The Buffalo Bills are still breathing, but barely. After a strong end to the first half, the Bills trail the New England Patriots by a score of 21-10.

After giving up three touchdowns to the New England Patriots to go down 21-0, the offense managed a touchdown with just over a minute left in the second quarter. Bryan Scott was able to stop a Patriots scoring drive late in the second quarter with an acrobatic interception. The Bills took over inside their 10-yard-line, but moved the ball into Patriots territory, where Rian Lindell booted through a field goal with a few seconds left in the half.

Seven penalties for 67 yards, including several dubious calls, have hurt the Bills in key situations, and two turnovers have limited the offense's ability to get on track - but their two minute offense has proven potent. (And I may have picked this picture for a reason...)

Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tom Brady are neck and neck in yardage, going over 200 apiece, but Brady's three touchdown passes trumps Fitzpatrick's lone scoring pass. Stevie Johnson has seven catches, and David Nelson is right behind him with six catches.

The Bills were able to mount a 21-point comeback last weekend at home against the Oakland Raiders. Can they repeat the feat this week against Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and the New England Patriots? We're about to find out. They get the ball to start the half, so let's go Bills!
