The New England Patriots did it again.

Even though plenty of the public thought the Tennessee Titans could cover the 7.5-point spread on their trip to Foxborough, the home side proved again why they're the hottest team in the NFL.

The Pats had a nearly-perfect offensive display and their defense continued to dominate.

Bill Belichick's side was in control of the game from start to finish and made a strong statement ahead of their divisional clash with the Buffalo Bills with a 36-13 win.

Mac Jones Credits His Teammates For His Breakout

Mac Jones had the best game of his young career, throwing for 310 yards and 2 touchdowns while completing 23 of 32 passes for a passer rating of 123.2.

When asked about his brilliant performance, the rookie QB credited his offensive line and receivers for making his job easier:

“Like I said, it starts with the front and then the guys getting open, they have done a good job of that all year and it’s just getting the ball in tried and throwing it to the right guy," Jones said, per Mass Live. "We’ve just got to continue to improve on that.”

Mike Vrabel Reacts To The Tough Loss

The Titans couldn't get anything going on either side of the football.

Penalties, erratic throws, and some uncharacteristic defensive meltdowns opened up the door for this blowout:

“Can’t go on the road, especially against a good team, and do those types of things and have penalties and start drives on the 10-yard line,” Titans HC Mike Vrabel said, as quoted by ClutchPoints. “Penalties on special teams, turnovers. So, you don’t have to look too hard on why we lost.” The Titans were decimated by injuries but coach Vrabel still thinks that's no excuse for Sunday's no-show:

“We’ve got to get healthy mentally and physically,” the coach added. “And get back to playing football how we know how to play it, taking care of the football, playing complementary, knowing the details. A lot of things to improve.”

Bill Belichick Isn't Satisfied Yet

On the flipside, Patriots coach Bill Belichick was rather blunt when asked about his team's nearly-perfect performance.

In full Belichick fashion, the defensive mastermind was unfazed by his team's dominance and claimed that they can still be better:

“Good all-around effort, left some plays out there, certainly some things we can do better, but we’ll take it," Belichick told the press.

Even if it may sound like humble-bragging or an attempt to be politically correct, we would've never expected a different answer from a guy like Bill Belichick.

Belichick Has Only One Thing In Mind

Despite the big win, Belichick stated that the team is only focused on their must-win game at Buffalo next Monday.

“Play Buffalo on Monday night,” the coach said “Look, eight games isn’t enough to clinch anything or win anything. We have a long way to go.”

The Patriots have claimed the top of the AFC East thanks to a league-best six-game winning streak, and Monday's game will be the first of two crucial matchups with the Bills.

We wouldn't put our money against Bill Belichick.
