Here are ours:
1) LeGarrette Blount -- Breakout game for the big back. Blount's 334 total yards on the day, (189 rushing, 2 TDs, 145 KO returns) set new franchise record.
2) Steven Gostkowski -- Not a good weather day for kickers, yet Gostkowski nailed all four of his attempts and all three PATs. Set new franchise record of 158 points in a season.
3) Fans -- Hats off to the fans who showed up and stuck it out in horrible cold, wet conditions at Foxborough
Julian Edelman -- Wes Welker who? Over 100 receptions on the year and 1,000 yards. Completed 2-point conversion as well.
Pass rush -- though it wasn't always consistent, Patriots managed solid pressure on day, sacking Bills QB Thad Lewis four times
Offensive line -- Logan Mankins was injured, yet returned to finish the game. O-Line opened holes for Blount's record day. Brady was sacked just once.
1) Bad Weather -- It's december, this is when it's supposed to snow in New England. Rain dampened the day.
2) Tom Brady -- Not really deserving of a full Goat today, but Brady finished 14 of 24 for 122 yards (4.6 avg), 1 TD, 1 INT and a QB rating of 68.4. This was hardly stellar Tom Brady material. The ground game took a big load off Brady's shoulders.
3) Fumble Issues: -- Four fumbles on the day for Patriots. Team was fortunate they didn't lose any of them.
Raiders -- for letting the Broncos walk over them on way to top overall seed and new NFL scoring and passing records.
