Meanwhile, Bill Belichick passed Tom Landry for third on the all-time wins list for head coaches.
In the first quarter, Brady went a ideal 11-for-11 and got the Patriots on the board early with this catch-and-run play from Dion Lewis.
Brady became the first quarterback with 300-yard games in three countries, having also done it twice in London and 79 times in the United States. He ran by two defenders for a 52-yard catch in the second quarter, and he cooked rookie DB Obi Melifonwu for about as easy a 64-yard touchdown as possible. As for the point spread, the Raiders are now 7-point underdogs after the Patriots opened as 5-point favorites. Brady added a 5-yard TD pass to Amendola midway through the second quarter. Patrick Chung recovered with 33 seconds left at the New England 7.
Gostkowski, kicking in high altitude, also hit on field goals of 51, 40 and 29 yards.
Carr, limping by game's end, was 28 of 49 for 237 yards, the touchdown and one interception - Oakland receivers dropping several passes on the day. The over is also 6-2 in their last eight games versus AFC opponents, is 6-2 in their last eight games following an ATS win, and is 47-18 in their last 65 games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game. He is the only Patriots kicker with two 50-plus-yard field goals in the same game, and he has done it three times. He capped it with a 15-yard pass to Dion Lewis to take a 7-0 lead. The Patriots have now scored in the final minute of the first half in seven straight games.
NOTES: Oakland CB David Amerson and T Marshall Newhouse (hip/quad) were inactive because of a foot injury. A moment of silence was held before the game for the 468 lives lost in recent Mexican earthquakes.
