Bills RB LeSean McCoy cleared concussion protocol and is expected to play. "The flow of the season and everything is bad", McCoy said following a 25-6 loss to the New England Patriots.

In the run defense department, the Patriots had one of their best performances of the season holding the Bills to 2.4 yards per attempt on the ground.

Having averaged 39.3 points over their previous four games, the Patriots (6-2) didn't reach the end zone until James White's 1-yard touchdown plunge with just under 10 minutes remaining.

Completing 652 of 1,013 passes (64.4 percent) for 7,798 yards and 68 touchdowns with 22 interceptions, Brady has compiled a passer rating of 101.1 against the Bills.

On the next snap, Anderson, already the victim of a third-period strip-sack by linebacker Kyle Van Noy which the Patriots recovered and turned into a field goal, didn't see New England safety Devin McCourty who picked off the pass down the middle and turned it into an 84-yard pick six that decided the game.

McCourty's pick-six came with 5:54 left in the fourth quarter and two plays after Bills tight end Jason Croom had a touchdown overturned when replays showed he bobbled the ball in the end zone.

Eight weeks of the National Football League season are in the books and the Buffalo Bills are still one of the worse offenses to ever step onto the field. So let's play the game before counting them out. "We couldn't get anything going in the red zone, not enough positive plays down there".

In fairness to the Bills, they kept Brady from attacking their vacated second level on most of these throws. The team will bench Gordon for about one quarter in its Week 8 matchup with the Bills.

Earl Campbell, one of two Hall of Fame running backs, along with Walter Payton, who inspired Thomas to wear No. 34, recorded a video message for the ceremony.

He became the third player in Bills history to receive the honour. "It belongs to the Bills fans everywhere". He was released on October 20 after reaching an injury settlement with the team.

The Bills offensive line has done a generally poor job of protecting their quarterbacks, starting with Nathan Peterman, the rookie Josh Allen and now Derek Anderson. He then attempted to block Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, but was - naturally - flattened right on his back.

With rookie running back Sony Michel out with a left knee injury, the Patriots leaned on Cordarrelle Patterson to help their ground game.

The Patriots now have a short week of preparation as they turn their attention to a tilt with the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.

Bills: Host the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
