New England is disciplining the 27-year-old wide receiver for lateness, according to a report from NFL Network. White had 79 yards on 10 receptions and 15 yards on eight carries. They're also ninth with 12 takeaways, so the Patriots are certainly going to have to take better care of the football on offense than they have so far this season.
No, not much made sense in Orchard Park on this chilly Monday night - except for the outcome. The way the game unfolded was anything but ordinary.
In all, 66 percent of Brady's passing yards came between the numbers (214 of 324) and the three-time MVP only threw three incompletions on those throws.
In Julian Edelman's best game since his return from suspension, the Pats receiver caught six of his nine passes from inside the formation.
Against the Bills, Brady had an average time to throw of 2.7 seconds, by far his slowest release of the season. The Bills defense, however, also did their part. It's the Patriots' most significant defensive issue.
"It's not easy to score when you have a negative play in the red zone".
"It's not fair to them", he said. "They did a good job".
"The last couple of games it was our offense scoring and us trying to keep the team out". The points all came off the foot of kicker Stephen Hauschka, who connected on field goals from 47 and 51 yards out. Gostkowski connected from 25, 40 and 38 yards before missing a 50-yard attempt just before halftime.
A Patriot staple, Hoss Juke is a pass play created to match an offense's quickest player against a linebacker.
There's little reason for Bills observers to be optimistic about the offense doing anything major against the Patriots defense, as shaky and inconsistent as they've been. Anderson went to the locker room with 1:25 remaining holding his right arm after being sacked Kyle Van Noy. Safety Patrick Chung had a fumble recovery.
On the next play, Brady hit Gronkowski, who made a fantastic catch, for a gain of 22. After the first run, the average only 1.8 yards per carry.
But one that landed in the end zone was likely what captured the attention of authorities and ultimately resulted in Abdallah being arrested by the Erie County Sheriff's Office and charged with disorderly conduct. And nearly for the entire third quarter.
"We've got to put some touchdowns up", Gronkowski said. While it's really uncommon for many gadget plays to work to perfection, their weird nature comes as a welcome treat every time a team pulls one off. Not necessarily the first quarter.
Although McCoy led the Bills with six catches for 82 yards on Monday night, he entered the game ranked 34th in the National Football League in yards per carry (3.87) this season and 37th since the start of the 2017 season (3.95). He may have a tough time building on that momentum with the late start to the game. "It was a big play for us". The safety took the interception 84 yards to the end zone as the Patriots put a cap on this unusual night. "It's tough, but we can't do nothing about that".
