The New England Patriots helped erase some of the questions from their week 1 loss to the Chiefs by demolishing the Saints, 36-20, on the road at New Orleans.
Tom Brady threw for 447 yards and three touchdowns while Rob Gronkowski had more than 100 yards receiving. The team also rushed for a combined 119 yards in the win on 31 carries.

The win was not without more trouble for the Super Bowl champs, who saw Chris Hogan, Gronkowski, Rex Burkhead and Eric Rowe all leave the game at somepoint or another with injury. Gronk’s groin injury is not believed to be serious, but Rowe left the game with a groin injury and we will know more today.
New England is now 1-1 and will take on the Houston Texans next week. Houston is also 1-1 and has looked awful on offense through two games.
