It didn’t look good for New England early on.
After turnovers and missed field goals led to a 21-7 deficit early in the third quarter, the Patriots were able to make the right adjustments and pull of the comeback and thensome, beating the Bills 52-28 in a key AFC matchup.
The win ends New England’s two game losing streak, and avoids the team’s first three game losing streak in a decade. It also brings them back into a tie for first place in the division. It was also their best half of football this season.
