Brandon Bolden turned in the other offensive touchdown of the night for New England, who also got scores from Kyle Van Noy on defense and Chase Winovich on special teams. Mike Nugent converted all four of the extra points he attempted, but missed a 40-yard field goal after it slammed off of the left post in the third quarter.
The New England defense was again the stars of the show, intercepting Daniel Jones three times in the contest and forcing a fumble once, which Van Noy returned for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to give the Patriots a double-digit lead.
With the win the Patriots move to 6-0 on the season and remain one of just two teams in the NFL without a loss on the year. They will gear up for their Week 7 opponent, the New York Jets, who they will face a week from Monday at MetLife Stadium.
