Patriots offense breaks out in win over Steelers

The Patriots' offense finally looked like the one everyone has grown accustomed to over the years.

For eight games, New England slugged its way out to six games, lookinng pedestrian on the offense. That changed Sunday in a 55-31 over Pittsburgh.

Tom Brady completed 23 of 33 passes for 432 yards and four interceptions. Tight end Rob Gronkowski caught nine passes for 143 yards and a touchdown and receiver Danny Amendola caught four passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns.

Rookie receiver Aaron Dobson hauled in five passes for 130 yards and two touchdowns.

The offense stayed balanced, with running back Stevan Ridley running the ball 26 times for 115 yards and two touchdowns. LeGarrette Blount also added a rushing touchdown.
