BOSTON (CBS) – While the final score of 52-28 in favor of the Patriots might suggest Tom Brady and the offense turned in a dominant 60-minute effort, the fact is that Sunday’s victory over the Buffalo Bills was anything but a cakewalk.
Playing without starting left guard Logan Mankins and the most versatile receiving threat in the NFL, Aaron Hernandez, the Patriots had it stacked against them on Sunday. They made matters worse with two bad fumbles, two missed field goals and a handful of dropped passes, leading to a 21-7 Bills lead early in the third quarter.
From that point forward, though, it was all Patriots, as they went on a 45-7 run to close out the game and improve to 2-2 on the season.
