Patriots def. Bills (14-10) for 7th Straight Win Take Top Spot in AFC
A windy night in Buffalo and a rushing clinic for the Patriots. The Pats and Bills met on Monday night for AFC supremacy, and New England made NFL history with a bizarre plan of attack on offense. QB Mac Jones threw just three passes in the snow (2/3, 19 yards) while the Patriots ran the ball 46 times for 222 yards to avoid the windy conditions. The game saw just two field goals in the second half. Buffalo missed a field goal before an empty red zone trip down the stretch as the Pats’ defense held strong. One of the most bizarre offensive games of the season lifted the Patriots — once 2-4 to start the season — to 9-4 atop the AFC standings.
