Bills 14, Patriots 7 At Halftime: Big Plays Highlight First Half

Kevin Hoffman-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Bills have some big plays and some big blunders but hold a lead over the Patriots.

The Buffalo Bills had a golden opportunity at the end of the first half to go up by two scores on the New England Patriots. Instead, a C.J. Spiller fumble on the doorstep of the end zone allowed the Patriots to escape with a seven point deficit. They receive the ball at the beginning of the second half.

Both teams have turned the ball over several times. Rob Gronkowski and Wes Welker both fumbled for the Patriots after being stripped by Bills' defensive backs. Jairus Byrd and Bryan Scott recovered for Buffalo. Besides Spiller's fumble, Ryan Fitzpatrick has two interceptions. One of those picks was on a batted ball but the other was a badly underthrown pass on a fly route.

The Patriots have 222 yards of total offense to the Bills 210. Steven Ridley has 63 yards on 11 carries just a week after the Bills held the Cleveland Browns to 33 yards rushing.

Scott Chandler has both of Buffalo's touchdowns on passes from Fitzpatrick. Ridley scored the Patriots' lone touchdown.

This is your second half thread. We won't close comments until the game is over and the recap post is up.
