The New England Patriots offense was so explosive on Sunday that they didn't have to punt once.
That fact means Patriots punter Ryan Allen earned a $34,441 game check for not booting any balls.
"It never really works that way," Allen told reporters after the game. "This is kind of a once in a blue moon deal. [The offense] did a heck of a job today. I was just focused on my job and my job today was being ready if I was needed to punt and if we crossed over the 50-yard line, be ready for holds and to have good operations for Steve [Gostkowski]. And I think we did a good job today."

Allen, however, was available on all of Stephen Gostkowski's kicks which means it was money well earned.
Allen, whose base salary in 2015 is $585,000 according to Spotrac.com, signed a three-year extension with the Patriots this past July.
