Josh McDaniels gets an earful from Tom Brady on sideline

And when it comes to allowing passing touchdowns, the Bills are among the stingiest defenses in the NFL.

The Patriots (10-2) didn't need Brady to be at his best to reach double-digit victories for the 15th straight season. A 44-yard Dion Lewis runs for the Patriots was the longest play of the half as Lewis was able to get deep into Buffalo territory thanks to a massive stiff arms safety Jordan Poyer.

Brady needed to simply stand aside and let the Patriots' rejuvenated rushing attack wear down the Bills in a game New England never trailed. After taking several snap in the Wild Cat formation, Joe Webb fired over the middle to a wide open Travaris Cadet, but the pass fell incomplete.

A third field goal of the half for the Patriots would make the score 9-3 going into halftime.

One positive from the first half has been the play of former Bill Eric Lee, who seems to be flourishing in his new haunts. He finished with 15 carries for 92 yards.

The second half was a different story offensively.

Reilly was injured on the opening kickoff of the second half last Sunday, as he collided with Dolphins running back Sinorise Perry. A highlight reel catch by Gronkowksi as he grabbed a ball over the head of rookie corner Tre White for 30-yards put the Patriots in striking distance.

Tom Brady completed 21 of 30 passes for 258 yards, while Rob Gronkowski starred in the second half as the Patriots won their 14th successive road game.

The New England Patriots took a seven-game winning streak into Orchard Park, New York, on Sunday as they faced the hungry Buffalo Bills.

The Bills' defense gave up points on both third-quarter drives and five of six possessions through the first 45 minutes, but it still appeared that the offense was more at fault for the state of the game.
