Bills vs. Patriots: Tyrod Taylor hurt in blowout loss (10 observations)

Bills vs. Patriots: Tyrod Taylor hurt in blowout loss (10 observations)

Sparked by Eric Lee's interception to thwart the Bills' impressive opening drive in the end zone, the unit held quarterback Tyrod Taylor and running back LeSean McCoy in check to continue its impressive momentum.

Late in the game, Rob Gronkowksi, apparently frustrated by the absence of a pass interference call, dove on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White and elbowed him in the back of the head after the whistle.

Rex Burkhead rushed for 78 yards and two touchdowns and Dion Lewis rushed for 92 yards. Gronkowski had 147 yards receiving, the most he's had this season, and was a complete turnaround in the second half, as was the rest of the New England offense. The 44-yard run was the longest of Lewis' career. Gronkowski drove his shoulder as he lay face down on the turf after the whistle and was penalized for unnecessary roughness. Rookie Nathan Peterman would replace Taylor at quarterback following his knee injury.

He finished 17-for-25 for 205 yards.

Never in my career, on or off the pitch, was I disrespectful about what they believe they have to do to beat me. And nine points from those games will be a must, if they are to remain in the title race.

New England took control of the game by scoring touchdowns on consecutive possessions to start the third quarter. With over 30-all objective yards on the drive to be capped off by a 14-yard rushing touchdown for Burkhead would extend the lead even further in the Patriots favor making it 23-3.

New England gained 212 yards in the first half, but could only manage three Stephen Gostkowski field goals (50, 31 and 39 yards) to build a 9-3 lead. The Pats would have to settle for a field goal. 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. He was signed off the Buffalo practice squad on November 22.

Of course, this isn't the first time a sex toy has found it's way onto the field in Buffalo.
