2. The Whole Offense Was Involved
While Jones played well, he also deserves credit for getting his teammates involved. Against a tough defense like Buffalo's, you need to spread the ball around and keep them off-balance, and that's exactly what Jones did.
He was patient and took what the defense gave him, not trying to force passes like he was during the past few weeks. He ended up completing passes to nine different Patriots receivers, including all three of his tight ends.
The fact that Jones won the game by finding Gesicki -- his TE2 who's mostly been an afterthought on offense -- sums up this win perfectly.
New England featured a similarly balanced attack on the ground. Rhamondre Stevenson and Ezekiel Elliott split carries, with Stevenson taking 9 carries for 34 yards and Ezekiel Elliott rushing for 31 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries.
Demario Douglas also got a carry for 20 yards, and even Jones managed to pick up 11 yards on 3 scampers.
Bill O'Brien has taken a lot of flak for the Patriots' offensive struggles so far, but deserves credit here for putting up a season-high 29 points against a brutal defense and calling a great game.
