Brady threw for 302 of his 447 passing yards in a 30-point first-half explosion, and the Patriots rolled up 555 yards and 29 first downs in a 36-20 spanking of the Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The Patriots scored on five of their first six possessions and punted only twice in the game. Gillislee - whom the Patriots smartly sniped from the Buffalo Bills - found the end zone yet again after scoring three touchdowns last week.More news: Sampha beats Ed Sheeran to take home Mercury Prize
The NFL has also created game-day procedures in an attempt to identify concussions when they happen and keep concussed players from returning to the game.
Back in 2012, Kaepernick led the 49ers to a 41-34 victory over the Patriots after New England erased a 28-point deficit in the second half. Playing back in the same stadium where he won his first Super Bowl title, Brady completed 11 of 15 passes for 177 yards and his first three touchdown passes of the season in the first quarter alone.More news: Most Active Runner As Share Volume Pops for Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL)
"Obviously, to start off like this, there's disappointment", Payton said. We go on the road in the division, against a very good Carolina team. Chiefs rookie Kareem Hunt ran for 148 yards on just 17 carries against New England last week, and when the Patriots take the field on Sunday, they won't have middle linebacker Dont'a Hightower. The Patriots are 43-6 following a loss since 2004.
It would make sense if the Patriots primarily use the bigger and more physical Gilmore to cover Michael Thomas, but having two top-tier cornerbacks gives New England options as they plan for the Saints. After bringing in a 21-yard pass in the third quarter, Gronk was twisted as he went to the ground awkwardly and landed hard on his right shoulder. RB James White had eight receptions for 85 yards as Brady picked apart the Saints underneath.
This the fourth season in a row they've started the season 0-2, and are now 1-11 in the first month of the season over those four years.More news: U2, Ed Sheeran Cancel St. Louis Shows Amid Violent Protests
