                        Steve Gregory (28) had an amazing game last night against the Jets compiling an interception,  forced fumble, and fumble recovery for a touchdown. The New England Patriots shined in all aspects of the game on Thanksgiving, their offense marched all over the Jets defense, defensively they played their best game of the season, and their special teams dominated.  Overall this was clearly their best performance of the year and showed that this team is firing on all cylinders right now.  Tom Brady threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns, had one rushing touchdown, and again threw no interceptions.  Brady looks like the 2007 Tom Brady again, and could lead this team to another Super Bowl.  The addition of an affective running game also has greatly improved the team’s offense.  No longer is Brady going to drop back and throw 50 times every game.  Stevan Ridley is a quality back that is good for 80 plus yards and a touchdown every game, and Shane Vereen is a good number two, who can run hard and catch the ball out of the backfield. This balance has been vital to the explosiveness of the Pats offense, and is the reason the team scores 36 points a game. On defense, Vince Wilfork and Steve Gregory were the standouts last night, but the entire unit played really well.  Gregory had six tackles, an interception, a fumble recovery, and a forced fumble.  This was the first game that Gregory really stood out and played his best.  Hopefully he can continue to play this well along with the whole team.  Wilfork has been great all year, but he really played well yesterday.  He was a disruptive force on the line shutting down the Jets rushing attack and putting pressure on Mark Sanchez.  His best moment was when he pushed one the Jets offensive linemen into Sanchez causing a fumble that Gregory picked up and ran back for six points.  Brandon Spikes and Alfonso Dennard also had great games defensively. Some may say that the Jets gave the game to the Patriots, but I disagree.  Yes the played horribly, but the Patriots forced all the turnovers, hit hard which rattled the Jets, and executed on both sides of the ball.  As the bad as the Jets played, the Patriots played that well.  This was a statement win that everyone is the NFL is paying attention too.   Hopefully the Patriots continue this dominance and win another Super Bowl.
