Funny comment last night during the pre-game show. The MNF crew (who make me long for John Madden at this point) are discussing the Vikings defense. I believe Kornheiser said something akin to "The Vikings are going to try and take away the running game and put the ball in Tom Brady's hands."
On the opening drive the Patriots then march down the field and into the end zone while only running the ball once ,a quick handoff to Maroney that got stopped behind the line. Brady went six for six for 94 yards.
430 Yards, 4 Touchdowns in the air, 25 First downs.
All in all, a great game by the Patriots. Tom Brady looked like Tom Brady, Laurence Maroney is looking better and better everytime we see him and the defense played like the defense we know and love.
The only worrying thing was the number of penalties committed at the start of the game, but they hardly mattered.
And for the record, there were some terrible calls made against the Vikings.
