After dropping two games in a row, it was important for the Patriots to find a way to win in Buffalo. Queue up the passing game as Rob Gronkowski played a major hand in a win for his team with five receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown.
Another big game is on deck for New England as the Broncos and rival Peyton Manning come to town. With Aaron Hernandez down, look for Brady to lean on Gronkowski. He should have another top-notch performance.
What Did We Learn From Week Four?
- Antonio Gates has yet to find the end zone, but he did have a long reception of over 30 yards against the Chiefs. The Chargers' star tight end has had some bad luck early in the season as he battled a rib injury and in the past two weeks the Chargers have played in unbalanced scoring games—both good and bad. He should find the end zone against the Saints this week.
- Scott Chandler suffered a head injury against the Patriots, but before he was done for the day he had two touchdowns. Ryan Fitzpatrick’s favorite red-zone target, Chandler will have some productive games this year.
- Jermaine Gresham hasn’t put it together for a big game yet, but he’s come on in the past two weeks after a slow start because of a pre-season injury.
Sean’s Week Five Watch List
- Both Joel Dreessen and Jacob Tamme were active early on against the Raiders. I will be interested to see if they can step up against the Patriots this week.
