ThePatriots were knocked from their undefeated perchSunday, as the Buffalo Bills delivered New England its first lo s of the season, 16-0, in Foxboro. It is just the second time since 2009 the Patriots have lost to an AFC East team at Gillette Stadium, and the first time theyve been shut out at home since 1993.FWIW, Patriots haven't been shutout since Dolphins in 2006, and haven't been shutout at home since Jets in 1993 Ben Volin (@BenVolin) October 2, 2016The Patriots fall to 3-1, but had you Adam Shaheen Jersey asked them before the season if they would have taken a 3-1 start, they probably would have said yes.Tom Brady returns from his four-game suspension next week, when New England visits the Browns.Its just the second time the Bills have won at Gillette Stadium since it opened in 2002. They are now 2-13 in the Patriots digs.MORE: Bills-Patriots stats, highlightsAs evidence of how much this game meant to the Bills, they started a scuffle before the game even started, as safety Robert Blanton bumped Pats QB Jacoby Bri sett before wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell intervened and several other Bills joined the fun.The Bills, practically left for dead after an 0-2 start, have won consecutive games against worthy foes. They took care of the Cardinals in Buffalo last week, 33-18. Next Sunday, they are at the Los Angeles Rams.Sundaywas a performance the Patriots hope to forget. They were dominated on both sides of the ball, as Bills QB Tyrod Taylor orchestrated multiple succe sful drives and New England had trouble doing anything of significance offensively. Bill Belichick was hesitant to throw the ball with Bri sett, who Kyle Fuller Jersey attempted just three pa ses in the first half.That Bri sett would start was not clear until a few hours before the game, when Jimmy Garoppolo was ruled out.PHOTOS: Must-see Week 4 imagesBuffalo took a 13-0 lead into the half. The Bills had 16 first downs in the half to New Englands two, and outgained the Patriots, 251-98, before the break. Jonathan Bullard Jersey The few occasions the Pats were able to get the ball into Bills territory ended in disappointment. With about 5minutes to go in the second quarter, Bri sett scrambled to the Buffalo 10-yard line and an apparent first down but fumbled upon beinghit by linebacker Zach Brown.On their first drive of the second half, Bri sett nearly connected for a 31-yard touchdown pa s to Brandon Bolden, but the running back dropped the ball at the goal line.Then, Stephen Gostkowski mi sed a field goal attempt, a rarity for the Pats kicker, from 48 yards.Rob Gronkowski was again an afterthought in his second start of the season.He was not targeted by Bri sett until the fourth quarter, when he made hisfirst reception of the season for an 11-yard gain.MORE: Week 4 NFL scoreboardTaylor finished 27 of 39 for 246 yards and a touchdown, as well as five carries for 28 yards. LeSean McCoy was effective on the ground for Buffalo, going for 70 yards on 19 carries, adding another 38 yards and a touchdown on six catches.One wonders how the game would have fleshedout had the first play from scrimmage a 90-yard pa s play from Bri sett to Julian Edelman that would have put New England on Buffalo's 1-yard line stood.It was negated by an offensive pa Lamarr Houston Jersey s interference penalty.Obviously, the Patriots would love to be 4-0. But with Brady on his way back, no one is fretting over a single lo s even in this fashion and New England will remain the favorite to win the Super Bowl.
