Bills’ Comeback Falls Short, Pats Win 40-32
Tyrod Taylor's fourth-quarter comeback attempt against the Patriots was too little, too late as the Bills fell 40-32 at Ralph Wilson on Sunday.
Taylor connected with Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods for TD's, and also ran for a 7-yard score leading the rally from what was a 37-13 game at the start of the fourth, to 37-32 with four-minutes remaining.
Tom Brady answered with a drive that chewed up 3:01 of game time, capping it with a field goal to make it an eight-point deficit with 1:18 left. But, on the first play from scrimmage, Taylor was intercepted to seal New England's 2-0 start. Brady spread the Buffalo's defense all game long, racking up 466-yards and 3 TDs. Julian Edelman caught two of those, and the third was Rob Gronkowski's - to go along with 113 receiving yards.
Taylor finished 23 of 30 for 242 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions. He also ran for 43 and a score. LeSean McCoy ran for 89 and caught three balls for 27 yards. Karlos Williams had a two-yard score on Buffalo's opening drive.
The Bills (1-1) play at Miami in Week 3. New England will host Jacksonville.
