Running game, stingy defense support fiery Tom Brady in win over Bills

Running game, stingy defense support fiery Tom Brady in win over Bills

His lifetime stat line against the Bills: 610-of-955 for 7,316 yards, with 66 touchdowns, 20 interceptions and a passer rating of 101.5. Set up by a 27-yard precision pass from Brady to Danny Amendola on the sideline the Patriots would put the first points of the day on the board. A 44-yard Dion Lewis runs for the Patriots was the longest play of the half as Lewis was able to get deep into Buffalo territory thanks to a massive stiff arms safety Jordan Poyer.

The future Hall of Fame quarterback walked off the field.

The Bills would receive their offense in the first half from an unlikely source in that of a special teamer and backup quarterback Joe Webb.

Brady needed to simply stand aside and let the Patriots' rejuvenated rushing attack wear down the Bills in a game New England never trailed.

A third field goal of the half for the Patriots would make the score 9-3 going into halftime.




This was Lee's second game with the Patriots.

Sunday will mark Brady's fifth December game in western NY, with the first coming in 2001 and proving to be one of the most memorable.

Burkhead's first touchdown capped a methodical 10-play, 70-yard drive. Peterman finished 6 of 15 for 50 yards in three series. Although Cooks added a five-yard rush, it was by far his quietest game in a Patriots uniform.

In what had the makings of a competitive game early, the Patriots pulled away for a convincing 23-3 win over the Bills on Sunday. Sparked by Eric Lee's interception to thwart the Bills' impressive opening drive in the end zone, the unit held quarterback Tyrod Taylor and running back LeSean McCoy in check to continue its impressive momentum.

The Miami Dolphins ended their five-game losing run with a 35-9 victory over the Denver Broncos, condemning their visitors to an eighth straight loss.
