BALLS1. OL. What an outstanding job they did in taking away the Buffalo passrush and opening holes in the running game. Probably the most complete game they have had all day.2. RBs. Ridley and Bolden the first Patriots duo with 100 yards rushing each since the 1980s. They ran hard and without hesitation. Its nice having a running game.3. DL. Wilfork in particular, with a smaller shoutout to Jones. Wilfork was an absolute force and Jones was causing problems in the backfield again.Honorable Mentions - 1) Brady - probably his best game of the season. 2) The rookies (Jones, Hightower, and Wilson) all had impact plays again. 3) McCourty with the 2 INTs, but his support in run defense and tackling was much better again. 4) The LBs were rock solid, except some lapses in pass defense.GOATS1. Gostkowski for missing 2 field goals. 2. The receivers (Welker, Lloyd, and Gronkowski) for fumbling, dropping balls, etc. I know they ended up with good stats, but they made a ton of mistakes that could have been devastating. I felt like it was Moss all over again with Lloyd when Brady was trying to force passes his way.3. The safety play. Shout out all around to the CBs. The safeties had a really bad day.
