Patriots vs. Colts: BenJarvus Caps Off Third Touchdown Drive For Patriots

The Pats are damn-near perfect on offense right now, putting up a touchdown on each of their first three drives to start the game.

New England got started with a nice return from Brandon Tate, who was maybe one more good move away from breaking off for six himself. Big receptions from Rob Gronkowski and Deion Branch set the Patriots up in the red zone. From there it was mostly just a matter of giving the ball to BenJarvus Green-Ellis until he got into the end zone.

21 points is the most given up by the Colts defense in the first half so far this year, and the most in either half since the Texans also put up 21 in Week 1. The final score in that game was 34-24, Houston.
