The New England Patriots started the season off in fine fashion against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, winning 34-13 at LP Field.
The Patriots were expected to win this game according to many of the experts and did so without leaving much doubt as to what the outcome would be throughout the game.
Over at Pats Pulpit, Greg Knopping sums it up nicely including his breakdown of the offensive showing:
It wasn't the most dominating game, as the game was more competitive than the score suggests. Nonetheless, the Patriots found ways to execute on both sides of the football. On offense, the Patriots were led by running back Stevan Ridley, who produced 125 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. It's early, but Ridley looks as good as one could imagine on offense. Quarterback Tom Brady also looked sharp for most of the game, completing 23 of 31 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns, one to each of his tight ends, Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.
Brady may not have had one of his 400-yard days, but he was effective as always while picking apart the Titans' defense. It was without question an impressive showing that has the greater New England area feeling good about the Patriots' prospects.
