The New England Patriots continued to build on their hopes of achieving a top-two seed finish in the AFC by defeating the Oakland Raiders in their Week 11 contest in Mexico City on Sunday.

The Patriots' offense was too much for the Raiders to handle, as they managed to secure an easy 33-8 victory to move the team to an 8-2 record on the season and one step closer to securing a first-round bye in the playoffs.

New England's quarterback Tom Brady had a fantastic game, as he usually does, as he completed 30 of his 37 passing attempts on the day for 339 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions, the fourth game in a row he has managed to avoid throwing a pick.

Brady was connected to all his receivers on the day, most specifically to Brandin Cooks, who he completed six passes to for 149 yards and a touchdown. He was also in sync with Danny Amendola, as he completed eight passes to the wideout for 66 yards and a touchdown.

In truth, nothing could really stop the Patriots quarterback from completing a pass to one of his receivers in the game, and his excellent communication skills with his players were brilliantly explained by CBS commentator and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

Romo perfectly broke down what was going on in the pre-snap conversation between Brady and his receivers, which ultimately lead to Amendola catching his touchdown with no pressure whatsoever in the back of the endzone.

The former Cowboys star made it easy for fans to understand by saying what Brady and Amendola might be saying to one another, depending on what the Patriots quarterback sees from the Raiders' defense, as well as signaling to his receiver to run a particular route.

New England will now be looking to extend their winning streak to seven games when they host the Miami Dolphins next week at Gillette Stadium.
