The Patriots came up with a zone blocking scheme that successfully negated Bills DT Kyle Williams’s impact on the game.
With the score 7-3, Patriots LB Gary Guyton forced a fumble that LB Jerod Mayo recovered to help propel the team toward the blowout win.
The Patriots forced six more turnovers during the game to create short fields for Brady and the offense all day long.
Said Bills S Donte Whitner, “We couldn’t stop the run, we couldn’t stop the pass, we couldn’t do anything on offense, and we turned the ball over on special teams. All three phases, when you do that against a good team like New England, the result is 34-3.”
Bills WR Stevie Johnson got 58 receiving yards, one more than he needed to secure his first 1,000-yard season.
The Bills ran their total of touchdowns allowed to opposing tight ends to 11 on the season.
TE David Nelson left with a rib injury and will likely miss the Bills’ season finale against the Jets.
