Really sluggish first half for the Patriots on both sides of the ball, but the Patriots dominated the second half to put away the Raiders.

Offensive line seemed to do a great job with David Andrews against a challenged front seven of the Raiders defense.

Patriots rushed for over 250 yards, and Sony Michel had 117 with 5 minutes left.

Chase Winovich was all over the field making plays, and Deatrich Wise had some key pressure, including a sack and fumble for a TD late.

The second half was good stuff for the Patriots.
