Yet it was Mac Jones and the Patriots, who have struggled all season long, who came flying back to come up with a huge 29-25 upset win at Gillette Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
After nearly blowing a 10-point halftime lead, the Patriots scored the winning touchdown with just 12 seconds left in the game. Jones capped a quick eight-play, 75-yard drive with a 1-yard toss to tight end Mike Gesicki.
The win is just New England’s second of the season.
The Patriots went up early on Sunday thanks to a pair of field goals and a 2-yard touchdown run from Ezekiel Elliott in the first half. It wasn’t until Josh Allen hit James Cook for an 8-yard score that the Bills found the end zone themselves in the second half, and then they cut the lead back to just five points early in the fourth quarter on a 25-yard strike to Stefon Diggs.
While they were still in control, the Patriots nearly gave it away on the very next drive. On just the third play after Diggs’ touchdown, Kendrick Bourne fumbled after a 9-yard reception in New England territory. After the Bills got to the goal line, Allen then ran in the one-yard score himself. That gave the Bills a three-point lead, their first of the game.
But with less than two minutes left, the Patriots mounted what may be their best drive of the season. Jones hit Rhamondre Stevenson for what ended up being a 34-yard gain on the first play to get into Buffalo territory, which set up their scoring drive to come up with the four-point win.
Allen went 27-of-41 for 265 yards with two touchdowns and an interception for Buffalo, which lost for the second time in their last three games. Cook had 56 rushing yards on 13 carries. Dalton Kincaid had 75 yards on eight catches, and Diggs finished with 58 yards on six receptions.
Jones went 25-of-30 for 272 yards with two touchdowns in the win for the Patriots, who snapped a three-game losing skid. Stevenson had 34 rushing yards on nine carries, and Elliott finished with 31 yards on 11 carries. Bourne had 63 yards and a touchdown on six receptions.
