Patriots announce inactives for Week 13 matchup with Bills

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead dives in for a touchdown as Buffalo Bills strong safety Micah Hyde and free safety Jordan Poyer try to stop him during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday Dec. 3 2017 in Orchard

The 59-yard drive lasted 6:21 before Gostkowski drilled his 50-yard kick, giving the Patriots a 3-0 lead. Only Jacksonville has given up fewer touchdown passes so the Bills will be looking to keep Brady and the gang grounded.

The New England Patriots were supposed to waltz into Buffalo and blow out the Bills on Sunday. It's also mitigated the loss of slot receiver Julian Edelman, who has been Brady's favorite target for years. New England's red-zone struggles popped up again. In other words, it was a game like many others between the two teams in which the Bills had a glimmer of hope before meeting the reality of the Patriots and losing again in the end. The NFL Odds for the game have the Patriots favored to pick up the win here.

The former totaled 15 carries for 92 yards on the ground.

Buffalo remains a long, long way from staying with New England, and the playoff drought could very well be old enough to buy a pack of cigarettes after this season.

The massive target was thrown at 11 times and caught nine passes for 147 yards in the team's 20-point win.


Still, it seemed a matter of time before Gronk, who had 28 yards receiving at halftime, asserted himself.

White was evaluated for a head injury after intercepting Brady late in the fourth quarter. The NFL's top tight end was mostly held in check in the first half, but he later reminded everyone why he is the most hard matchup in football.

Brady then cited the Bills' most recent game, a 16-10 victory over the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, where the Patriots were crunched 41-14 in the 2014 season in a game that sparked Bill Belichick's now-famous "on to Cincinnati" refrain. Signed off Buffalo's practice squad two weeks ago, Eric Lee made an immediate impact against Miami by recording a sack and four tackles. He was benched after Buffalo managed 99 net yards and four first downs through 55 minutes in a 47-10 loss to New Orleans on November 12. As a whole, the secondary was fantastic, limiting Tyrod Taylor and Nathan Peterman to a combined 115 passing yards.

Lee sacked Taylor on Buffalo's next drive as well, continuing the hot start to his career with New England.
