Danny Woodhead scores as Patriots beat Bills

Remember Danny Woodhead, the Jets running back/receiver on Hard Knocks who seemed like a nice enough fellow but not really good enough for the NFL?

He’s with the Patriots now. And it turns out he is good enough for the NFL.

Woodhead made a solid contribution to the Patriots today, running for 42 yards, including a 22-yard touchdown, as New England beat Buffalo 38-30.

The game featured six lead changes, and Buffalo was competitive throughout, but ultimately the Bills’ defense just couldn’t stop Tom Brady or BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Brady completed 21 of 27 passes for 252 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions, and Green-Ellis added 98 yards on 16 carries.

And so the Bills fall to 0-3 and remain in last place in the AFC East, while the Patriots get their first divisional win.

    is MDS a Greatriots fan as well? i thought it was bad enough with Gregg “Jack” Rosenthal. yes, Danny Woodhead had an okay showing in limited time against one of the worst teams in the past several years. does this really mean he is “good enough for the NFL?” or does Florio just make all his sex slaves type like that?

    Woodhead is the type of player Belichek loves. Low maintenance and versatile. Jets were stupid to let him go… perfect fit in New England, especially with Kevin Faulk out for the season. All of a sudden Mark Sanchez playing well against New England doesn’t look so great, does it Ryan Fitzpatrick?

    What a great name……..Imagine being in a club, and talking to a girl, Hey Baby, my name is Danny…..Danny Woodhead…..wanna find out?

    Hey, Woe is Mets, let Woodhead have his moment for Christ’s sake. The kid is the size of my Grandma, and he looked good when given a chance… in the NFL. Which is more than any of us keyboard warriors could ever claim. Today, Woodhead was more than good enough for the NFL.

    If by “okay showing” you mean 42 yards on 3 carries and a touchdown, then yes it was okay. I think it was pretty awesome for someone who has only been with the Pats for a week.

    I’m sure Rex Ryan will just call him a gimmick or blame someone else.
    He’s real good at NOT owning his mistakes. I’m sure Tennenbaum isn’t wishing him success next time the Pats play the Jets.

    What the hell is a prototypical Pats player?…….Enough with the over 5 years since they won anything bluster……They gave up 30 points to Ryan Fitzpatrick and the freakin Buffalo Bills, but since he had 42 yards , he’s what prototypical. HUH?…..Prototypical of what?…Don’t they have prototypical players on defense?…….Enough already

    If today’s balanced Patriots offensive attack (252 pass yds/200 rush yds) can be repeated consistently going forward, then that bodes very well for the future. Both the receiving corps—including the dynamic tight-end duo of Hernandez & “Gronk”—and the rushing tandem of Green-Ellis and Woodhead looked solid.
    On the other hand, it’s clear that opponents will continue to test the Pats’ secondary (corners, in particular), as demonstrated by the spirited passing attack of the Bills, who tried to take a page out of last week’s Jets playbook.
    P.S. On an unrelated note, the Chiefs (3-0) crushing win over the 49ers (0-3) is certainly a notable Week 3 storyline. Scott Pioli, Charlie Weis, Romeo Crennel, Matt Cassel, Mike Vrabel—those names sound awfully familiar…

    What the hell is a prototypical Pats player?
    Didn’t care about keeping the football from his first NFL touchdown.
    Only worried about success of the team.

    The Pats will have a hard time getting to 7-9 this year.
    No defense at all, none.

    Brady looks sharp. Moss is motivated. Their offense will be effective… anybody remember the Cincinnati game? Not exactly slouches on the defensive side of the ball.
    N.E.’s defense, on the other hand, there’s cause for concern there.
    Woodhead’s versatility makes him a “prototypical Pats player,” and during the 5-years without winning anything, didn’t they break the single-season scoring record and have an undefeated regular season? Didn’t they lose an all-world QB and still goes 11-5? Have they not made the playoffs every year since 2002 other than the Matt Cassel season? Most teams would kill for that type of consistency.

    To Loud Mouth Pats Fans:Keep running your gums now while you can,because the deeper into the season we go, the less your gonna have to be happy about.

    With the loss of Faulk, trade of Maroney and the toe injury to Taylor. The Law Firm and Woody did a great job with the chances they had.
    Now lets see what this turns into in the next few games as the only other RB is Morris who also gets injured during the season.
    At the end of the season we can tell if Law Firm/Woody are the future of the Pats.
