Buffalo drove deep into New England territory on its first series, but came up empty when Taylor threw an interception to Eric Lee at the 1-yard-line. 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.

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. They gained 191 of their 435 yards on the ground.

The running game has been strong, however, with both Dion Lewis (eight carries, 64 yards) and Rex Burkhead (four carries, 45 yards) breaking off lengthy runs.

Tyrod Taylor left the game in the fourth quarter with a knee injury and did not return. Coming into the first contest of the season between these two, the Patriots have led the league in offensive yards per game and led by Tom Brady, who leads the league in passing yards per game.

The New England Patriots took a seven-game winning streak into Orchard Park, New York, on Sunday as they faced the hungry Buffalo Bills.

LeSean McCoy had 93 of the Bills' 183 rushing yards.

Stephen Hauschka booted a 49-yard field goal as Buffalo trailed 9-3 at the half. He's now 29 for 32 on the season on field goals. This effort was particularly impressive because it came without leading sacker Trey Flowers, who missed the game with an injury to his ribs, and with linebacker Kyle Van Noy, who is usually an every-down player, playing a limited role. The Patriots signed Lee from the Bills' practice squad on November 21. Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore returned to Buffalo for the first time since leaving the team in free agency during the offseason.
