New England Patriots take on the Buffalo Bills

New England Patriots take on the Buffalo Bills

New England (10-2) won its 14th consecutive road game - the second-longest streak in National Football League history - and reached double-digits in victories for the 15th consecutive season.

Tom Brady went 21-of-30 passing for 258 yards en route to his 27th career victory over the Buffalo Bills as the New England Patriots won 23-3 on Sunday for their eighth straight victory.

The Buffalo Bills gave their flagging playoff hopes a huge boost with a major upset on the road against a division leader and will try to do the same against one of their oldest rivals and a bitter nemesis. Forced once more to settle for a 31-yard field goal to make it 6-0 in the Patriots favor midway through the second quarter.

Brady overflowed with emotion with about 1:24 remaining in the first quarter against the Buffalo Bills. Gilmore spent his first five seasons in Buffalo before signing with the Patriots in free agency this past off-season. Then they did the weirdest thing and benched quarterback Tyrod Taylor despite him playing well and the team winning.

Worst challenge: Bills coach Sean McDermott asked for a review on a Brady incompletion in which the quarterback tripped over teammate Rex Burkhead's foot.

Nathan Redmond: Pep Guardiola was complimentary during passionate, intense chat
He apologised to Swarbrick and Mason after the match and admitted he had made a "mistake". All the managers want to help their players because if they play bad we'll be sacked.

The Patriots have turned to the Bills to fill several holes on their roster in recent years, with Lee the most recent example.

Taylor finished 9 of 18 for 65 yards and a costly interception on Buffalo's opening possession with the Bills facing first-and-goal at the Patriots 6. Five snaps later, facing second-and-10 from New England's' 37, Webb slightly overthrew Travaris Cadet, who was open deep over the middle.

Sunday will mark Brady's fifth December game in western NY, with the first coming in 2001 and proving to be one of the most memorable. Burkhead would finish with over 100-all-purpose yards on the day. Grissom has appeared in four games this season, with his lone tackle coming in New England's Week 3 win over Houston.

The Bills return home on December 10 to battle the Indianapolis Colts.
