Josh McDaniels gets an earful from Tom Brady on sideline

Josh McDaniels gets an earful from Tom Brady on sideline

Add in a halftime adjustment to get tight end Rob Gronkowski (9 catches, 147 yards after having just 2 catches for 28 yards at the half) more involved in the second half, and that was the formula that helped produce a 23-3 victory at New Era Field.

New England failed to score a first half touchdown for the first time this season thanks to a passing game that hasn't fully hit its stride yet, as Tom Brady is only 8 for 14 for 96 yards.

Though the Patriots are down to their third-string right tackle in Cameron Fleming, he hasn't been part of the problem yet.

Brady overflowed with emotion with about 1:24 remaining in the first quarter against the Buffalo Bills.

The running game has been strong, however, with both Dion Lewis (eight carries, 64 yards) and Rex Burkhead (four carries, 45 yards) breaking off lengthy runs.

After rushing for 193 yards a week ago versus Miami, the Patriots racked up 191 yards on the ground this week.

World's Biggest Battery Delivering Power in South Australia
Lithium-ion batteries have a greater charge cycle than conventional lead-acid batteries, and can respond within seconds. However, the battery is more likely to be called into action to stabilize electricity supplies at less critical times.

One positive from the first half has been the play of former Bill Eric Lee, who seems to be flourishing in his new haunts.

New England's 130 yards rushing in the first half were the most by the Patriots through two quarters since they had 141 in a 42-20 win over the Indianapolis Colts on November 16, 2014.

The Bills would receive their offense in the first half from an unlikely source in that of a special teamer and backup quarterback Joe Webb.

Taylor finished 9 of 18 for 65 yards and a costly interception on Buffalo's opening possession with the Bills facing first-and-goal at the Patriots 6. The Patriots' 14-play drive ended with a successful field goal attempt by Stephen Gostkowski after Brady overshot wide receiver Brandin Cooks in the middle of the field. Defensive tackles Kyle Williams and Adolphus Washington each sacked Brady in the red zone to force field goals.

This was Lee's second game with the Patriots.
