Patriots at Bills: Highlights, score and recap

BEN VOLIN  GLOBE STAFF

Having apparently been kept in the dark since being drafted by the Bills, rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White was genuinely curious about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's career-long dominance of Buffalo.

Of Buffalo's 10 passing touchdowns allowed this season, seven have come in the red zone.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick is the master when it comes to dismissing the past, whether coming off a win or loss, by insisting he's focused exclusively on the next opponent.

This was Lee's second game with the Patriots.

"Yeah, I didn't really see what happened on the whole play", Belichick said when asked if he's concerned over any potential discipline resulting from the play. "We're trying to get ready for Buffalo, and that's a big task".

New England took control of the game by scoring touchdowns on consecutive possessions to start the third quarter. The NFL's top tight end was mostly held in check in the first half, but he later reminded everyone why he is the most hard matchup in football. The Patriots signed Lee from the Bills' practice squad on November 21. We had three, three-and-outs, " coordinator Rick Dennison said.

JOB SECURITY: McDermott won't commit to Taylor starting beyond this weekend, while saying he has full confidence in his quarterback.

With the passing game (outside of Gronk) taking a back seat, the Patriots proved they can grind out a win on offense by leaning on their running game. "I don't necessarily put my mind on those comments".

If there is one area where the Patriots have struggled all season, it is stopping the run.

After a slow start this year, he has become New England's most consistent threat out of the backfield.

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. Two teams that are going in opposite directions and the pros discuss the best angles in this game. In a 12-9 overtime victory on December 16 of that season, wide receiver David Patten had fumbled along the sideline and was knocked out briefly on the play, but because his head was out of bounds and the ball was still touching him, the Bills couldn't recover it legally. The Patriots were also without sack leader DE Trey Flowers (ribs).
