The New England Patriots put a hurt on the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11 at Gillette Stadium, winning by a score of 59-24.
Andrew Luck and the Colts got off to a hot start, going up 14-7 before the first quarter was up.
Then, Julian Edelman returned a punt 68 yards for a touchdown, and newly acquired cornerback Aqib Talib intercepted one of Luck's passes and ran it back 59 yards for a touchdown, putting the the Patriots on top for good.
Luck was roughed up quite a bit in this game, as he ended up throwing two more interceptions—one of which was returned 87 yards for a touchdown by fellow rookie Alfonzo Dennard. He finished the game with 334 yards and two touchdowns.
Rookie wide receiver T.Y. Hilton had a monster game in defeat, catching six passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns.
Tom Brady was brilliant in the win, throwing for 331 yards and three touchdowns.
Edelman finished the game with 117 yards on two punt returns and one rush for 47 yards.
Rob Gronkowski was the most dominating player on offense for the Patriots. He caught seven passes for 137 yards and two touchdowns.
The Patriots improved to 7-3 on the season and will travel to face the New York Jets on Thanksgiving night, while the Colts fell to 6-4 and will host the Buffalo Bills next Sunday.
