Patriots throw just three assists against Bills in blustery MNF win

ORCHARD PARK, NY – Damien Harris scored on a 64-yard run in windy conditions in which Mac Jones only attempted three passes, and the New England Patriots cemented their familiar place atop the AFC with a win from 14-10 on the Buffalo Bills on Monday evening.

Defensive back Miles Bryant sealed the victory by pushing back Josh Allen’s pass to the goal line with Buffalo facing the New England fourth and -14 at the 18 with 1:55 to go.

The Patriots leaned heavily on their rushing game, winning the Bills 229-99 in rushing yards, the cold, blustery snowy night negating Allen’s powerful pass offense.

New England (9-4) won their seventh straight game, improved to 6-0 on the road this season and now have a two-win lead over the Bills (7-5) in the standings. AFC Est.

Harris finished with a season record 111 rushing yards and opened the scoring on New England’s ninth game in scrum. Facing third and fifth, Harris burst into a gaping hole in the middle and was untouched on the way to the end zone.

The Patriots ran the ball 46 times against just three passing attempts.

As the Patriots faced wind blowing up to 40 mph, coach Bill Belichick pulled off a 2-point conversion with Brandon Bolden scoring just inside the left pylon.

The Patriots never hung out with Nick Folk scoring two field goals – both with the wind blowing their backs – at 34 and 41 yards.

The Bills continued their inconsistencies by losing four of their last seven games and haven’t won a back-to-back streak since going 4-0 from Sept. 19 to Oct. 10.
