Twitter Reacts to Controversial Overturned Bills Touchdown Against Patriots

Buffalo will now have to win next week in Miami and have a few other games go their way if they are going to make the playoffs. The Bills did a lot of bracketing of Gronkowski with a linebacker and a safety. Conspiracy theorists everywhere (especially on social media) already knew the outcome once the red flag came out of Belichick's sock; a reversal, a 1-yard gain and a first down, and it all led to a game-tying 34-yard field goal by Gostkowski with 5:08 left in the third quarter.

Despite the slow start, he finished the game with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown, continuing a run of dominant performances over the last month (with a week-long suspension sprinkled in).

Gronkowski also had a big impact in the running game.

"We just wanted to move on, try to come back out (in the second half) and put some more points on the board". The Pats entered the game ranked 10th in red-zone offense, converting 58 percent of drives into TDs.

With their own 2010 first round pick, the Patriots took defensive back Devin McCourty.

The Buffalo Bills have endured their share of near misses against the New England Patriots. The Bills stopped the Pats on the third trip inside the 20 thanks to a Kyle Williams sack of Brady.

White was lying face down on the sideline after intercepting Brady's fourth-quarter pass attempt to Gronkowski. By that point, the Bills' defense was getting tired and the Patriots were flexing their running-game muscle.

The New England running backs have a distinct advantage. "It was a huge play in the game". The Bills succeeded in discouraging Brady from throwing much downfield. He now serves as the team's primary deep threat, and that's exactly what he was against the Patriots. He managed just two catches for 19 yards.

Dion Lewis (Pitt) carried 24 times for career-high 129 yards and scored a rushing and receiving touchdown. If not, the team's playoff drought will continue for another season. He plays 30 percent of the snaps and is having his best season, with 977 yards from scrimmage.
