Patriots hold on for close win over Bills

Getty Images

The Patriots remain the class of the AFC East. But at least the Bills made them work for it.

In a game that was closer than most expected, Buffalo went toe-to-toe with New England for 60 minutes before ultimately falling 16-10.

The Bills’ defense easily had the best effort against Tom Brady we’ve seen this season, holding him to just 18-for-39 passing, only 150 yards, an average of just 3.8 yards per pass, and no touchdown passes with one interception.

But the Bills’ offense couldn’t keep up. Josh Allen threw three interceptions before he was knocked out of the game, and his replacement Matt Barkley threw a pick that ended it in the final minutes. The lone bright spot for the Bills’ offense was the ageless Frank Gore, who had a big game on the ground.

The Bills fall to 3-1 and look like legitimate AFC playoff contenders. But the 4-0 Patriots are clearly the overwhelming favorites to win the division. As usual.

  1. I tried to warn people this was going to be an ugly defensive game. Allen and Barkley sucking was the key to the game. Offense especially Brady has to do better next week but an ugly win is still a win. Go Pats!

  2. As usual a hard fought game in Buffalo, heck of a D they got going this year.
    Offensive line woes for New England getting scary without Devlin, thankfully Watson back next week so at least some help at TE.
    We are on to Washington.

  3. I enjoyed that rough and tumble throw back to the 90’s game we just saw. This Patriots fan says don’t look now these Bills may find themselves playing playoff football this season.

  4. Pats fans, you feel good about that cheap helmet to helmet hit on Josh Allen? Won you the game. See you in December.

  5. Before the CRYING starts the hit on the QB was not cheap and should Not have been flagged

    The crown of The QB helmet hot the DBs helmet on the side.

    The DBs head was up he came in leading with his shoulder

    Bad call

  6. Josh Allen sucks. I never understood the hype. He throws the ball up for grabs too much. Buffalo will need to better at QB to be taken serious

  7. No moral victories for this fan. Pats won & deserved to win. Bills made too many mistakes against a team you have to play near-perfect against.

    People will write off Josh Allen after today, but that’s a legit D. I still have faith in him, though he has a lot to prove after what happened in this game.

    The only encouragement today is that Brady is finally, officially “not scary.” You can deny it all you want Pats Nation, but his days are definitely winding down.

    Good game though. Hard fought, and the better team won today.

  8. It wasn’t pretty, but a win is a win. The Pats defense was outstanding, even missing Hightower.
    Plus Buffalo ‘s backup QB looked better than the starter. The Buffalo defense is for real.
    Interesting choice of challenge flags and timeouts by Buffalo.

  9. Im glad the pat won. I used to hate the pats but now i cheer for them. Its like that guy at work who you always hated but now he is your best friend.I have just decided to just appreciate what these guys are doing, The greatness of tom brady. The bills werent a fluke. They came close and would have won the game if allen didnt get a concussion. Go brady and win another ring for number 7.

  10. The NFL didn’t need to help the sissy Pats win today. Buffalo doesn’t have an NFL qb on the roster

  11. How can somebody use his head to take the Bill’s qb off? To me a personal foul shouldn’t be negated by an unrelated holding call. And intentional spearing like that should be an ejection!!

  12. Annnnd queue the complaining about the hit on Josh Allen as he was trying to drag a defender forward within a yard of a big first down. He positions himself so the only place to hit him to stop the first down was in the shoulders and head. Complain about the hit being dirty if you want, 9 out of 10 defenders would do the same thing in that situation. But elite QBs would not put themselves in that situation unless this was the actual superbowl. (Not the “Bills Superbowl” aka home game against the Patriots). Slide after 5 yards and play the rest of the game, or pick up the first down on penalty yardage and be out the rest of the game. Your choice.

  13. Yeah, if not for the “sweep the leg” moment from Belicheat, the outcome would’ve been different. Instead, Josh Allen takes a cheap shot to the head which pretty much seals the loss.

  14. Allen just keeps hurting his team, if he’s not throwing INT’s he’s fumbling the ball.

    He throws off his back foot over and over again and he runs too much and too high, it was just a matter of time before he got injured.

