ORCHARD PARK Chris Ivory Jerseys 2019 , N.Y. (AP) — Devin McCourty was pleased that the New England Patriots defense didn’t have to play second fiddle to Tom Brady and Co. for once.With the Patriots leaning more on Stephen Gostkowski’s leg than Brady’s arm against the Buffalo Bills on Monday night, McCourty stepped up and returned an interception 84 yards to secure a 25-6 victory.“The last couple of games it was our offense scoring and us trying to keep the team out. This was a game where they were moving the ball and couldn’t get into the end zone,” McCourty said. “We had to make sure Buffalo didn’t get in the end zone, and once it cracked, we had to take advantage of it.”Article continues below ...The interception proved to be the turning point in what had been a tightly contested game in which New England settled for four Gostkowski field goals, and after James White scored on a 1-yard to make it 18-6 with 9:58 left.The Bills responded with what was initially ruled a touchdown, when tight end Jason Croom appeared to make a diving, one-handed catch in the end zone. The 25-yard catch was negated when replays showed Croom never had possession.Two plays later, McCourty jumped in front of Derek Anderson’s attempt to hit tight end Charles Clay over the middle.“Those are bonus points. It’s hard to count on those,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. “It was a big play for us. They were driving in the red area and it turned it around.”Buffalo lost its third straight and dropped to 2-6 for its worst start since opening the 2010 season with eight losses.The Bills offense continued its anemic ways in being held to under 7 points for the fourth time this season — once more than that’s happened from 2013-17. Buffalo has scored just two touchdowns in its past five outings, a stretch in which it has been outscored by a margin of 116-37.Running back LeSean McCoy took the offense’s struggles personally. Though he had a team-best 82 yards receiving, McCoy finished with just 13 yards rushing and has yet to score this season.“I’m 30 years old. I’ve been playing since high school. This stuff has never happened to me. Yeah it’s tough,” he said.What hurts more is McCoy knowing how the offense has let down the defense.“It’s not fair to them White Jeremy Kerley Jerseys ,” he said. “I didn’t expect to have no season like this. I’m not really playing well at all. We’re not doing much on offense.”Credit the Bills’ defense for not playing the role of the expected pushover against a Brady-led offense that had scored 38 or more points in each of its past four games.“You come out and you hold those guys to one touchdown and still can’t get a win. It’s tough, man,” Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White said.Stephen Hauschka accounted for the scoring by hitting field goals from 51 and 47 yards.“It’s clearly not good enough,” coach Sean McDermott said of his sputtering offense. “I thought the defense came out and played well at times. Offensively, we shot ourselves in the foot a little bit there, and just couldn’t get it going enough.”Anderson finished 22 of 39 for 290 yards and two interceptions.He was escorted off the field with 1:25 left when he was sacked by Kyle Van Noy. He was making his second start in place of rookie Josh Allen, who’s listed as week to week with a sprained elbow on his throwing arm.Brady finished 29 of 45 for 324 yards, but was held without a touchdown pass for the first time this season.“They made it tough on us,” he said. “We couldn’t get anything going in the red zone, not enough positive plays down there.”Brady continued his string of career-long dominance over the Bills by improving to 29-3, extending the NFL record for most wins by a quarterback against one opponent.The Patriots beat Buffalo for the seventh straight time and improved to 32-5 in their last 37 meetings under coach Bill Belichick.HONORING THURMANThe highlight for Bills fans was a halftime ceremony in which the team retired Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas’ No. 34.He became the third player in Bills history to receive the honor. Jim Kelly had his No. 12 retired in 2001, and Bruce Smith’s No. 78 was retired in 2016.With the lights turned out at the sold-out stadium, highlights from Thomas’ Hall of Fame career were shown on the video scoreboard while two spotlights projected 34s onto the field. “When I look up and see the No. 34 retired under my name Jeremy Kerley Jerseys 2019 , I’ll be reminded that number doesn’t just belong to me,” Thomas said. “It belongs to the Bills fans everywhere.”PRYOR VISITThe receiver- and quarterback-needy Bills had free agent Terrelle Pryor in for a visit earlier in the day. Pryor is a seventh-year player who was released by the New York Jets on Oct. 20 with an injury settlement after hurting his groin.INJURIESPatriots: Rookie RB Sony Michel (left knee) and starting LB Dont’a Hightower (knee) were inactive.Bills: Rookie starting middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds did not return in the second half after being diagnosed with a concussion.UP NEXTPatriots: Prepare for a Brady-vs.