The New England Patriots got off to a fast start against the Indianapolis Colts. The Patriots took a 24-3 lead by the end of the first half and that was too much ground for the Colts to make up. Tom Brady threw for 341 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions in the win. One of those passes went to Josh Gordon on a deep ball throw and that was actually Bradyā€™s 500th career TD. Itā€™s been a long and illustrious run for the future Hall of Famer (Brady) and it doesnā€™t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Just ask Indianapolis because they struggled against the 41 year old quarterback. If thereā€™s any positive takeaway for Frank Reichā€™s team it was definitely Andrew Luck. The Colts quarterback threw the ball extremely well but they couldnā€™t overcome a slow start. By the end of the night Luck had thrown for 365 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions so he actually had better stats than Brady did. Eric Ebron was also very good in this contest he recorded 105 yards and caught two of Luckā€™s touchdowns passes. New England was led by Sony Michel, James White, and Josh Gordon. Michel set the tone with 98 rushing yards and 1 touchdown. White and Gordon both found the end zone too so it was a total group effort by the Patriots offense. Defensively New England got a huge boost from Patrick Chungā€™s strong performance. Chung had 8 tackles, 1 interception, and half a sack. Jonathan Jones also played well he went for 5 tackles and 1 interception. Malik Hooker was the top defender for the Colts. Hooker recorded 12 tackles in the loss. Matthias Farley also chipped in 6 tackles and 1 interception but ultimately New England came out on top. The Patriots are now 3-2 after winning straight two straight games. Which means theyā€™ll be right in the thick of things once the end of the season gets here.
