Our CSNNE Patriots postgame show crew breaks down the Patriots' 52-28 victory over the Bills in Buffalo in which a 35-0 second-half run put the game away.

Despite the victory there were some concerns over the defense and over kicker Stephen Gostkowski, who missed two first-half field goals. His inconsistent performance is making Ty Law and Troy Brown wonder if there's a confidence problem for the kicker.

One member of the defense that Law and Brown aren't concerned about is linebacker Brandon Spikes. He was Law's MVP of the game and Brown went so far as to dub him, "the best linebacker against the run in the NFL."

From Buffalo, Mike Giardi and Tom Curran talk about how the team was teetering on the edge of falling to 1-3 after a disappointing first half, and then falling behind 21-7 at the start of the third quarter. A half-hour later, they were in control of the game after the offensive outburst.
