One aspect that pleased Patriots coach Bill Belichick in the team's season-opening win was the lack of penalties. The Patriots were flagged for just four penalties (one was declined) and all were on defense.

The breakdown (includes declined penalties):

Penalty count
Ras-I Dowling -- 1
Chandler Jones -- 1
Jerod Mayo -- 1
Brandon Spikes -- 1

Most called penalties
Defensive pass interference -- 2
Defensive holding -- 1
Offside -- 1

Drawn holding penalties
Jermaine Cunningham -- 1
Devin McCourty (special teams/KO coverage) -- 1
