Buffalo 3-0: Bills Dump Patriots 34-31

Believe it or not, Tom Brady is not a cyborg.

The Bills learned this while intercepting him four times in a 34-31 victory on Sunday in Orchard Park, NY.

After torching defenses in the first two weeks, Brady matched his interception total from 2010 in one game including a pick six by Drayton Florence that put Buffalo ahead 31-24.

New England rallied back to tie it behind an incredible day from Wes Welker, who caught a franchise-record 16 passes for 216 yards and two touchdowns.

Ryan Fitzpatrick’s 369 yards passing helped end Buffalo’s 15-game losing streak to the Patriots, which dates back to September 2003 when the Bills beat New England 31-0.

Much work remains for the Bills. A 3-0 start is far from an automatic ticket to the postseason.

Since realignment in 2002, seven teams started 3-0 after beginning 0-3 the previous season. Four of them reached the playoffs.

One of those teams was the 2008 Bills. They started 4-0 and finished out of the playoffs at 7-9.

Buffalo visits Cincinnati next week and then plays three straight against NFC East teams.
