Best of Social Media: Week 13 Rams vs PatriotsWinslow Townson - USA TODAY Sports

Heading into their Week 13 match up with the Los Angeles Rams, the New England Patriots were seeking their 14th consecutive 10-win season and one step closer to locking up another AFC East title.

The Patriots received the ball first to open up the game, and not even four minutes into the first quarter they jumped out to an early 7-0 lead following LeGarrette Blount’s longest run of the season, on fourth down no less.

After one quarter of play, the Patriots still lead 7-0.

The Patriots had the ball to open the second quarter, and Brady drove the Patriots down inside the Rams 20 yard line setting up this beautiful tip-toe touchdown by Chris Hogan.

The Patriots defense smothered Rams rookie quarterback Jared Goff as cornerback Logan Ryan recorded his first sack since 2013.

Another week of questionable NFL officiating following this controversial facemask non-call.

FOX Cameras captured this Matt Patricia twin in the Gillette Stadium stands.

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski would tack on a 28-yard field goal and the Patriots went into halftime with a 17-0 lead.

In honor of the Patriots 15th anniversary of the 2001 Super Bowl XXXVI championship, members of the team returned to Foxboro for a special halftime ceremony.

With the second half underway, the game didn’t get any easier for Rams head coach Jeff Fisher. Seeking to challenge a catch, he struggled to find his red flag buried within his coat.

Fisher would ultimately win the challenge, but it would only lead to a field goal. Rams still trailed 17-3.

The Patriots would get the ball back, and “Minitron” Julian Edelman hauled in this 32 yard pass from Brady following an incredible dodge of the pass rush.

It was a long afternoon for the Rams.

In the fourth quarter the Patriots were unable to find the end zone, but kicker Stephen Gostkowski had a terrific performance making all four field goal attempts, three of them from over 45 yards.

The Rams would tack on a garbage time touchdown with under four minutes to play but the Patriots would walk away with their tenth win of the season by a final score of 26-10.

Career victory number 201 for quarterback Tom Brady, the most all-time.
