Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy made himself the biggest story of the week leading into the Patriots’ Week 5 matchup in Dallas.

ARLINGTON — As soon as Sunday’s 30-6 dispatch of the injury-depleted Cowboys was in the books and just before the team plane headed back to New England, the questions began.

How much will the Patriots be juiced up this week to play the Colts after their general manager Ryan Grigson lit a match and started the Deflategate inferno?

ARLINGTON — Apparently Dion Lewis has been taking his cues from Tom Brady.

Although the Patriots rolled to a 30-6 win over the Cowboys in Dallas for their fourth straight win to open the season, the win may have came with a cost.

The team had two key contributors leave the game and not return, while having another get banged up during the game.

For much of the first half of the Patriots’ 30-6 win over the Cowboys Sunday, something didn’t seem right.

What had been a juggernaut of an offense was not only being held to just one touchdown in the first two quarters, but Tom Brady was under constant pressure from the Dallas defensive front.

In the first half of Sunday’s 30-6 win over the Cowboys, Tom Brady was sacked five times, the most he’s ever been sacked in a half in his career, but that didn’t matter as Brady and the Patriots scored 17 points in the second half and rolled to a 24-point win.

Take that, Dallas.

The Patriots came to play on Sunday, surviving a rugged start (five Cowboys sacks in the first half alone) and pulling away down the stretch for a 30-6 win over Dallas Sunday afternoon at AT&T Stadium.

ARLINGTON, Tx. — When it comes to class, no one has more than Tom Brady in the eyes of Jonathan Kraft.

ARLINGTON, Tx. — The Patriots suffered their first significant injury of the season on Sunday when Dont’a Hightower had to leave in the first quarter with a rib injury.
