The Patriots played typical fantastic Patriots November football yesterday in Mexico City with a dismantling of the Oakland Raiders. The 33-8 victory was made even more special by the fact that Bill Belichick passed legendary coach Tom Landry on the all-time NFL coaching victories list! Bill is now number 3 all time.

 

It was only appropriate that owner Bob Kraft gave Coach Belichick the game ball.

 

Now, if it hadn't gone to Bill, it certainly could have gone to Stephen Gostkowski for kicking the longest field goal in Patriots history...a 62-yarder! The thin air of being at 7200 feet certainly helped.

 

The Patriots arrived back in New England early this morning from their long road trip that took them from Denver to Colorado Springs to Mexico City. They are home this weekend against the Dolphins then back on the road for the following three games.

 

Thank you Mexico!
