The New England Patriots picked up yet another convincing win this season as they took care of business against the Cleveland Browns with a 45-7 victory in Week 10.

It was a near-flawless performance from the Patriots on both sides of the ball. Rookie quarterback Mac Jones continued to bolster his resume for the 2021 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award with a three passing touchdowns outing, while the defense allowed a mere one third down conversion to the Browns offense.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is much pleased with his team’s potent showing on offense. But as he noted during his post-game press conference, this performance was not made possible because of one player in particular, but rather it was a grand effort from the entire unit.

“It was a complete offensive effort,” Belichick said. “You couldn’t single anybody out. Browns have a lot of good defensive players, a great corner, a couple good defensive ends. You know, a lot of other good players, too and they brought a couple guys back this week defensively.

“I thought we ran the ball competitively, threw the ball competitively. Finished drives in the red zone with touchdowns. You know, it was a good team offensive effort all the way across the board in every area.”

Many counted out the Patriots following their sluggish 2-4 start to the season, but not the six-time Super Bowl-winning head coach. He is satisfied with the turnaround from his team over the past month.

“I’ve asked the players to work hard every day and they have tried to do that,” Belichick said. “But right now, none of that really means anything… What happened today or what happened in September or some other game, it doesn’t really — I don’t think it really matters at this point. It’s really what we do from here going forward.

“But players are doing a good job of studying… Players are doing a good job of trying to practice and understanding how important that practice execution sets up the performance in the game.”

The Patriots will look to move to 7-4 on the season with a possible Thursday Night Football win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 11.
