Although the Patriots have put last Sunday's win over the Jets in the rear-view mirror and are now focused solely on the Saints, a look back at the game-ball winners:
Tully Banta-Cain -- In just 26 snaps, outside linebacker/defensive end plays through injury and totals five tackles (one for a loss), two sacks and a forced fumble.
Leigh Bodden -- Cornerback ties a Patriots record with three interceptions.
Mark LeVoir -- Offensive tackle comes off the bench in a pinch and delivers a crushing block on a receiver screen that highlights the physical edge with which the Patriots played.
Ty Warren -- Defensive end ties for the team high with six tackles, continuing to do the dirty work that is easy to overlook.
Wes Welker -- Receiver notches career highs with 15 receptions and 192 yards.