    It looks like he’s actually regressed instead of progressed.

  15. Solid effort by the Bills in the loss, still need to grow a bit on offense, limit the turnovers, and learn how to finish drives with TDs to get over the hump against the Pats. Both teams will be tough outs against everyone they play for the rest of the year from the looks of it.

  16. Bills are very good except Allen who looked pretty bad most of the time he was in there. All 3 INTs were just tossed up for grabs with very little chance of a reception by the receiver.

    Tough game though the D is excellent and they scheme up very well against Brady.

  17. Great hard fought game on both sides. That bills qb should have been flagged for leading with his head on the run. I know you want the first down but no need to be dirty.

  18. The Patriots are going to ride the defense and special teams all the way to Miami. Just need to get #1 playoff seed and it’s a wrap.

  19. Ugly ugly ugly and a lot to fix on offense. Brady on the run is asking for trouble Defense gave too many yards to a backup. Place kicker is a major concern. Edelman is not much more than a decoy. No deep threat.

    Punter looks good.

  20. considering how poorly they played,incredible they won TB’s worst game ever, mental mistakes left and right, tons of penalties, they need to play way better if they have SB aspirations- Tom’s throws were way off- credit Bills D to a degree, but he was crappy, no he is not sliding off a cliff, just a bad game, he will likely fix his mechanics and turn in much better perfornmances going forward

  21. As bad as Allen & the Bills offense was they still had a chance to win the game.
    Allen doesn’t seem to have a quick learning curve, as he makes the same dumb mistakes over & over. Also doesn’t seem to be able to throw very well. Still looks very raw.
    They got to find some answers on offense, otherwise they’re wasting a great defense.

    You better hope so because your Pats offense isnt going anywhere…..

  23. The Bills defense was excellent and Brady (rightfully) had no confidence in his O-line, so it was just one 3-and-out after another for the Patriots. This Patriots victory is almost entirely attributable to their defense, which was outstanding. Just one of its many highlights was Devin McCourty having another interception, making his fourth straight game with an INT. JC Jackson had two INTs and a block punt, which led to Matthew Stafford’s first career TD.

  25. Too many of those over the years.

    So sick of the Pats. Give ’em credit for pulling these out, but their fans don’t even appreciate it anymore.

    I’m so ready for that team to be average again.

    What? Probably one of the worst games statistically for the Pats in a long time.

  27. I tried to warn people this was going to be an ugly defensive game. Allen and Barkley sucking was the key to the game. Offense especially Brady has to do better next week but an ugly win is still a win. Go Pats!

    Typical nE. Our defense went toe to toe with Brady and you can’t give them credit. At all. Sorry to say loser but other teams play well too. Brady looked like Mitch trubisky today

  28. Hey, Flash – your QB is done. I noticed the decline last year, but it’s full on now.

    D will have to carry you to a SB if you want another one; like PM’s last year.

    Helmet to helmet contact on a defenseless player…
    ————————————

    That ‘defenseless’ player was a runner at that point and lowered his head toward the contact as he fought for the 1st down. An unfortunate hit but hardly what you are describing at all. Allen showed more heart than smarts there

    The DBS head was UP!!!
    The crown of Allen’s helmet hit the SIDE of the DBs helmet

    The DB led with his shoulder

    Lame as usual

    Go look at his first 3 games this season and show me where he’s “done”

    Then look at his last 3 games in Buffalo counting today’s
    They all look the same.

    Josh was running to gain yards. Defense with the presence of mind lead with his head.

  35. Old man Brady looked old and confused. I hope more teams use the Bills’ passrushing blueprint going forward. And protect their QB’s heads from cheap shot artists.

  36. Josh was running to gain yards. Defense with the presence of mind lead with his head.


    Except the DB DIDNT lead with his head. AGAIN his head was UP

    Again, DID you NOT see the reply??????

    The crown of Allen’s helmet hot the DB in the side of his helmet
    The dB came in leading with his shout and it did NOT contact his helmet

  37. 4-0. 3-0 in division already. 122-27 PF-PA. Oh, and we get to see the Steelers drop to 0-4 tomorrow. Life is good.

