"This is why we're here to play in games like this".

Michel, too, was running with a objective. However, their penultimate offensive play put them back on their heels, as Allen was swarmed and took a sack. The Bills moved the ball only 14 yards on seven plays. Even though it appeared to be grounding, the refs said that Rex Burkhead was in the area.

Against the second-ranked Bills defense, Brady was fiery in leading the Patriots to a 24-17 victory.

And no, the Patriots aren't dead yet. They now trail the high-flying Baltimore Ravens, but there's a chance. Should New England defeat the lowly Dolphins they'll earn a first-round playoff bye.

It's been 24 years since Buffalo's last AFC East Crown.

He left the game to be tested for a head injury, returned in the fourth quarter and had an immediate impact, catching a 30-yard pass on his first play back. However, the team was already without the services of cornerback Jonathan Jones for Saturday's game. The other touchdown went to Matt LaCosse. New England's defense forced a Bills three-and-out, and the Patriots offense responded with another touchdown. Winning the division title is nice, but the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots are always playing competing for much bigger goals. Tom Brady only had 128 passing yards, but he did throw two touchdown passes, as the Patriots ran away with the game late. Brady, at age 42, isn't the passer he was at 32, but he's still elite. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes Edelman will play on Sunday. "He works hard, he makes plays on the ball". Patriots defensive defender Jason McCourty, who missed the game last week, left the game after aggravating a groin injury. But McDaniels did a great job of keeping the Bills' defense off balance.

We're not trying to knock Brady, of course, but Vivian's artwork had raked in nearly 100,000 more likes than the original photo as of Friday morning. He rushed 21 times for 96 yards, including an outstanding 25-yard run in which he ran through a tackler.

Allen connected on two passes before dropping one in on Dawson Knox for 33 yards; although it was originally ruled a touchdown, replays showed he was brought down at the 1. But Edelman fought through the pain and made several tough, important catches. First, he wasn't able to dive for the pylon on a key third-down catch, coming up just short. In the end zone. In that game he threw two interceptions but did have a touchdown. The Patriots quarterback stood in the Patriots' end zone after starting a drive on the 1-yard line.

BUT BUFFALO, which already owns impressive road wins at NFC East leader Dallas and Pittsburgh (8-6), would like to stem its almost two-decades of futility against the Patriots. But a failed attempt in quarters and inches with 36 seconds remaining gave the Bills one more chance before the break. Great fourth-quarter drive offensively, and defensively big stop there at the end.
