    Week 8. @Bills.

    Bills vs Pats. Game 2. This time it's on the road. The weather in Buffalo is in the low 50s with rain that is supposed to get heavier and continue into the evening.

    The game has massive playoff implications. A Pats win would give them a 3 game lead in the division. In addition, it would give the Bills 4 AFC losses, and that could be a crucial wildcard tiebreaker.

    If the Bills win, they are one game behind the Pats with the head to head tiebreaker secured. It would drastically help thier chances to make the playoffs, and keep alive chances to the the AFC East.

    The Pats notable inactives for today is LaAdrian Waddle.

    Bills notable inactives for today are Shady McCoy, Maequise Goodwin, and Aaron Williams.

    Go Pats!

    First Quarter:

    Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts have another Pats game. The Bills will get the ball first. We won the toss and deferred.

    The Bills start at the 25 after a touchback.

    1st and 10: Taylor to Clay on a playaction rollout for 2 yards.
    2nd and 8: Gillislee runs a sweep for 28. Excellent run.
    1st and 10: Gillislee up the middle for 3 and takes a hard hit.
    2nd and 7: Taylor has a while to throw, but throws too high to Hunter. Incomplete.
    3rd and 7: Tate on an end around. He gets 14. Wow.
    1st and 10: Taylor escapes pressure, and dumps it off to Felton for 22.
    1st and goal: Taylor escapes pressure again and throws it away. Hightower should have been called for a late hit out of bounds. Bills use a timeout.
    2nd and goal: Taylor keeps and gets no yards.
    3rd and goal: Taylor throws on the run, the ball goes off Bush's hands in the endzone.
    4th and goal: 23 yard FG is good.

    3-0 Bills. 11:05 left. They had an impressive drive.

    The Pats start at the 30 after a short kick and return by Slater. Slater fumbles but we recover it.

    1st and 10: Brady under pressure and throws it away.
    2nd and 10: 12 men on defense.
    2nd and 5: Brady to Jules for 9.
    1st and 10: Blunt dropped by Dareus for a loss of 2.
    2nd and 12: Brady on fast throw to Bennett for 6.
    3rd and 6: Brady to White for 8.
    1st and 10: Brady down the sidelines to Gronk, and it was caught out of bounds.
    2nd and 10: End around to Jules gets nothing. Slow end around.
    3rd and 10: Brady finds Hogan for 16.
    1st and 10: Blount up the middle for 1.
    2nd and 9: Blount up the middle, breaks a tackle, and gets 7.
    3rd and 2: Brady to Jules for 10.
    1st and 10: Blount up the middle for 4.
    2nd and 6: Brady with a screen to Gronk. Bills all over it for a loss of 3. Strange play call.
    3rd and 9: Brady escapes pressure and finds Danny for a 10 yard touchdown!

    7-3 Pats. 4:35 left. We made some strange play calls, but it all worked out in the end.

    The Bills start at the 6 after Bush chooses to return the kick from the endzone. There was a hold on the Bills on the return.

    1st and 10: Gillslee off the right side for 4.
    2nd and 6: Clay drops a short pass.
    3rd and 6: Taylor down the sidelines to Tate. Tate drops it.
    4th and 6: Punt. 3:49 left.

    Both drops were good throws. Clay and Tate let him down.

    The Patriots start at the Bills 46.
    1st and 10: Brady double play action, and finds White for 27. It comes back on OPI on Danny. It was the wrong call, Danny should have been called for a facemask.
    1st and 20: Brady throw away but holding on Blanton gives us a first down. I think Brady should have been called for grounding, which would have been offsetting.
    1st and 10: Blount up the middle for 2.
    2nd and 8: Brady with play action. Hughes knocks the pass down.
    3rd and 8: Brady escapes and throws deep! Brady finds Jules for 47! Comes back on ineligible downfield on Cannon.
    3rd and 13: But it doesn't matter!! Brady to Hogan! 53! TD!!! WOW!!!

    14-3 Pats! 1:33 left. We made sooo many mistakes this drive but we still made it count. Amazing.

    The Bills start at the 19 after a short kick and return by Bush.

    1st and 10: Giillislee gains 4 on a nifty little run.
    2nd and 6: Bush up the middle for 2.
    3rd and 4: Taylor dumps it off to Gillislee for 3.

    The second quarter will start with a punt.

    The Bills have played better than the score shows. But, we win the first quarter.

    3rd and 10: Brady sacked by Williams.
    4th and 10: We punt wth 14:05 left

    Sloppy drive. We need to run more. We can't just pass every play.

    Lorenzo Alexander is being worked on, possibly a hamstring injury.

    The Bills start at the 29.
    1st and 10: Taylor high to Powell, incomplete.
    2nd and 10: Nice run by Gillislee, he gets 8.
    3rd and 2: Taylor to Hunter for 6.
    1st and 10: Gillislee gets nothing on a sweep.
    2nd and 10: Taylor with play action to Bush for a gain of 17. It comes back on an illegal formation. 5 men in the backfield.
    2nd and 15: A screen to Bush gets 3. It comes back on OPI against Powell. Fouts calls it an iffy call and I agree.
    2nd and 20: Taylor to Clay. Devon nearly picks it off.
    3rd and 20: Low throw to Gillislee. It gets 6. Gillislee is limping,
    4th and 14: They punt with 10:25 left.

    Bills hurt themselves on the drive.

