Rex Burkhead scored two touchdowns as the Patriots proved too good for the Bills

DL Geneo Grissom was promoted by the New England Patriots from the practice squad. 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 got off to a slow start in the first half when the Bills held them to just three field goals.

A victory Sunday at New Era Field would put Brady alone atop the ranks with 27 wins against the Bills.

Ground delivery - While there was some talk in the days leading up to the Patriots' annual visit to Buffalo that the Bills might be able to keep New England's defensive line off guard with the threat of running back LeSean McCoy, it was, instead, the Patriots' running game that took off on Sunday. The New England Patriots offense rolled in their first possession of the half. "There was quite a bit of stuff going on in that play". Taylor completed 9-of-18 passes for 65 yards and an interception. Burkhead would finish with over 100-all-purpose yards on the day. The reception gave him over 100-yards receiving on the day.

That consistency will certainly be tested by New England's Tom Brady, who is not only second in the league in touchdown passes with 26, but has helped the Patriots log 10 touchdowns on their last 11 red zone drives.

Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor was carted to the locker room with a knee injury early in the fourth quarter and did not return. With over 30-all goal yards on the drive to be capped off by a 14-yard rushing touchdown for Burkhead would extend the lead even further in the Patriots favor making it 23-3.

Rookie Nathan Peterman replaced Taylor and led the Bills to the 1-yard-line on his first series before turning the ball over on downs. The Bills fall to (6-6) and will play the Colts in Buffalo next week.