-Aaron Rodgers showdown, hosting the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.Bills: Host the Chicago Bears on Sunday. The Buffalo Bills travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts, who have already been eliminated from the playoff race.The Bills, at 6-6, still have a glimmer of hope for an AFC wild-card slot. The Bills can ill-afford a slip up versus the Colts and could be handcuffed on the road without quarterback Tyrod Taylor.Taylor was injured in the 23-3 loss to the New England Patriots last week. Although the injury was not severe to his knee, the mobile quarterback was hampered enough to be unable to finish the contest.In most cases, Indianapolis’ defensive-minded head coach, Chuck Pagano would work on two defensive game plans: one to stop Taylor and the other to focus on rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman. But since neither quarterback has played particularly well this season, Pagano and his troops will focus their attention on stopping Bills running back LeSean McCoy.McCoy has rushed for 851 yards on the season, which ranks sixth in the NFL. He is tied with New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram with nine rushes over 20 yards.Buffalo’s run game averages 122 yards an outing and is ranked eighth in the NFL. Indianapolis will have to limit the explosive runs by McCoy and attack the football. McCoy has fumbled three times this season.Turnovers have stagnated the offense all season. Whether they are fumbles or interceptions, the Bills’ offense is struggling and will need to right the ship in Indianapolis.“It’s frustrating, yeah White Micah Hyde Jerseys ,” McCoy said. “We had opportunities to capitalize on them earlier in the game. Not sure if that will make a difference between win or loss, but it will sure help it out. We were driving. Running, throwing, running, throwing. Then we had a turnover that hurt us.”This quote came after the loss versus the Patriots but could have been after almost any Bills’ game in the 2017 season.Whomever plays for the Bills at quarterback could be primed for a huge game if they can manage the game effectively and efficiently. The Colts are without their starting cornerbacks. Rashaan Melvin is out with a hand injury and Pierre Desir was placed on injured reserve this week with a torn muscle in his shoulder.The Colts will have to depend on Quincy Wilson, Nate Hairston and Kenny Moore, all of them rookies, as the team faces the Bills. The trio struggled mightily in the loss to Jacksonville in Week 13.Buffalo’s offensive coordinator Rick Dennison needs to find a way to get a semblance of a passing attack going against the injury-ravaged Colts secondary.The Bills also have a defensive-minded head coach in Sean McDermott. The Bills defensive unit has been Jekyll and Hyde this season. If McDermott wants to make the playoffs in his initial season as a NFL head coach, he will need the defense to play the good role the rest of the schedule.The Colts enter the game fighting simply for pride at 3-9 and quarterback Jacoby Brissett is looking to simply make it out of the season in one piece. The former Patriot has been hot and cold in terms of production but has taken a beating behind a below average offensive line.“Jacoby is tough. It’s possible all the hits he’s taken this year have begun to take a toll,” Pagano said. “(But) you keep going. You keep playing. That’s what you do, because you love ball.”Getting pressure on Brissett will be the key for a Bills defense that ranks 27th in the NFL, allowing 361.6 yards per game. While this sounds like an easy task, Buffalo is tied with Sunday’s opponent Micah Hyde Jerseys 2019 , the Colts, producing only 20 sacks on the season. The only team with fewer is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with 17.With the season lost for Indianapolis, the team will look to ride running back Frank Gore’s legs in the last four games. Gore is 19th in the NFL in yards with 632. While the former San Francisco 49er is averaging a career-worst 3.6 yards a rush, Gore is currently fifth in NFL history in total rushing yards with 13,697 yards. Gore is 404 yards behind fourth place and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Curtis Martin.Tight end Jack Doyle was asked about having Gore as a teammate.“He’s the ultimate competitor, the ultimate pro, he’s the man,” Doyle said. “He’s Frank Gore.”
