Nora Princiotti of the Boston Globe has a day to remember for J.C. Jackson with two interceptions and a blocked punt. The second-year corner continues to ascend.

Tara Sullivan of the Boston Globe focuses on a resilient Tom Brady, doing enough to win the game when the Pats offense was far from their best.

Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald has the Patriots defense rising to the occasion against the Bills in a game where they had a thin margin of error.

Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal has the NFL seeing no reason for Jonathan Jones to have been ejected after his hit on Josh Allen.

Daniels also has Matthew Slater's touchdown being a dream come true for the long-time veteran who is in his 12th season.

Jeff Howe of The Athletic says the Patriots defense is now a bunch of savages who heard some of the pregame chatter from Buffalo.

Nick Underhill of The Athletic likes that the Patriots are undefeated but that there's still a lot of work to be done.

Phil Perry takes a deep dive into Dante Scarnecchia's School for Offensive Linemen. Great read on a fascinating coach!

Perry also takes a deeper look at the Patriots punt block and how the team spotted the weakness earlier in the week and were able to exploit it in the game.

Michael DelPrisco relays Matt Cassel's story about playing in 60 MPH winds in 2008 in Buffalo. Cassel's addition to the Boston media lineup has been fantastic!

Tom E. Curran has the Pats offense lacking but that they're still great in their team totality.

“That’s football, right? Anytime you get that, it gives me chills thinking about it because that’s football at its core right there – one on one, you know they’re trying to run the ball. We know they’re running the ball. You’ve got to stand up." Kyle Van Noy on the Patriots goal line stand vs. Bills
