Due to 40 mph winds in Orchard Park, New York, the Patriots turned to their running game led by former Alabama product Damien Harris, who piled up 111 yards on 10 carries with one touchdown. Rookie Rhamondre Stevenson added 78 yards on the ground.

The Patriots ran the football 46 times for a grand total of 222 yards. Jones’ three pass attempts were the fewest by any team in a game since 1974. The Patriots’ defense has risen to the occasion as of late — it is allowing only 15.4 points per game, which is the fewest in the NFL.
