkable that it hadn’t happened sooner, but regardless I’m not sure how many of our players really understand or appreciate what he meant to the game and what he has meant to the game through his continued involvement,” Belichick then said, “That’s why we did it and I’m glad they appreciated it. Hopefully that’s something as part of their football career will be one small memory, is just the recognition of a great player and a great person and somebody who’s really made the game better for all of us.”
