Buffalo Bills With A Stunning Comeback Win Over New England
When you’re happy and you know it – clap your hands. If stadium officials didn’t lower the goal posts at the end of the game Bills fans would likely have done more than just clap their hands after the Bills stunning 34-31 comeback victory over the New England Patriots.
For the second week in a row the Bills treated their fans to an entertaining game that came down to the wire and it wasn’t decided until Rian Lindell hit on a 28-yard field goal as time expired.
When the Patriots took a 21-nothing lead in the first half it looked like the same ol’ same ol’ but the Bills made it 21-10 before halftime and cashed in on a total of four interceptions of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady – one of them returned 27 yards for a touchdown by Drayton Florence to give the Bills the lead for the first time in the game.
Like they always seem to do the Patriots tied it on the next possession, but the Bills drove the length of the field with time winding down and were able to kill the clock inside two minutes to allow Lindell’s kick on the final play of the game.
Brady threw for 386 yards and four touchdowns and set a league record for most passing yards over a stretch of 3 games, but the four interceptions tied a career high for him.
The win ends a 15-game losing streak to the Patriots. Last time the Bills beat the Patriots was in the season opener in 2003.
So with Patriots dropping to 2 & 1 and the New York Jets falling to the Oakland Raiders – just take a look at the standings in the AFC East. Yep, there they are all alone on top of the division at 3 & 0 – the Buffalo Bills.
