Best Of Social Media: Week 5 Colts vs PatriotsStew Milne - USA TODAY Sports

Coming off a short week, the New England Patriots entered Thursday nights matchup with the Indianapolis Colts seeking to continue their dominance over their rivals and get back above .500  on the season.

The Colts came into the game winless in their last seven meetings against their AFC rivals, losing by an average of 19 points per game.

In the first quarter, Tom Brady wasted no time getting his favorite target involved for the first time since Super Bowl LI as Julian Edelman hauled in the first pass of the night.

Brady found Cordarrelle Patterson for the second week in a row to put the Patriots on the board first at 7-0 after one quarter.

For the second straight week, the Patriots pash rush came out strong, getting in Colts quarterback Andrew Luck’s face and causing disruptions early.

In the second quarter, the trademark “Brady Leap” touchdown made its first appearance in four seasons as the Patriots jumped out to a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter.

After a Colts field goal to cut the deficit to 14-3, the Patriots under two-minute scoring came through again as Brady found James White to extend the lead to 21-3 with 1:34 to go in the half.

The defense continued to make plays as Patrick Chung recorded an interception of Luck that led to a Stephen Gostkowski 45-yard field goal to bump the Patriots lead to 24-3 at halftime.

Chung’s celebration after the pick may have been more memorable.

In the second half, tight end Rob Gronkowski continued to re-write the Patriots record books.

In the third quarter, the Patriots struggled with some ugly drops that led to Colts interceptions.

The Colts would cash in on one of them as Luck found his tight end Eric Ebron to cut the lead to 24-10 at the 9:40 mark of the third quarter.

Needing to regain momentum, Devin McCourty delivered with a familiar play.

The Colts made things interesting to start the fourth quarter when Luck found Eric Swoop for another score to make it a seven point game at 24-17.

Needing to reclaim control, enter Josh “Flash” Gordon.

For the first time in his Patriots career, Josh Gordon put the Patriots back ahead two scores with an incredible “Moss-Like” catch that brought the lead back up to 31-17. The touchdown was Brady’s 500th for his career.

Leading by two scores, the Patriots defense stepped up again, with Jonathan Jones snatching a pick.

The interception would lead to a Sony Michel game sealing 34-yard touchdown run to put the Patriots up 38-17.

A garbage time Eric Ebron touchdown made the score 38-24, but the Patriots would walk away with their eighth consecutive win over the Colts and move to 3-2 on the season. A date with the 4-0 Kansas City Chiefs awaits them Sunday night October 14th.
