FOXBORO — Tom Brady is not about to use the injury bug as a reason for the relative struggles the last three weeks offensively.
In wins over the Redskins, Giants and Bills, the Patriots have scored 27, 27 and 20 points. Those numbers aren’t bad but to the naked eye, the mounting injuries to offensive weapons might finally be catching up.
FOXBORO — The Bills did almost everything in their power to beat the Patriots Monday night.
Buffalo held the Patriots to 20 points, a season-low.
Buffalo held Tom Brady to 20-for-39 (51 percent) passing for 277 yards with a touchdown and an interception, but the last time the quarterback was that frustrated by a defense was when Kansas City manhandled the Patriots last September.
Buffalo also rushed for 94 yards against the Patriots, the second-best run defense in the league and won the time of possession battle 32:55-27:05.
In other words, the Bills checked off a lot of boxes needed to beat the Patriots but couldn’t get it done, as the Patriots came out on top 20-13, which in the end signifies the Patriots are clearly the more superior team.
“But, like always, we’ve come up short many times being here when you think you...
FOXBORO — There was no doubt Monday night that Bill Belichick and his staff likely took some deep breaths as they saw Tom Brady take as much abuse in the pocket as he ever has in a regular season game.
On night when the wind chill dipped down to 21 degrees, Brady stood in the pocket and took 10 official hits (though ESPN had the figure closer to 15 by game’s end).
Brady finished 20-of-39 for 277 yards, a far cry from the 466 yards he torched the Bills for in Week 2. Rex Ryan wanted his defense to do a better job on Brady this time around. Ryan wanted Brady to pay the price every time he dropped back in the pocket to pass, and for the most part they did.
From the moment that linebacker Nigel Bradham leveled...
FOXBORO — In the grand scheme of things, it was a play that in the end didn’t matter as the Patriots were able to win the game, but it was the play that received the most attention in the game.
With 14:05 left in the third quarter of the Patriots’ 20-13 win over the Bills Monday night, Danny Amendola made a catch near the Bills sideline that appeared to be going for a sizable gain, but Amendola suddenly stopped because there was an inadvertent whistle on the play.
By rule the play was blown dead where the receiver caught the ball, which in Amendola’s case was only a 14-yard gain.
Following the game, referee Gene Steratore spoke to a pool reporter and explained what happened on the play.
“I think as the quarterback started to get near the sideline and press the line judge, who was the official right near the quarterback, [Gary...
