|Oct 11 2015 - Tom Brady|
QB Tom Brady joined Peyton Manning and Fran Tarkenton as the only NFL quarterbacks to start 4-0 at least four times in their careers. Brady has 11 touchdowns and no interceptions through four games to go along with 1,387 yards passing.
Brady was sacked five times in the first half (not at all in the second) but still passed for 275 yards and two scores. "I don't think anybody questions Tom's toughness," coach Bill Belichick said. "Who's ever done that? Tom's one of the toughest players in the league." Still, those offensive line issues need to be cleaned up for Brady's sake.
|Oct 9 2015 - Chris Barker|
G Chris Barker was signed by the Patriots to their practice squad Friday (Oct. 9). Barker, 25, has had two stints so far in 2015 on the New England practice squad.

|Oct 7 2015 - Akiem Hicks|
DL Akiem Hicks had the benefit of the bye week to get a little extra time with the Patriots playbook upon arriving in a trade from the Saints last week. The 6-5, 325-pounder started the first three games this season for New Orleans and certainly could add some versatility and beef to a New England front that's allowed 4.7 yards per carry on the ground in its three wins.
|Oct 5 2015 - Ryan Wendell|
OL Ryan Wendell found his way to the practice field Oct. 5, New England's first workout coming out of the bye-week break. The veteran has yet to play this season and he has been absent from the practice field in recent weeks due to an undisclosed illness.
The veteran was clearly happy to be back to work and said he didn't feel limited "in any way."
"We all work hard to try to contribute to the team. You can't do that when you're not playing, so, it feels good to be out there at practice," the New England offensive line co-captain said. It feels good to do your job. You don't want to get paid to do nothing."

|Sep 28 2015 - Dion Lewis|
RB Dion Lewis has carved out a pretty impressive role for himself in his first three games in New England after being out of football last season.

"Great day out there for football," he said.

RB LeGarrette Blount rejoined the attack on Sunday. After serving a one-game drug suspension in the opener and then being used sparingly at Buffalo in Game 2, he ran for 78 yards and three touchdowns -- all from a yard out -- on 18 carries Sunday. "You always want to play," Blount said. "You always want to go out there and be with your guys; go out there and perform. It's always nice to be able to go out, play with those guys, be able to get into that rhythm, and score some points."
|Sep 26 2015 - Eric Martin|

It was also the highest passing yardage total Buffalo ever allowed, and this is supposed to be one of the best defenses in Bills history.
|Sep 20 2015 - Rob Gronkowski|

|Sep 20 2015 - Danny Amendola|
WR Danny Amendola caught just one pass, falling well short of fellow WRs Julian Edelman (11 receptions, 97 yards) and Aaron Dobson (seven receptions, 87 yards), but Amendola's lone reception was a beauty. Covered closely by CB Nickell Robey, Amendola hauled in a 29-yard pass to set up the Patriots' final field goal.
