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.
