Patriots 34 Bills 20
Rain, rain, please just go away, the Patriots have had enough of you for one year. You made the field a slip n' slide, a place where all Patriots running backs went to fumble and fumble some more. But besides the rain, the football gods seemed to be on the Patriots side, as they were able to recover all four of their fumbles. But besides the fumbles, the Patriots offense had a good day.
The Patriots moved the ball well today racking up 217 yards on the ground. The Patriots leading rusher, LaGarette Blount slashed the Buffalo defense for 189 yards and two touchdowns. Gotta love this reinvigorated running game.
Brady had another mediocre day, throwing for 115 yards and a touchdown to Shane Vereen.
The defense had a solid day especially the second year pro Seaver Siliga and rookie Chris Jones. The two interior lineman held the Bills ground game in check even though Spiller ran for over a 100 yards.
For the Patriots, it is onto the playoffs with a first round bye. The Bills on the other hand have to go back to the drawing board and dig themselves out of last place in the AFC East.
