Best of Social Media: Week 6 Bengals vs PatriotsStew Milne - USA TODAY Sports

On Sunday, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady returned home for his first start at Gillette Stadium in 2016 and the Patriots Nation faithful made sure to let him know how much they appreciated him before kickoff.

A few old friends made an appearance on the field pregame.

Following kickoff, Brady was serenaded.

Just before the end of the first quarter, fans pulled off this wonderful card stunt for breast cancer awareness month.

After getting off to a rather slow start against the Bengals defense, Tom Brady engineered an efficient two minute drill just before halftime to give the Patriots a 10-7 lead.

Heading into the second half, former Patriot wide receiver Brandon LaFell helped the Bengals jump back in front.

It was a trend for the majority of the afternoon, the Patriots third down defense continued to struggle.

Stephen Gostkowski’s problems continued following a missed extra point.

Trailing 14-12 late in the third quarter, tight end Rob Gronkowski found the end zone for the first time in 2016.

Running back James White had a big afternoon, snatching his second touchdown of the game and Tom Brady’s third touchdown pass.

With the Patriots leading 25-17 with 11 minutes to go in the game, controversy erupted following this Vontaze Burfict low hit at Martellus Bennett’s knees that appeared to be a “cheap shot” to many observers.

Following the incident, some chirping began between Gronkowski, Burfict, and corner Adam Jones.

Gronkowski ultimately received a taunting penalty, but got the last laugh after having a career best 162 yards receiving with his seven catches.

Following a Dalton sack, Hightower showed off his air guitar skills.

With 1:55 to go in the game, LeGarrette Blount iced the game with a score putting the Patriots ahead 34-17 and Gronkowski doing a little disco celebration.

With the win, the Patriots moved to 5-1 on the season as they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers next Sunday.
