Best Of Social Media: Week 11 Patriots vs RaidersGreg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

Heading into their matchup in Mexico City with the Oakland Raiders, the Patriots were seeking their eighth win of 2017 and some separation in the AFC East as the final stretch of the season began.

In the first quarter the Patriots owned time of possession early, as Dion Lewis found the end zone to put the team up 7-0 after one.

Quarterback Tom Brady was red hot to open the game, with a perfect 12 for 12 on completions.

The defense continued its rebound, as cornerback Duron Harmon kept the Raiders from answering with an interception.

7-0 Patriots after a quarter.

In the second, Brady continued to attack the Raiders secondary as he connected with Brandin Cooks deep to setup the Patriots second touchdown of the game.

On third and goal, the usually clutch Danny Amendola came up big again, and it was 14-0 Patriots midway through the second.

Just before halftime, it appeared the Raiders were going to get back in the game, but the Patriots defense had other ideas in the red zone.

Despite under a minute to play in the half, Tom Brady’s offense continued to find ways to swipe points before time ran out. The high altitude of “Estadio Azteca” turned out to be kicker Stephen Gostkowski’s ally.

Heading into halftime, the Patriots found themselves up a commanding 3 possession lead at 17-0.

Getting the ball to start the third quarter, Brady again found Cooks deep, a 64 yard bomb to the end zone and a 24-0 lead.

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski continued his big day and kicked two more field goals from 40 and 51 to extend the lead to 30-0 after three quarters.

In the fourth, Brady earned an early exit as Brian Hoyer took over for the remainder of the game. The Raiders would get a garbage time touchdown from Amari Cooper and a two point conversion to spoil the shutout, but Gostkowski’s fourth field goal of the game capped off the blowout 33-8 victory in Mexico.
