Honorable Mention: Wide receiver Danny Amendola deserves all the credit in the world for picking up where Julian Edelman left off with a foot injury.
Third Star: Tight end Rob Gronkowski delivered a touchdown in the most absolutely amazing way. He collected 113 yards and a touchdown on five receptions and he helped block on the line for a good chunk of the day as the offensive line seemed to struggle.
Second Star: Cornerback Malcolm Butler deserves a ridiculous amount of credit. After the big touchdown by Odell Beckham Jr., which was more the fault of Devin McCourty, Butler locked down one of the best receivers in the entire league in dominant fashion. The official tally will come later, but Butler defended at least five passes.
First Star: Kicker Stephen Gostkowski is the greatest kicker in the league and it's not even close. The 54-yarder in the final seconds of the game makes him worth every single penny. He's amazing.