    The Pats start at the 18.

    1st and 10: Brady to Marty for a 2 yard gain.
    2nd and 8: Brady has forever to throw, but has to throw it away. Good defense.
    3rd and 8: Brady sacked by Brown.
    4th and 8: We punt with 8:45 left.

    We can't just pass every play. C'mon Josh!!!! 6 passes in a row. 2 yards. 2 sacks. Mix it up!

    The Bills start at the 42.

    1st and 10: Gillisslee darts up the middle for 10. It comes back on holding on Wood.

    2nd and 16: Tatylor to Felton for 3.
    3rd and 13: Taylor deep to Hunter. Pass defended by Rowe. Rowe called for PI. 29 yard gain.
    1st and 10: Taylor to Bush. 22 yards.
    1st and goal: 12 men on D. Pats use timeout #1 to get organized.
    1st and goal: Gillislee punches it in for a 3 yard TD.

    14-10 Pats with 6:26 left.

    The key to the game has been penalties. There have been a lot of them, but they have mostly been correct. Both teams have played sloppy.

    The Pats start at the 21 after Danny returns a deep kick.

    1st and 10: Blount up the middle for 4.
    2nd and 6: Brady to Hogan for 19,
    1st and 10: Blount makes a man miss on a sweep and gets 4.
    2nd and 6: Brady finds Gronk!! 53 yard TD!

    21-10 Pats. 4:18 left. See! Add some running, it slows down the rush.

    The Bills start at the 25.
    1st and 10: Taylor with a throw away.
    2nd and 10: Great run. Gillislee gets 16.
    1st and 10: Slow run. Gillislee gets 1. It comes back on holding on Wood.
    1st and 20: Taylor to Powell for 12. Nice catch.
    2nd and 8: Taylor escapes a sack and runs for 2. He got away from Nink.

    Two minute warning.

    3rd and 6: Taylor to Tate for 6. They give him the first, but it was close.
    1st and 10: Taylor deep to Hunter. Poor throw. Incomplete.
    2nd and 10: Taylor to Powell for 13. Powell hurt on the play, got off on his own,
    1st and 10: Taylor picked by Devon at the 7. Rowe called for defensive holding and Chung called for illegal contact. Bills keep the ball.
    1st and 10: Taylor to Woods, incomplete.
    2nd and 10: Taylor to Powell in the endzone. Incomplete, but Powell gives it a great effort.
    3rd and 10: Taylor to Woods, well off target. Incomplete.
    4th and 10: 49 yard FG is missed off the upright.

    The Pats start at the 39 with 27 seconds and two time outs. I'd kneel and end the half.

    1st and 10: Brady throw away under pressure.
    2nd and 10: Brady to White for 6.
    3rd and 4: Brady to Danny for 15. Pats call timeout 2 at the Bills 40. 7 seconds left.
    1st and 10: Brady to Gronk for 2. Pats call timeout 3 with 2 seconds left.
    2nd and 2: Steven comes out for a 51 yard FG try to end the half. He makes it!

    24-10 at the end of the half!

    Crazy game so far.

    2nd and 11: Brady to Julles, 7
    3rd and 4: Brady sacked by Dareus.
    4th and 9: 32 yard FG is made.

    41-17 with 7:06 left. The Bills hurt themselves a lot on this drive with 3 key penalties. If we get the ball back, we need a running game and Jimmy G.

    The Bills start at the 25 after a touchback.

    1st and 10: Taylor to O'Leary for 10.
    1st and 10: Taylor stopped for 0.
    2nd and 10: Taylor runs for 17.
    1st and 10: Gillislee up the middle for 6.
    2nd and 4: Butler drops a pick! Butler called for hands to the face.
    1st and 10: Throw away under pressure.
    2nd and 10: Williams gains nothing.
    3rd and 10: Taylor incomplete under pressure.
    4th and 10: Taylor under pressure and finds Woods at the marker. After the spot, the Bills are just short. Pats ball.

    Rex challenges the play. After review, the ruling stands as called. The Bills lose a timeout. They have two left.

    The Pats take over at the 23 with 4:29 left. Jimmy G is in.

    1st and 10: Blount gains nothing.
    2nd and 10: Blount gets nothing.
    3rd and 10: Jimmy sacked by Brown.
    4th and 23: We punt with 2:33 left.

    The Bills start at the 33.

    1st and 10: Williams for 3. Manuel is in the game.

    Two minute warning.

    2nd and 7: Wow! Powell with a great catch and he takes a massive hit by Harmon. Great play. 52 yards.
    1st and 10: Manuel goes back to Powell, but this time he drops it.
    2nd and 10: Manuel sacked by Flowers.
    3rd and 12: Manuel to Woods in the endzone. Rowe defends the pass, but is called for DPI. I disagree. Both guys were handchecking.
    1st and goal: Williams to the goal line. We call timeout #1 with :33 left.
    2nd and goal: Wlliams gets in. Note that Rex threw a challenge flag for the previous play after the snap. Rex is called for an illegal challenge which will be enforced on the kickoff. Under 2 minutes, coaches cannot challenge. The enforcement is a loss of timeout since the Bills have them left.

    The Bills go for 2. It's good.

    41-25 Pats. 30 seconds left.

    The Bills kick deep. We start at the 7 and can kneel it out.

    7-1! Whooo!

    We're rolling along. Go Pats!
