New England Patriots take on the Buffalo Bills

New England Patriots take on the Buffalo Bills

The two-headed running back attack of Dion Lewis (15 carries, 92 yards) and Rex Burkhead (12 carries, 78 yards, 2 TDs) helped, and so did a bend-but-don't-break defense that decisively slammed the door shut in the red zone.

Buffalo can keep their playoff hopes alive with a win, whereas New England can guarantee yet another double-digit win season if they pull it off. The Patriots finished with 191 yards rushing in their latest conquest of the Buffalo Bills. Following the victory for the Patriots they would improve to (10-2) and will go on to face the Miami Dolphins. But the real story here was that questionable hit in the fourth quarter on Bills' cornerback Tre'Davious White following an interception of Tom Brady. Gronkowski had 147 yards receiving, the most he's had this season, and was a complete turnaround in the second half, as was the rest of the New England offense. While Burkhead scored a pair of touchdowns, with 75 yards to boot, this game was further proof just how valuable Lewis can be when healthy.

Rookie Nathan Peterman replaced Taylor and led the Bills to the 1-yard-line on his first series before turning the ball over on downs. He wasn't the only former Bill to haunt his former team, as Eric Lee, whom the Patriots plucked off the Bills' practice squad just last week, had a key interception on the Bills' first drive of the game, and added a sack along with three tackles on the day. With over 30-all goal yards on the drive to be capped off by a 14-yard rushing touchdown for Burkhead would extend the lead even further in the Patriots favor making it 23-3.

So the Patriots maintained possession and went on to kick a game-winning field goal. The Patriots were also without sack leader DE Trey Flowers (ribs). Grissom was signed by New England to the practice squad on November 11 after being released from the 53-man roster two days earlier.
