34-13. I dont know the exact definition of a blow out, but Im defining that as a blowout.
If Tom Brady had any balls, he would have walked up to the podium for his post game press conference, yawned and walked away. Seriously, the Patriots have the "easiest" schedule in the NFL and if this is what its going to be like every week, then I am going to have a pants tent for the next 16 weeks.
Anyway, about the game. Was there any doubt that the tight ends were going to play a big role? Rob Gronkowski had 6 catches for 60 yards and a touchdown. Aaron Hernandez had 6 catches for 59 yards and a touchdown. As expected.
Brandon Lloyd has played one game as a Patriot and he has already contributed more than Ochocinco did the entire 2011 season. The dude led the Patriots with 69 yards on five catches.
And I dont care if you have a friggin crystal ball, no one saw Steven Ridley getting the ball 21 times and running for 125 yards. And if you did, Ill give you a dollar and you have to go buy me a lottery ticket.
If I get hit by a truck tomorrow I will still consider this a good week because of what I saw on Sunday. Shit, kid. That is exactly what I needed. Total friggin sportsgasm.
