As our esteemed college Brian Phillips said, the New England Patriots are off to the most disastrous 4-0 start. After annihilating the then-winless Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins, and New York Jets, the Patriots looked mortal on the road against the 3-0 Buffalo Bills, scraping out an ugly 16-10 victory to remain undefeated.

But should we even really be worried? Who were the Patriots missing on offense? Didn’t the defense still play at a high level? Aren’t the Bills actually one of the best defenses in the NFL? Wasn’t New England on the road against a divisional rival?

Anything could have happened, and the Patriots won. The only real concern should be the status of Stephen Gostkowski, who continues to struggle with missed kicks.
