Final stat line for the winning QB, Mac Jones: 2 for 3 for 19 yards, 0 TD 0 INT with 4 rushes for 1 yard. Brilliant.
Odds Across Sportsbooks
Bill Belichick out-coached Sean McDermott on national TV by running a 6 OL, triple-option offense a la Navy Midshipmen football. Absolutely brilliant.

If not for a muffed punt by N'Keal Harry, the Patriots win a game comfortably in which they asked their quarterback to throw three forward passes. In real life. In 2021. That was a WILD one.
J.C. Jackson was outstanding tonight. That was one of the best games of his career.
#Patriots are activating LB Jamie Collins off IR, per his agent @davidcanter, and he will be available for tonight's pivotal matchup vs. Buffalo.
Nick Folk says the team made a decision that the 10-yard line and in was the range to the closed end to the stadium. He noted the 55-yarder he hit in warmups to the other side of the field when comparing the difference. pic.twitter.com/3mnBkVFeek
Patriots injury update: DB Adrian Phillips (knee) is out.

Fourth-and-14, Kyle Dugger (COVID-19 list) and Adrian Phillips (injured previous play) are both out, so Myles Bryant is on the field to break up the pass for the potential game winner. Peeled off his route to get underneath the throw and force the turnover on downs.
Kendrick Bourne just took his helmet off, stood on the chalk in the end zone, threw his arms out, and soaked in whatever Bills Mafia was yelling at him.
Brandon Bolden on what was going through his mind when he saw the pylon on the two-point play. "Please, I hope I make it." And after he got there? "Makes an old man happy."
That call...just not sure what Myles Bryant is suppose to do. Allen is still in the field of play angling for a first down. #Patriots #Bills pic.twitter.com/0tGHYuvhkE
Jake Bailey was trying to punt the ball 50 yards to Gunner Olszewski. Instead, it went 70 yards. Tonight is going to be fun.
NT Davon Godchaux led the Patriots defense, limiting the Bills to their worst inside the tackles run performance of the season (-14 RYOE). Godchaux recorded a 56% run tackle rate, the highest for a NT in a game in the last 6 seasons (min. 10 run snaps). #NEvsBUF | #ForeverNE pic.twitter.com/vaiorCPhsP
Patriots OLB Matt Judon is in the midst of a career year, but he keeps crediting his teammates with his big plays. My latest for @PFF on Judon's historic sack season and New England's marriage of coverage and pass rush: pff.com/news/nfl-patri…
Bill Vinovich has come on the referee's microphone and said "71 is eligible" a total of nine times to date (50% of their offensive snaps). Bringing on OL Mike Onwenu as a 6th blocker up front reflects their bully-ball approach.
Stevenson rushed 24 times for 78 yards in Monday night's 14-10 win over the Bills.
Stevenson was heavily relied upon amid extremely windy conditions as well as an injury to teammate Damien Harris (hamstring). Although Harris still managed 10 carries for 111 yards and a score, he was limited to just one handoff in the second half, clearing the way for Stevenson to lead the backfield. Despite consistently facing stacked defensive fronts with the Pats throwing merely three times all game, hurting his efficiency, Stevenson again showed impressive glimpses of his athletic, physical running style, helping New England win in spite of Monday's unusual circumstances. While now entering the bye week will give Harris some time to heal, if he's restricted once the team reconvenes ahead of Week 15's matchup versus the Colts, Stevenson would figure to remain the chief beneficiary.

With a proud faith in God, a baby on the way and legendary coach Bill Belichick in his corner, Patriots touchdown machine Hunter Henry is confident of taking his game to new heights in New England.
Kyle Van Noy knocks down another pass - this time on third down. He's a ballhawk.
Daniel Ekuale with the sack. That's his second in three games with the Patriots.

Zack Moss is active. I'd expect him to get the bulk of the work tonight. He was great vs. NE last year.
As Micah Hyde was leaving the podium, he had this to say to WIVB reporter Jerry Sullivan, who asked the question about the Bills run defence. pic.twitter.com/Qigk975fzl
The Buffalo Bills’ rushing attack hasn’t been very good throughout the 2021 season… but it’s slightly improving.
One consistency in it has been running back Devin Singletary.
The third-year pro has been in the lineup throughout the year. Meanwhile, Zack Moss has been in and out of the lineup as a healthy scratch, alternating in recent weeks in favor of veteran Matt Breida.
But Singletary did not blame rushing attack struggles on any single player or aspect of the offense

#Bills inactives vs. Patriots: BOTH Marquez Stevenson and Isaiah McKenzie. Reggie Gilliam, Efe Obada, Jamil Douglas & Vernon Butler are also inactive. With the wind conditions it's likely the Bills just want somebody back there to catch it. Could be Matt Breida and Micah Hyde.
Gabriel Davis continues to give the Bills reasons to put him on the field far more often.
It's beyond obvious at this point that the #Bills simply aren't good enough at the line of scrimmage on either side of the ball. Sean McDermott likes to think of his team as being physical ... but it's not. It gets pushed around far too often.
That was an insane throw from Josh Allen but level of difficulty on the catch was off the charts for Stefon Diggs. Would have been unreal highlight.
Matt Milano seems to have discovered the Patriots are trying to run the ball.

Andrew Thomas on Jake Fromm: "We won a lot of games together. Excited to see him get his opportunity." They were teammates at Georgia for three years.
Bills RG Daryl Williams has been cleared to return and was already back in the game. #Bills
Prior to tonight's game, the Bills have placed LB A.J. Klein on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Maybe he should worry about Tremaine Edmunds being terrible on the play.

#Bills CB Dane Jackson expected to be in for Tre'Davious White (ACL), out for the season, vs the #Pats MNF. Jackson, the 2nd-yr player has only 15+ defensive snaps on 2 occasions this season. Heard he's worked all wk long to prepare, but will have to get experience on the job.
When the Patriots brought on a 6th OL, the Bills sent on Tyrel Dodson for Taron Johnson
