The Patriots (9-0) beat the New York Giants 27-26 on a last second 54-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski. Tom Brady threw for 193 yards in the fourth quarter as the Pats came back from a ten-point deficit. The big play of the drive was the 4th and 10 pass from the 20-yard line to Danny Amendola that got the team moving.
The Bills (5-4) beat the New York Jets 22-17 on Thursday Night Football. The Bills have won two divisional games in a row, having beaten Miami before that and are looking for a trifecta. Buffalo is in great position for a playoff spot in 2015 and needs to continue to play well to get to the post season, something the Bills haven’t seen in 15 years.
