There are various types of games teams partake in. There are close games (Atlanta vs Carolina), there are blowout games (49ers vs Jets) and there are games which require a team to rise above adversity and flash who they really are.

New England has always been potent, but since their last Superbowl win against the Eagles all those years ago, their legacy is ripe with futile firepower. The Patriots’ offense is as dangerous as it ever was. Tom Brady gets statistically better every season. The two tight end attack, allied with multiple wideout strikes fear into every defence that stands in their way. The defense is young and always improving, rounded off by a head coach that will live on in history. The New Patriots are just one of those teams that you don’t want to face,especially when they can pull off dominant comebacks.

Against the Bills on Sunday in Buffalo, New England went up early with after a long drive ending in a Stevan Ridley touchdown. Ridley’s contribution to the offense has given New England an extra dimension, and helped to balance the usually trigger happy offense. However he was helpless to prevent two Ryan Fitzpatrick scoring drives, throwing two touchdowns both to Scott Chandler.

Buffalo continued to pile on the pressure with Fitzpatrick throwing another touchdown. The Patriots’ predicament proved to be Buffalo’s undoing as Brady and his team went to work to right the wrongs of the first half. The Patriots then scored five unanswered touchdowns with Rob Gronkowski and Danny Woodhead through the air and Brady, Brandon Bolden and Ridley on the ground. Fitzpatrick tried to rally by throwing his fourth TD of the day but New England punished his attempt by scoring a further ten points to end the game 52-28.

The Patriots played one of the most complete games this season with two rushers going over 100 yards, two wideouts going over 100 yards and a defense that recorded 4 interceptions and 3 sacks. This game remarkably put the Patriots into first in the AFC East with a 2-2 record. A loss may have condemned New England into the ranks of the doomed, but their dominant comeback has firmly put them in the ranks of the contenders.
