(ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.) — The New England Patriots were down against the Buffalo Bills 21-7 early in the third quarter, but by the end of the game, they had won 52-28.
After the Bills (2-2) scored on their opening drive in the second half, the Patriots proceeded to score 35 unanswered points.
“We were down 21-7, or whatever it was on the road, with our backs against the wall and I thought we showed a lot of heart,” Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said. “That’s what this team is made of. Were going to battle to the end.”
Brady had four touchdowns in the second half, three through the air and one on the ground.
The Pats (2-2) also had stellar performances from two of their running backs. Undrafted free agent rookie Brandon Bolden carried the ball 16 times for 137 yards and a touchdown, and Stevan Ridley rushed for 108 yards in two touchdowns in the win. It was the first time since 1980 that the Patriots had two backs rush for over 100 yards in the same game.