  38. Breaking news for fake Pats fans, other Pats env ers, and possible Pats fans who believe the sky is falling.

    Pats offense was terrible today, and everyone contributed to the retchid stench. We have seen this before…it happens. You may have noticed, they usually figure out how to win more than they lose.

    Who do you think the Pats will be facing in the playoffs in January and February 2020?

    So that’s two, how many other people who clearly didn’t watch the game or so much as read the box score will be offering their (ahem) opinions on what did not happen?

  50. If the bills had atleast an average qb, they would’ve blown out the Patriots by 2 tds atleast. Brady was awful, looked like a washed up backup qb. Brady has played in the weakest division his whole career, getting a free pass to the playoffs every year. His division opponents haven’t had a good qb since the 90’s. Brady is the most overrated qb of all time. Everyone has to fight for a playoff spot except for brady. His division opponents are a joke. Every year, his division opponents are the worst teams, brady hasnt seen a good qb in his division since hes been a Patriot. Funny, the media never talks about that. They don’t want to tarnish their golden boys overrated career that was carried by a great defense every year, cheating scandals since the beginning of his career and his superbowls, rules that were created to protect brady and help him out with free first downs just for breathing on him, and helping him win when he struggles. He’s choked so many times in the playoffs and superbowl, I’ve lost count.
    Choked against Jake plummer and the broncos
    Choked against manning and the Giants twice!
    Choked against mark sanchez and jets
    Choked against manning and the Colts
    Chokes against manning and the broncos
    Choked against flacco and the ravens
    Choked against foles and the Eagles
    Should’ve choked against Seattle in the superbowl when Seattle should’ve ran the ball
    Should’ve choked against the falcons when they were getting blown out by three tds late in the game
    Should’ve choked against the chiefs when brady threw a pick to end the game but got saved by the refs
    Last superbowl against the rams, the defense won him the Super Bowl again, brady only scored 13 points! Lol
    Brady is a system qb with the same coach for 20 years lol. Anyone can win in that same system with a great defense and the refs on your side, and a free pass to the playoffs every year. All brady has to do is win two playoff games and hes in the superbowl every year in a weak afc. Only good team is the chiefs but their defense stinks. Brady is the most overrated qb of all time. If he played on Any other team, he’d be an average qb, and would be lucky to have one ring. How good would he have been, if he was with the Dolphins his whole career, or the jets, or bills, or raiders, or browns, or jaguars, or bengals, or titans, or lions, or the texans, he would’ve been a nobody, just an average qb with no rings. Thanks to belicheat, and his defense, and the referees, and cheating scandals, he’s an overrated protected system qb with success. He wouldn’t last in Montanas era, and would be lucky to have one ring.

  51. Yo, Flash – you guys are the ones celebrating the “big undefeated season” right now.

    We’ll see ya in a couple of months – and I’d wager that game will mean something. Can’t wait.

  53. Listen folks the Patriots won that game, however if that was TB that got his bell rung the DB would of been ejected on the spot.
    They clearly get better treatment from the refs and the ones that deny that are clearly in the clouds. The secret to success against the Patriots is to get TB off his mark from those quick throws. It is how Miami used to beat him and how the Bills almost did. Not the Patriots have a solid D so they won this game. But again, for those of you that do not think TB gets preferred treatment then you are just simply in denial.

    Oh brother. Just give it a rest. The Patriots are real scared.

  55. Jake Bailey, the punter, has been a terrific find for the Pats. His big kicks from the end zone and from inside the 10 yard line helped a lot. Ryan Allen was good from the mid-field but he did not have a big leg.

    The Bills defense gives them an excellent chance for a wild card berth, if the QB doesn’t screw it up.

  56. “Oh brother. Just give it a rest. The Patriots are real scared.”

    How’s that 4-12 prediction for the Bills looking, anyway?

  57. Brady exposed whenever he plays a good defense. He refuses to throw the ball down the field, he only wants to check down to rbs all day. Belly needs to bench him when they play good teams, or they will start to lose.

