The New England Patriots were in a celebratory mood after their Week 3 win over the Las Vegas Raiders.
After a slow start offensively in the first quarter, the Patriots quickly found their groove and outscored the Raiders 36-17 over the final three quarters.
The defense also played very well, forcing three turnovers and scoring a touchdown for the second consecutive game.

The Patriots released Monday a video of the postgame locker room scene from Sunday's victory, including players congratulating each other on the win, as well as some remarks from head coach Bill Belichick.
He praised the offensive line after some players, including Joe Thuney, were thrust into unfamiliar roles due to injuries. Belichick also gave a shoutout to the running back group, who helped the team tally a season-high 250 rushing yards, along with two touchdowns.
"They couldn't tackle you guys," Belichick said of the running backs.
He talked about the importance of complimentary football, too, and singled out how good special teams and strong defense led to Deatrich Wise Jr.'s fumble recovery touchdown after a strip sack in the fourth quarter.
And, of course, team captain Matthew Slater also spoke to the team. How do the Patriots feel about earning their second win of the season? Find out in the video below:
