Match ends, Crewe Alexandra 0, MK Dons 5.
MK Dons moved to the top of League One after they cruised to victory at Crewe.
Devante Cole opened the scoring with his first goal since joining on loan from Manchester City, before Dean Bowditch chipped home a second.
Cole stroked home his second after Daniel Powell's cut back, with Carl Baker and then Powell adding second-half efforts.
The Railwaymen struggled all afternoon with Jamie Ness and Anthony Stewart having their best efforts.
MK Dons manager Karl Robinson told BBC Three Counties:
"To come here with a statement of intent was important for all the players. I think that was important today, after the weather was difficult and the pitch was firm.
"The way the players have worked all week and took things on board is a real sign of character from them.
"No one is getting carried away, as you can imagine. We just worry about ourselves and that's all we can do.
"Nothing is handed out and there's still a lot of work to be done. I think it's firmly important now that we keep our feet firmly on the ground."
