Patriots win eighth straight with 23-3 victory over Bills

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady looks to pass as Cameron Fleming blocks New York Giants' Owa Odighizuwa during the first half of a preseason NFL football game Thursday Sept. 1 2016 in East Rutherford N.J. (AP

Set up by a 27-yard precision pass from Brady to Danny Amendola on the sideline the Patriots would put the first points of the day on the board.

RB DION LEWIS: On a first half carry, Lewis broke two tackles at the second level and accelerated to the sideline, where he promptly tossed Buffalo safety Jordan Poyer to the ground with a nasty stiff arm.

He finished 17-for-25 for 205 yards. In a 12-9 overtime victory on December 16 of that season, wide receiver David Patten had fumbled along the sideline and was knocked out briefly on the play, but because his head was out of bounds and the ball was still touching him, the Bills couldn't recover it legally. After taking several snap in the Wild Cat formation, Joe Webb fired over the middle to a wide open Travaris Cadet, but the pass fell incomplete.

Add in a halftime adjustment to get tight end Rob Gronkowski (9 catches, 147 yards after having just 2 catches for 28 yards at the half) more involved in the second half, and that was the formula that helped produce a 23-3 victory at New Era Field.

The second half was a different story offensively.

Burkhead's first touchdown capped a methodical 10-play, 70-yard drive.

Sunday will mark Brady's fifth December game in western NY, with the first coming in 2001 and proving to be one of the most memorable. 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.

ABOUT THE BILLS (6-5): McDermott wisely went back to Tyrod Taylor at quarterback in Kansas City after the ill-fated decision to bench him for rookie Nathan Peterman, who threw five first-half interceptions in a 54-24 mauling at the Los Angeles Chargers. Following the victory for the Patriots they would improve to (10-2) and will go on to face the Miami Dolphins.

Perhaps with that game in mind, Brady said Monday on Westwood One Radio, "Going to Buffalo late in the season, it's always a tough place to play".
