The New England Patriots proved they don't need to spy to win. A few brilliant off-season acquisitions are more than enough.
In a rare battle of 5-0 teams, the New England Patriots stomped the Dallas Cowboys as badly as everyone else they've faced this season.
Tom Brady passed for 354 yards and a career-high six touchdowns -- two apiece to Randy Moss and Wes Welker -- for another division win.
The Patriots are showing no mercy to any opponent, not even the Bills, a team for which coach Bill Belichick has publicly expressed affection.
New England pulled off its great escape to become the sixth team in NFL history to start a season with 12 victories.
The Patriots found another way to stay unbeaten -- with a running game. And their coach showed a new way to greet his nemesis -- with a smile.
Records aren't important to the Patriots, not yet anyway. Not finishing the season at 16-0. Not becoming the highest scoring team in NFL history.
