NFL Odds New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills

WATCH: Bill Belichick calls Rob Gronowski hit 'bulls***' to Bills coach Sean McDermott

Lewis had a 44-yard gain early on in the half and Burkhead busted out for a career-long 31-yard gain on New England's final drive of the half. His lifetime stat line against the Bills: 610-of-955 for 7,316 yards, with 66 touchdowns, 20 interceptions and a passer rating of 101.5.

The New England Patriots were supposed to waltz into Buffalo and blow out the Bills on Sunday.

Brady and McDaniels have been together for 14 years with the Patriots. The Bills moved back over.500 with an impressive 16-10 win at Kansas City last weekend after surrendering a staggering 135 points during a ghastly three-game slide. In other words, it was a game like many others between the two teams in which the Bills had a glimmer of hope before meeting the reality of the Patriots and losing again in the end. It didn't help that McDermott's decision backfired in benching quarterback Tyrod Taylor in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman, who threw five first-half interceptions in a 54-24 loss at the Los Angeles Chargers on November 19.

The Pats settled for three field goals after struggling in the red zone in the first half. Lewis has had at least 10 carries in the each of the past six games, and leads the Patriots with 498 rushing yards and a 5.1 yard per carry average _ both career highs.




Still, it seemed a matter of time before Gronk, who had 28 yards receiving at halftime, asserted himself. The NFL's top tight end was mostly held in check in the first half, but he later reminded everyone why he is the most hard matchup in football.

He had an interception and 1 1/2 sacks and batted down a pass against the Bills, the same team that couldn't find a place for him while they were giving up 35 points per game during a three-game losing streak. 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. No need to answer as Lee finished the afternoon with four tackles, 1.5 sacks.

At that point, Brady had 206 yards passing while New England had 183 yards rushing in a balanced attack. He was benched after Buffalo managed 99 net yards and four first downs through 55 minutes in a 47-10 loss to New Orleans on November 12. Give him credit on the play, but man, what a awful throw by Taylor.

Lee had a sack last week in his first game with New England.
