The New England Patriots have not had the toughest of all schedules so far. Mundane or mediocre are words that come to mind to describe it. But Thursday night was not one of the easier assignments that they have, due to the quick turnaround. Even against a depleted New York Giants team, that case can be made.
Nonetheless, they ended up increasing their record to 6-0 on the season with a comfortable-in-the-end 35-14 win. The Pats went up 14-0 to look downright dominant, but the Giants came back in the second quarter to tie the game. The Pats went up for good in the second quarter, as Tom Brady ran in with 36 ticks left. From there, they ran away with it, using four total turnovers to make up the difference in the end. Brady, who had an interception and two rushing TD’s, also was able to surpass Peyton Manning on the all-time passing yards list. He’s now second following a 334-yard showing.
