Report Card Time and it kind of says a lot about what we've seen over the last decade or so with this franchise that they can put up 45 points in 25 minutes and no one is really screaming about the fact that they put up 45 points in 25 minutes.

The challenge came down from coach Bill Belichick last week.



Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork made his weekly appearance on The Big Show Monday, discussing the team's 52-28 win over the Bills on Sunday and the challenges that are ahead for the team. 

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Monday that he still has faith in Stephen Gostkowski, a day after the kicker missed two field goals in the team's 52-28 win over the Bills. Gostkowski, who missed what would have been a game-winning 42-yarder in Week 2 against the Cardinals, missed kicks of 42 and 49 yards Sunday. 

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason checked in for his weekly visit with Dennis & Callahan on Monday morning to dissect the Patriots' 52-28 victory over the Bills that ended New England's two game losing streak.

"I would think that the Patriots defense in particular probably heard a lot of criticism last week because of their performance the week before, and just like I guess the Patriot Way is is to go out there and do something about it," Esiason said. "It was extremely impressive all the way around."

Making his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning, Tom Brady had a win to talk about for the first time in three weeks, as the Patriots pulled away in the second half for a 52-28 victory over the Bills on Sunday that evened their record at 2-2.

Patriots 52, Bills 28.

Call it The Redemption of Josh McDaniels.

Too soon? A bit much?

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- There was no panic, at least not in the Patriots’ defensive huddle.



ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Undrafted rookie free agent running back Brandon Bolden helped the Patriots make history Sunday in a 52-28 win over the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Ole Miss product gained 137 yards on just 16 carries and ran for his second touchdown in as many games, helping the Patriots notch a pair of 100-yard rushers for the first time in 32 years. Bolden and Stevan Ridley -- with 106 yards and two TDs on 22 carries -- were part of a Patriots rushing attack that gained 247 yards on 40 carries. 

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Vince Wilfork had a huge impact on Sunday's 52-28 Patriots win over the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium. 

The veteran defensive lineman tipped a passed that resulted in an interception, he recovered a fumble as the Bills were going in for a touchdown before the half and he demolished Bills wide receiver Donald Jones with a crushing hit over the middle as the Patriots used big hits and big defensive plays to turn the tide in the second half.
