DE Trey Flowers has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the host Buffalo Bills, the New England Patriots announced on Saturday. Buffalo had run 13 plays for 66 yards and chewed up 7:09 of clock to get all the way down to the Patriots 6-yard line before Tyrod Taylor was intercepted by Lee, who was able to come up with the ball so easily thanks to pressure from Alan Branch on Taylor.
Looking to improve on his 26-3 lifetime record against the Buffalo Bills, Tom Brady would be given the chance to put points on the board early.
Running back Rex Burkhead scored a pair of touchdowns after Stephen Gostkowski's three field goals had given New England the half-time lead. Following an opening offensive drive for the Buffalo Bills that saw them march down the field to only be stopped short has been a storyline all season long.
The Patriots find themselves in a rock fight at New Era Stadium in Orchard Park, New York, where they hold a 9-3 lead at the half over the Buffalo Bills.
Brady and McDaniels have been together for 14 years with the Patriots. After taking several snap in the Wild Cat formation, Joe Webb fired over the middle to a wide open Travaris Cadet, but the pass fell incomplete.
New England's nine points in the first half were the team's fewest in an opening half since a 16-0 loss to Buffalo on October 2, 2016. Burkhead would finish with over 100-all-purpose yards on the day. The highlight: A 30-yard reception down the right sideline that he ripped away from Buffalo rookie corner Tre'Davious White.
The Bills managed four first downs and 102 yards of offence over their next six possessions before Taylor left the game.
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.
