And now 21 yard TD given up to West. This one is done.

Massive questions to be asked about this Patriots defensive unit going into week 2

Not a good start and not looking like it's just new players settling in.
Hopefully it's just an off day, but this defence looks horrible!!!!

lol mitchel made up for it. Before the game analyst were saying would can Brady Trust? IMO he should have trusted other guys, his main targets were Gronk and Amendola, then he tried cooks. Should have been like that from the start

horrid for Berry.

Smith tried to help by sacking himself at one point.

your D has been ugly, might be the scheme that long Hill TD was focus on but it looked like the same thing happened on the other side.

Disappointing lack of fight in the squad is the most worrying thing - Pats always look rusty and shaky in September, particularly on defence, so I'm a little less worried about that (Belichick will figure it out) - I am worried about the way the D gave up on that last drive and how the O lacks bite without Edelman on the field.

The AFC West is one hell of a division!

If the Pats play defence like that this year then they are in big trouble. They missed Edelman massively.

Great game to start the season, and one in the eye for those predicting a perfect season for NE.

Bitter sweet for Chiefs losing Berry, but Hunt, Smith and Hill looked incredible.

No reason to panic for the Patriots though, they've been there before against the same team and it was nothing more than a bump in the road.
