After a week of non stop chatter coming from Buffalo it was finally put up or shut up time. And after the first half the Patriots had shut up the Bills.
After the Bills drove down for an opening series touchdown, the Patriots took over and scored 21 unanswered from there. Touchdown passes to Gronkowski and Edelman sandwiched a rushing TD from he who shall not be named. That's Dion Lewis if you're Rex Ryan.
The Second half was more of the same as the Patriots opened up a 37-13 lead. But the Bills didn't give up. They showed some fight against the soft prevent defense the Patriots went into and pulled within 5 points before the Patriots offense kicked it into gear and put together a drive to ice the game.
Final score Patriots 40 Bills 32.
Last week the Bills crowd chanted "We want Brady, We want Brady" and they got him. Turns out the Bills just weren't ready for him.
