WATCH: Bill Belichick calls Rob Gronowski hit 'bulls***' to Bills coach Sean McDermott

At 2-2 earlier in the season it seemed the sky was falling for the New England Patriots.

Buffalo has regained some semblance of momentum following a 16-10 win at Kansas City, which snapped a three-game skid in which the Bills were outscored 135-55, and allowed 1,242 yards offense.

Brady then cited the Bills' most recent game, a 16-10 victory over the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, where the Patriots were crunched 41-14 in the 2014 season in a game that sparked Bill Belichick's now-famous "on to Cincinnati" refrain. The 28-year-old suffered a leg injury on the very first play of the game, and he was really never able to recover.

"I'm sure there are other people that can talk about other historical things and our team and the league and our players and all that, " Belichick said. Buffalo also lost ground in the wild-card race as it tries to end the longest postseason drought in North American sports at 17 seasons. The Patriots made a commitment to the running game and executed as planned, rushing for 191 yards and two touchdowns from Rex Burkhead while Brady threw for 258 yards and no TDs.

New England took control of the game by scoring touchdowns on consecutive possessions to start the third quarter. The Pats would have to settle for a field goal.

SUSTAINING DRIVES: The Bills' offense is still struggling to stay on the field under Taylor. The Patriots signed Lee from the Bills' practice squad on November 21. This time, it was Taylor throwing the ball directly into the arms of Patriots defensive end Eric Lee for an interception. We had three, three-and-outs, " coordinator Rick Dennison said. They now have to focus on winning their final four games, games they may have to play without their starting quarterback. "I don't necessarily put my mind on those comments".

NOTES: Patriots C David Andrews returned to action after missing two games due to illness.

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

The former totaled 15 carries for 92 yards on the ground. Two teams that are going in opposite directions and the pros discuss the best angles in this game.

It was a backbreaking turnover for the Bills, which received the opening kickoff. The Patriots were also without sack leader DE Trey Flowers (ribs).
