Truth is, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady own them. In all, he got 10 carries for 38 yards, including a 22-yard run in the fourth quarter to set up a Patriots' touchdown.

The Patriots defense had been playing stout all day while the offense had been strolling to get in the end zone.

Bills: Rookie starting middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds did not return in the second half after being diagnosed with a concussion.

On second thought - Outscored, 175-81, this season, the Bills have been particularly bad in the second quarter when they've gotten routed, 66-16.

How do you prepare for a player like this when all you have is a few games of tape and no tangible experience against him?

"Aaron's one of the best to ever play, so it'll be exciting", said Brady, who finished 29 of 45 for 324 yards passing against the Bills. That number could be better, because their anemic, turnover-prone offense (third-most total giveaways with 16) has made life hard on them.

Anderson was escorted off the field with 1:25 left when he was sacked by Kyle Van Noy.

If you tried the play in "Tecmo Super Bowl", it was usually thwarted before the quarterback even got the ball back, broken up in the backfield by the defense.

The Pats linebacker also added four run stops to his four total pressure and has put together his best stretch of play of his career over the last month or so.

With 9:58 left in the contest, White scored the game's first touchdown, plowing forward to give the Patriots an 18-6 lead after the 2-point conversion failed. His name and number were unveiled on a wall above the east end zone.

McCoy was hurt when he landed on his head while being tackled along the sideline on Buffalo's second play from scrimmage in a 37-5 loss at Indianapolis last weekend.

It happens each decade - "Monday Night Football" may be just another work shift for the players on the team in Foxboro, but it's a major event for the folks in Orchard Park, N.Y. A large part of this likely has to do with the fact that Derek Anderson was under center.

For the third-straight week, Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore spent most of the game on one receiver as he shadowed Bills wideout Kelvin Benjamin. He had three catches for 43 yards. Safety Patrick Chung had a fumble recovery. They have fallen from grace, allowing 335.3 yards per game, resulting in 25.0 points per outing. That won't cut it when New England faces teams that aren't stuck with the worst offense the National Football League has seen in at least two decades.
