Belichick wary of Patriots return to Mexico due to volcanoes and quakes

Belichick wary of Patriots return to Mexico due to volcanoes and quakes

That was the case again Sunday, as Jones helped create two New England Patriots takeaways during their 33-8 rout of the Oakland Raiders in Mexico City despite not coming away with the ball in either instance. They did just about everything right for the second straight week, and treated worldwide football fans to quite the show on Sunday.

Gronk's position has gotten a bit more crowded in recent weeks with Martellus Bennett joining the team and Dwayne Allen breaking through in the passing game. "It was just a fiesta all over the field".

Sunday was not the Oakland Raiders best day. "The crowd was insane". Lewis has led the team in carries in each of the team's last five games, and his explosiveness and versatility have been on display in the passing game and special teams.

As we've grown accustomed to seeing, Mack was once again active all afternoon, finishing his Week 11 outing with a full stat line of four tackles, one sack, one tackle for loss, and three quarterback hits. "The fans were very passionate and it was pretty cool to play in a soccer stadium". The in-game experience further added to his newfound love of the city.

"Players did a great job dealing with all the challenges that we had to deal with", Belichick said on Dale & Holley with Keefe. "It was a great experience".

"These trips all come down to whether you win or lose", he said.

Mexico City was hit with a 7.1 magnitude quake in September, resulting in the death of 200 people.

Lately, it feels more often of an occurrence.

It was a rough day for the Raiders defense, no doubt about that, but they'll get a chance to right the ship this weekend in a true home game against the Denver Broncos.

The Patriots couldn't be more grateful for the hospitality that awaited them at each stop.

"I think we're fortunate there was no volcano eruptions or earthquakes, or anything else while we were down there", Bill Belichick said in an appearance on WEEI on Monday.

I guess we know where Bill won't be vacationing this winter.

The Patriots will get to spend Thanksgiving week at home before playing host to the Miami Dolphins next Sunday.
