    Ryan Fitzpatrick outplayed Tom Brady in Buffalo's divisional win

    In a matchup of undefeated division rivals, it was the Bills who came away with the upper-hand this time around. In their second meeting last year, New England demolished the Bills in a 35-0 shutout. Coach Bronc certainly had this match on his mind when he looked at the schedule, awaiting redemption. The Bills went up 7-0 early, and held the lead until a game delay midway through the second quarter (disconnect). After play resumed, the Bills came out charging. Fitzpatrick found Fred Jackson on a dump off and the veteran back outran the defense for a big TD. The following drive, a Patriots fumble was picked up by DT Henry Melton, who went stumblin', rumblin' and bumblin' 43 yards to paydirt, making it 21-0. The Bills added a few more TD passes and a FG to make it 38-0 by the end of the third quarter. The Patriots added a late touchdown, but it was too late to matter. The Bills now sit alone at the top of the AFC East at 3-0, and will next face off against the Bengals, who will be coming off a win against the always-tough Baltimore Ravens. In a bit of a scheduling oddity, the Week 4 game will be the 4th consecutive home game for the Bills. But after a Week 5 road game, the Bills will travel to Foxborough on Week 6 in a game that the Pats will certainly be looking forward to.

    Got my head handed to me on a silver platter. If it could go wrong, it did in this game. But I promise the next game will be a little harder for you.
