New England Patriots Make It 28-21 To Start Fourth Quarter

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

Tom Brady found Rob Gronkowski for a touchdown to push the New England Patriots past the Buffalo Bills 28-21 early in the fourth quarter.

The Bills have forfeited a 14-point lead. To start the third quarter, Buffalo came out strong and pushed their lead to 21-7 but two Tom Brady scoring drives have tied the teams to start the fourth quarter.

The bigger issue for Buffalo stands along the offensive line as both right guard Kraig Urbik and left tackle Cordy Glenn have left the game with injuries. Urbik has been ruled out for the rest of the game. The Bills have no other linemen dressed. Other injuries have been sustained by Jairus Byrd and Marcell Dareus, though Dareus is trying to "gut it out" according to Brian Galliford at the stadium.

Brady's third touchdown pass of the day is a concern but another concern for the Bills defense is the Patriots run game. Both Steven Ridley and Brandon Bolden are over 90 yards apiece.
