Buffalo Bills Give Up Lead, New England Patriots Tie It Up At 21

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

The New England Patriots may have been down 21-7 but after two consecutive scores by the Tom Brady-led offense, they have tied the Buffalo Bills at 21 apiece. Brady surgically tore apart the Bills defense through the air before lumbering into the end zone for a four yard touchdown scramble.

When his receivers were covered and the wall of Buffalo's defensive line parted, Brady saw his opening and took it, slowly falling into the end zone. A roughing the passer penalty on a below-the-knee hit by Kyle Williams brought the Patriots inside the Bills' ten a play before he found the end zone.

The scoring play had to be reviewed to see if Brady's knee was down before the ball crossed into the end zone. Despite a good angle, the referee determined there was no conclusive evidence and upheld the ruling of a touchdown.

Buffalo now gets the ball after surrendering their 14-point lead. How will they respond?
