Patriots win eighth straight with 23-3 victory over Bills

Patriots rule out Trey Flowers, Trevor Reilly

RB DION LEWIS: On a first half carry, Lewis broke two tackles at the second level and accelerated to the sideline, where he promptly tossed Buffalo safety Jordan Poyer to the ground with a nasty stiff arm.

The New England Patriots announced their inactives on Sunday for their Week 13 matchup with the Buffalo Bills, and it included a little bit of good news.

New England failed to score a first half touchdown for the first time this season thanks to a passing game that hasn't fully hit its stride yet, as Tom Brady is only 8 for 14 for 96 yards.

Running back Rex Burkhead scored a pair of touchdowns after Stephen Gostkowski's three field goals had given New England the half-time lead. After picking up the first sack of his career in last week's game vs. the Miami Dolphins, Lee picked up the first interception of his career on the opening drive of the game.

The Bills' offensive inconsistencies were once again apparent, which was a reason coach Sean McDermott took what he called a "calculated risk" to bench Taylor in favour of Peterman in the first place.

The Railways issued the notice cancelling the trains following the high alert issued by the India Meteorological Department. Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor tweeted; "Some 450 Kerala fishermen on 80 boats missing at sea since last night".

The Bills managed four first downs and 102 yards of offence over their next six possessions before Taylor left the game. The former Buffalo Bills back will not get a chance to take it to his former team on Sunday. After taking several snap in the Wild Cat formation, Joe Webb fired over the middle to a wide open Travaris Cadet, but the pass fell incomplete.

Burkhead's first touchdown capped a methodical 10-play, 70-yard drive.

New England's nine points in the first half were the team's fewest in an opening half since a 16-0 loss to Buffalo on October 2, 2016. The result extended the team's road winning streak to 14 games and puts the Patriots one step closer to winning the AFC East championship. He was signed off the Buffalo practice squad on November 22.

The Bills return home on December 10 to battle the Indianapolis Colts.
