New England Patriots

The Patriots defeated the New York Jets 25-6 in a solid all-around effort on the road, getting back in the win column to move to 1-1. New England won on the strength of a dominating defensive performance, led by four interceptions, plus a handful of key plays on offense.

Here are the players (among other things) that we’re marking “UP” or “DOWN” after the Patriots’ win. Considering the one-sided nature of the game, there are more ups than downs to pull from this one.
