New England Patriots Lay Embarrassing Loss On The Buffalo Bills
With all the injuries on both sides of the ball I just didn't think the Buffalo Bills had much of a chance against the New England Patriots, but I didn't think it would be as bad as it turned out to be. Tom Brady passed for 315 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Patriots to a 41-25 win at New Era Field on Sunday.
Brady's four touchdown passes included a pair of 53-yard scores, one to former Bill Chris Hogan and the other to Rob Gronkowski. The Bills defense was no match for what Brady and the Patriots can bring. The Patriots finished with only 357 yards in offense, but it's what they do with those yards. Not including the kneel down at the end of the game, the Patriots had ten offensive possessions and scored on seven of them.
The Bills had a promising drive to start the game but settled for a field goal. The Patriots meanwhile scored touchdowns on their first two drives. The Bills were forced to play catch-up and they never did.
The Patriots victory was payback for the 16-0 win the Bills laid on them a couple of weeks ago in Foxborough. And it continues an amazing streak. Since Tom Brady became their quarterback 15 years ago the Patriots have never been swept by an AFC East opponent during the regular season.
While Brady had an incredible day, Tyrod Taylor completed just 19 of 38 passes for 183 yards and no touchdowns. All of the Bills touchdowns coming on the ground on runs of 26 yards by Taylor, Mike Gillislee for three yards and Jonathan Williams for a yard.
So after a four game winning streak the Bills have lost their last two to drop to 4-4 with another big challenge coming up next Monday night when they travel west for a Monday night game against the Seattle Seahawks.
