What We Learned from the Patriots 36 - 20 Win Over the Saints

The injury was later announced as a groin issue and he did not return. "With the success they've had over the staying power over this long period of time, generally you would have those kind of numbers, whether it's turnover-driven, whether it's how they play in the first half of games or the second half of games". Saints defenders twice caught Brady's passes, but both plays were wiped out by New Orleans penalties. The Patriots began the game with only three receivers before Chris Hogan limped through much of the afternoon and Phillip Dorsett was seen riding the stationary bike to loosen up his aching knee.

Well after Brady's performance against the Saints on Sunday, it seems safe to say the Patriots' quarterback is doing just fine, thank you very much. They were trying to figure out the right pecking order in a remixed running game and rediscover a passing identity.

"I think we can (turn it around)", linebacker A.J. Klein said. Brees has always been tough to beat at home in New Orleans and his quarterback rating is ten points higher in the Superdome over his career.

"Whatever situation calls for whatever back, then that's what we're going to roll with", Kamara said. He threw all three touchdowns in the first 15 minutes of the tilt, the first time in his career he's thrown for three scores in the first quarter of a game.

For the last 18 seasons, the mantras of the New England Patriots - drummed into them by head guru Bill Belichick - have been "next guy up" and "winning, not stats, is all that matters". It would be only one of many meetings that two would have down the road. Their 922 TD passes and 128,251 yards passing combined coming in represented the most in National Football League history by starting QBs the same game.

It was likely only because of New Orleans' taller receivers, but it's a situation worth monitoring after Butler struggled through the preseason and in Week 1. He's got the best attitude - it's team-first all the time. This was one of the keys going into the game as the Saints were missing both tackles due to injury.

Saints: Rookie CB Marshon Lattimore left the game to be evaluated for a concussion. One of their best players and unit leaders, Kenny Vaccaro, was benched midway through the second half because of his inconsistent play.

Also, the Patriots were without two key players. We always try to play well early and get off to a fast start.

The Patriots' decision to reload with Gillislee, Burkhead, Cooks and No. 2 tight end Dwayne Allen is paying off.

Prior to making his premature departure against the Saints, the 28-year-old produced six receptions for 116 yards and the aforementioned 53-yard score from quarterback Tom Brady.

At this point, the Saints at 0-2 should shock no one.
