16-0 Buffalo Bills.
Who would’ve guessed the Rex Ryan would’ve shut out the New England Patriots, let alone win in Foxboro. It was an impressive win for him, and the Bills now hold their heads high as they improve to 2-2.
For the Patriots however, there weren’t many great things to say about this game, so why not get through the good first before the bad:
- LB Dont’a Hightower may not be 100%, but his presence on the field early was evident. On the Bills first play of the day, he drove a Bills WR into an offensive lineman which changed the direction of McCoys run. Hopefully he is able to recover quickly.
- TE Martellus Bennett continues to show why the Patriots traded for him. He was the best thing about the offense with
- The Patriots defense held the Bills to just 3 points in the second half. Thats impressive despite losing 16-0. With Brady at QB, one would have to assume he would’ve gotten the lead at least.
And that’s about it.
There wasn’t much for the Patriots to be proud about this game as this was probably one of their worst losses under Belichick despite not getting blown out.
