Patriots Quarterback Mac Jones threw only three passes but it was enough to earn the Pats a 14-10 win over the Bills. This victory means the Patriots move to 9-4 on the season and sit first in the AFC standings. They have now won 7 games in a row, after a 2-4 start. The Patriots rushed for 222 yards on 46 attempts, led mainly by a Damien Harris touchdown. The Patriots ran the ball on each of their seven third-down attempts, making good on two. Harris completed an impressive 64-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Harris’ touchdown was also the longest rushing touchdown for the Patriots in the regular since 1997. 

The three passes attempted by the Patriots are the second lowest since 1974. A scrappy affair throughout, the Patriots just about edged it in the end. Allowing rookie quarterback Mac Jones to throw only three passes, meant they had to rely heavily on their running game and defense. It worked out excellently in the end as the Patriots extended their winning streak.

Buffalo’s Struggles 

The Bills scored a touchdown in the first quarter on a 14-yard pass from Josh Allen to wide receiver Gabriel Davis.  Unfortunately the Bills were unable to capitalize on some of the late chances they created. Josh Allen threw incomplete from the New England 18-yard line with just less than two minutes to play. 

It was a difficult night for the Bills. One mistake after another and an inability to capitalize. They also failed to take advantage of a 15-yard punt by the Patriots in the first quarter. The Bills took possession at the New England 40-yard line but lost a fumble. 

“I’ve got to play better and be better for this team,”


Josh Allen ended the night with 145 yards and one touchdown on 15 of 30 passing. This defeat means the Bills drop to 7-5 on the season.
