New England Patriots closing in on AFC East title

  • Bills QB Taylor exits with knee injury

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. A 50-yard Stephen Gostkowski would make it 3-0 New England going into the second quarter.

numberFire's models projected Burkhead for 10.1 FanDuel points and he popped off for 23.8 in Week 13. They gained 191 of their 435 yards on the ground.

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.

Search For Missing Argentine Sub No Longer A Rescue Mission, Navy Says
Authorities have said the level of maintenance, not the age, was what mattered, and that the vessel was in good condition. During the $12 million retrofitting, the vessel was cut in half and had its engines and batteries replaced.

Arguably the only thing overshadowing the Bills lack of offense was the absence of quarterback Tyrod Taylor who went down with injury. The result extended the team's road winning streak to 14 games and puts the Patriots one step closer to winning the AFC East championship. Lawson was carted to the locker room in the third quarter with a knee injury.

Rookie Nathan Peterman replaced Taylor and led the Bills to the 1-yard-line on his first series before turning the ball over on downs.

Stephen Gostkowski is a flawless 3 for 3 on field goal attempts, with a long of 50 yards in the windy conditions in western NY. The 44-yard run was the longest of Lewis' career.

Doeren agrees to new contract with NC State through 2022

Webb had three rushes for 27 yards, including a 22-yarder up the middle to open Buffalo's fourth possession. New England signed Lee, 23, off of Buffalo's practice squad on November 21. 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. The Patriots were also without sack leader DE Trey Flowers (ribs). Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore returned to Buffalo for the first time since leaving the team in free agency during the offseason. The fifth-round draft pick proved he wasn't ready two weeks ago, throwing five interceptions in the first half of a 54-24 loss at the Los Angeles Chargers.

LeBron James Ejected For First Time in Career
Match official Fitzgerald said he had ejected James because he had used "vulgar" language and was "aggressive" in his protests. Fitzgerald gave James a technical foul and then ejected him with 1 minute 56 remaining in the quarter.