  58. I was there, great game. Met a a lot of Patriots fans. They always travel well. Both defense plays really well. I really don’t have many complaints against the calls. Rotten hit on Josh Allen, but kind of a bang, bang play. Brady I thought got away with another intentional grounding that should of been called. The one INT, guy from Patriots was in bounds both feet, but was juggling the ball, but it is what it is. Patriots are still great, the Bills will be there soon, they are up and coming. Allen had a tough game, that was part to maybe nerves and even more Patriots defense. Bills defense made Brady look pretty bad too. The difference in this game was not even the 3 INT’s by Allen, it was the blocked punt that killed them. The Bills outgained the Patriots in total offense, they just couldn’t close it out. Too many mistakes against a great Patriots teams that has the best coach of all time. But I am not sad at all about it, Bills are up and coming and have a great chance to make the playoffs, and the future is bright. Nice game Pats.

    When you get calls all game long like Buffalo, sure, you are going to look good.

    I will make a top 10 list later. You had Fouts and Steratore literally wanting to see things that weren’t even there the entire game.

    Just an appalling lack of professionalism and I especially love the phantom calls vs the Pats and CBS never shows a replay because they are afraid to.

    The game is a runaway but the officiating is abysmal as Goodell panics for parity.

    You need help Joe, just posted one time, and not even posted yet. Keep trying, I never reply back to Flash. Mine is about what a great game both defenses played. Keep trying though.

  62. @tylawspick6………Yes, the clown Patriot fan speaks. Even they don’t like you. Right the Refs were just awful right against your Patriots? Get a grip man. Both defenses played really well. You were not ripped off on any single play, ask other Patriot fans on this thread. Fact is Bills got beat, our defense shut your QB out, and fact is your good defense made Allen look like the rookie he really is, love my team, you can say what you want. We are close.

  63. “Brady exposed whenever he plays a good defense. He refuses to throw the ball down the field, he only wants to check down to rbs all day. Belly needs to bench him when they play good teams, or they will start to lose.”

    That’s hilarious. A good QB when his receivers are all covered checks down instead of tossing it up for a likely INT the way Allen did 3 times, and moves the chains. The Bill have a very good D that has been drafted specifically to make it hard for Brady. He’s hit plenty of long balls the previous 3 games when the defenses were not as good.

    Keep fooling yourself though about Brady. Its pretty funny

    There is no defending the hit other than to note that it was unintentional. Not dirty and its ridiculous to start with the cheating bleating. Its also ridiculous to try saying it gave or cost anyone the game. It was properly called as it deserved to be and no doubt jones will be getting ‘coached’ to be more careful and he is probably out a fat chunk of fine money this coming week. As he should be. Otherwise life goes on. Redskins up next.

    Patriots offense looks bad when playing a legit defense.


    Too bad they really do not play any. Easiest schedule in the league.

    If the bills had atleast an average qb, they would’ve blown out the Patriot………….etc. etc. etc..

    Wow. Just wow. That sounds more like someone trying to convince themselves than others. Is that your team up next week? See ya then.

  68. Hard fought game…. two very good D’s helped keep it OLD SCHOOL football…..Brady definitely had a crap game & Allen looked lost out there…..
    Glad the Pats pulled it off, their D is incredible!!!
    Go Pats!!!

    “Oh brother. Just give it a rest. The Patriots are real scared.”

    How’s that 4-12 prediction for the Bills looking, anyway?
    ————————————————————————————
    Let’s wait and see – the defense looks good, the QB looks like a rank amateur.

  70. Divisional rivalry games are either close games or complete blowouts. Don’t let the Patriots’ offensive struggles fool you today. This is the first time since 2015 they started out their September schedule 4-0. They’re usually off in this month. Coincidently, they haven’t played the NFC East since 2015 as well. Their offense will only get better with Watson back and Harry coming back soon.

    My hope is the Pats plane leaves from Buffalo and crashes in lake Erie, wouldn’t lose a wink of sleep.

