Bills beat AFC East rivals Patriots as New England’s offense bounced home

After losing two games in a row, it looks like the Buffalo Bills are starting to get back on track.

Sure, even last week’s win against the Detroit Lions was scary, but not three straight wins for the Bills after a 24-10 win over Thursday’s New England Patriots.

Buffalo, as we all know, didn’t quite clear things up on offense, but luckily the Pats’ offense was just as slow as they’ve been all season.

But that’s pretty standard for “Thursday Night Football” in 2022.

After the Patriots started the game with a three-out, the Bills knocked a field goal, but New England countered by taking a 7-3 lead with Marcus Jones’ 48-yard catch-and-run. Oh, and by the way, Jones is a corner player who plays mostly as a returning player on special teams.

Things went back to normal with the Bills’ next drive when Stefon Diggs caught an eight-yard field goal to give the Bills a three-point lead at the start of the second quarter. After being forced into another gamble, the Bills took a slow but steady drive and went just 56 yards in 14 games – but that ended with another eight-yard lead by Gabe Davis, with the Bills leading 17-7.

The Pats still didn’t do much offensively – they were again three-and-outs in their next two runs. However, they managed to save Josh Allen within two minutes of warning. They came within the field goal range as a sign of life, but Nick Folk’s field goal only hit the 48-yard crossbar—again, showing he was hitting fat, just like all of us with our irons on the golf course. Pats went back 10 to the locker room.

Both teams traded zeros in the third quarter, but the Bills took a long drive into the fourth quarter, taking a 24-7 Bills lead with Devin Singletary’s one-yard score.

Diggs led all receivers with a seven catch and score for 92 yards, while Allen finished 223 yards from the air, completing 22 of 33 passes. This was also a sort of exit party for rookie James Cook, who had 14 throws at 64 yards and a catch of under 41 yards.

Yet Mac Jones threw just 195 yards—68 of which came in the Pats’ final drive of the game, essentially in trash time.
