Big Second Half Powers Patriots To Win Over Buffalo
A statement may have been made by the New England Patriots on Sunday while visiting Buffalo. That statement: Don't count us out. At the beginning of the game at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday, it looked like the Patriots were down for the count. Buffalo was confident coming in, and had the lead going into the second half. They put together a 52-28 win.
Maybe the Patriots were just testing them, or maybe it took the first half to put it together, but New England came out in the second half ready to play. The Pats scored six straight touchdowns in th second half, and put up 31 points in the fourth quarter.
340 yards, and three touchdown passes for Tom Brady - who would also rush for a score. Stevan Ridley would rush for two touchdowns, and 106 yards. Brandon Bolden helped the ground game with 137 yards on the day.
Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 350 yards and four touchdowns, but also threw four big interceptions. Buffalo couldn't get much going on the ground, only rushing for only 98 yards total.
New England now sits at 2-2, and will next face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos next Sunday in Foxboro.
