The sun really is shining in the New England right now as the Patriots are 4-0 and looking almost unstoppable.
Tom Brady and co. have responded perfectly to the summer of turmoil that surrounded the team and they are making a strong case to return to the Super Bowl once again.
New England are once again surprising everyone after they lost a lot of names on defense this past off-season but are still dominating the league.

There have been some strange tactics employed by head coach Bill Belichick once again, from his four tight-end formations to utilising Dion Lewis as more than just a runningback.
Belichick is once again finding a way to win and the Patriots don't look like they're planning on slowing down anytime soon.
The Patriots have become known for some strange tactics on the field, but today may have given birth to one of the strangest things seen from the organisation in their history.
NFL teams can always be expected to have some guests come along to their practice, but this?
The Patriots apparently had a bear come to visit them during practice but before anyone points it out, it wasn't a real bear.
The purpose of the visit is unknown, were the Patriots trying to find someone to cover star tight-end Rob Gronkowski? Or was the mascot for the NHL's Boston Bruins coming to wish them luck?
While the second option is much more likely, it was still something unusual to see.
A lot more serious
While the Patriots may have had a bit of fun today with the Bear, when they make the trip to Indianapolis on Sunday.
The rematch from last season's AFC Championship game comes with some very serious implications both on and off the field.
All eyes will be on Lucas Oil Stadium this Sunday night to see if it is the Indianapolis Colts of Tom Brady who come away with their 'revenge'.
