Bills brace for Brady, Patriots' latest trip to Buffalo

Bills brace for Brady, Patriots' latest trip to Buffalo

Brady, whose lone blip on the day was an interception, broke Brett Favre's National Football League record for most wins against a single opponent.

Brady improved to 27-3 in his career against Buffalo, including 14-2 in games in Orchard Park. They gained 191 of their 435 yards on the ground.

The running game has been strong, however, with both Dion Lewis (eight carries, 64 yards) and Rex Burkhead (four carries, 45 yards) breaking off lengthy runs.

Buffalo still has another game against the Patriots in Week 16, but here are our observations from this loss.

Where does Bill Belichick find these guys. Buffalo also lost ground in the wild-card race as it tries to end the longest postseason drought in North American sports at 17 seasons. Then they did the weirdest thing and benched quarterback Tyrod Taylor despite him playing well and the team winning.

At that point, Brady had 206 yards passing while New England had 183 yards rushing in a balanced attack.

This game perhaps serves as the beginning of the end of the Bills' 2017 season. Lawson was carted to the locker room in the third quarter with a knee injury. Ultimately, the play did not have any outcome on the game, but it was not a good look for one of the faces of the franchise.

Rookie Nathan Peterman wasn't all that impressive after coming in for Taylor. He finished with 15 carries for 92 yards. Ultimately, keeping the scoreboard clean is more important, but New England can not afford to let potential playoff opponents like Pittsburgh or Kansas City control the clock with an effective ground game. Lewis had a 44-yard gain early on in the half and Burkhead busted out for a career-long 31-yard gain on New England's final drive of the half. The NFL's top tight end was mostly held in check in the first half, but he later reminded everyone why he is the most hard matchup in football.

Stephen Hauschka booted a 49-yard field goal as Buffalo trailed 9-3 at the half. Defensive tackles Kyle Williams and Adolphus Washington each sacked Brady in the red zone to force field goals.

It wasn't always pretty, but after an up-and-down first half, the Patriots dominated the latter part of Sunday's 23-3 victory over the Buffalo Bills. Yes, that's the same Eric Lee who was plucked from the Bills' practice squad.
