No. 12 then threw a football into the stands behind one end zone and hustled off to see all of his supporters.It was very cool. It doesnt get any better than that.

The AFC East-leading Patriots (8-2) bounced back from last weeks loss to the Seahawks on a rainy day at Levis Stadium.Edelman caught a 4-yard TD pass for the first score of the game , breaking away from Keith Reaser to the corner and barely keeping two feet inbounds.

Our players stayed after him.LEWIS DEBUT: Pats running back Dion Lewis made his season debut after recovering from reconstructive surgery on his left knee. He had a 9-yard reception for a first down during New Englands opening drive.DAWSONS MARK: With a 33-yard field goal in the first quarter, San Franciscos 41-year-old kicker, Phil Dawson, became the 10th kicker in NFL history to reach 400 field goals.SMITHS FIRST MISS: San Francisco wideout Torrey Smith missed his first career game and had his streak of consecutive games snapped at 89 because of a shoulder injury sustained last week at Arizona.
