Bucky Gleason's Hot Read: Patriots beat Bills in familiar song and dance

Setting up this year's Patriots-Bills matchup, Brady said on Westwood One, "They've got a lot on the line". Luckily, that did not matter. Against the Chiefs, the Bills combined for 81 yards and four first downs on five second-half drives. Dion Lewis and Rex Burkhead led the way on the ground, picking up 92 and 78 yards, respectively.

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.

Unfortunately, Gronkowski's final line of nine catches for 147 yards may have been overshadowed by a weird incident following Brady's interception.

White was evaluated for a head injury after intercepting Brady late in the fourth quarter. Ultimately, the play did not have any outcome on the game, but it was not a good look for one of the faces of the franchise.

He had an interception and 1 1/2 sacks and batted down a pass against the Bills, the same team that couldn't find a place for him while they were giving up 35 points per game during a three-game losing streak. No need to answer as Lee finished the afternoon with four tackles, 1.5 sacks. The undrafted rookie out of the University of South Florida saved his best performance for his old team. The 6-foot-3, 260-pounder stopped Buffalo's opening drive with a key goal-line interception. If Sunday was supposed to be a measuring stick game for McDermott's Bills, they fell well short of where they needed to be. Yes, that's the same Eric Lee who was plucked from the Bills' practice squad. Though he failed to live up to expectations early in the season, he has been worth every penny since returning from a concussion.

At that point, Brady had 206 yards passing while New England had 183 yards rushing in a balanced attack.

United Kingdom manufacturing 'shifted up a gear' in November
On past form, the output balance now is consistent with quarter-on-quarter growth in manufacturing output of about 1.2%. This suggests that capital spending, especially in the domestic market, is showing signs of renewed vigour.

NOTES: Patriots C David Andrews returned to action after missing two games due to illness. It's the second-lowest total allowed in the league next to Jacksonville's nine. Sunday's effort definitely left cause for criticism.

Amherst native Rob Gronkowski caught 9 passes for 147 yards in the win for New England, which has now won eight straight games. Give him credit on the play, but man, what a awful throw by Taylor.

Buffalo can keep their playoff hopes alive with a win, whereas New England can guarantee yet another double-digit win season if they pull it off.