    @tylawspick6………Yes, the clown Patriot fan speaks. Even they don’t like you. Right the Refs were just awful right against your Patriots? Get a grip man. Both defenses played really well. You were not ripped off on any single play, ask other Patriot fans on this thread. Fact is Bills got beat, our defense shut your QB out, and fact is your good defense made Allen look like the rookie he really is, love my team, you can say what you want. We are close.

    Thank you for recognizing Trollaw is not representative of long time Pats fans. In fact he has managed to get himself tossed out of the top Pats fan sites and his username on one has become a derisive term used for over the top homers. That’s why he posts here incessantly, he has nowhere else to spew his nonsense. Real Pats fans cringe at his stuff.

    Look for the twitter feed of McDermott chasing Belicheats son and another staffer off the field as they were spying on the Bill’s pre-game!!! Chip off the block, another cheater!!!! McDermott was not happy!

    saw the video, read the article.

    Warm-ups. You know, the stretching thing both teams do on the field at the same time???

    Visitors traditionally finish first. Brian Belichick was on his way to the tunnel and stopped to watch for a minute. What are they going to see, stretching techniques??? It’s not like they run any plays for God’s sakes. The Bills – like ALL teams – warm-up in front of 60,000 fans. AAnyone can see it.

    Much ado about nothing.

    Kudos to the Buffalo defense, they did an awesome job today. Brady had one off” game, he’s been his usual awesome self the previous 3 games. Not worried about getting old or falling off the cliff …. it was just one game.

  74. So is Brady more done than last year, when they were 1-2,or is it the same done? Who knew that there are so many variations of doneness. I’m not an expert on doneness but I thought done meant done. I could write a short story, but I’m done.

  75. Buffalo has the “blueprint”. I bet every defensive coordinator is on their phones as we speak. Who knew. Must be part of some master plan that our minds cannot comprehend. So all this losing is just a front. Makes sense… Say hello to Bigfoot for me.

    “Brady exposed whenever he plays a good defense. He refuses to throw the ball down the field, he only wants to check down to rbs all day. Belly needs to bench him when they play good teams, or they will start to lose.”

    That’s hilarious. A good QB when his receivers are all covered checks down instead of tossing it up for a likely INT the way Allen did 3 times, and moves the chains. The Bill have a very good D that has been drafted specifically to make it hard for Brady. He’s hit plenty of long balls the previous 3 games when the defenses were not as good.

    Keep fooling yourself though about Brady. Its pretty funny

    Sorry bud…thats called a game manager, which is all Brady is at this point of his career. Half his passes are to rbs, rarely goes beyond 3 yards. I wonder who is really fooling himself here?

  77. Keep in mind Patriots homers, your defense has still not played a legit offense. Wait until the last half of the year when you play the Eagles, Ravens, Chiefs, Cowboys and Texans. That defense won’t look so dominant.

    —————————————

    And this defense has given up 19 points the last 5 games. I don’t care who you play in the NFL but that is an impressive stat. I wonder what your excuse will be after the Pats face those teams. All you have are excuses.

  79. The list of teams you chose to beat the Patriots ummmmm 3 of them lost to weaker teams(2 had back-up QBs) and 2 played at home. You want another try or is that your final answer.

  80. Cracking me up how the Pats fans are trying to spin this. Buffalo clearly outplayed the Pats the entire game. The Pats defense was shredded by Buffalo, don’t confuse poor choices by a young QB as having a good defense. Had Allen not made bad choices trying to force the ball downfield this would have been a lopsided Bills win. Yes, those were mental errors, not good D by the Patsies. And yes, the refs mitigated every potential game changing penalty on the Pats with a phantom offsetting penalty on the Bills. Intentional grounding not called, interception on sideline should have been overturned, head of NFL refs agreed. Pick not called, Patriot player clearly tried to sweep his foot, how many flags thrown only to be told, there was no penalty on the play, come on, this isn’t the NBA. Wonder what the call would have been, had Brady been targeted with a helmet to helmet. BTW, stop saying there were two great defenses yesterday, there was clearly only on, the Bills.
