Best Of Social Media Week 8: Patriots vs BillsRich Barnes - USA TODAY Sports

Quarterback Tom Brady entered week eights match up with the Buffalo Bills boasting a 28-3 lifetime record against the AFC East Rival.

Riding a four game winning streak into western New York, the Patriots were heavy favorites once again.

In the first quarter, the Buffalo Bills play calling turned some heads to begin the night. As Bills offensive coordinator and former Patriots coach Brian Daboll attempted to throw the Patriots defense off early.

After a punt to begin the game, quarterback Tom Brady did whatever it took to keep the next drive alive, even if it meant trying to block.

The drive ultimately setup a Stephen Gostkowski 25 yard field goal for the first points of the game.  3-0 Patriots after one.

In the second, Brady also showed off his running ability.

So to recap, a block and a run for Brady in the game already.

Unfortunately the offense continued to struggle against the Bills defense, as they could only muster two additional field goals.

9-3 Patriots at halftime.

In the second half, “Bills Mafia” made their presence known following some unwanted items ending up on the field of play.

As the Patriots offense continued to find a groove, the defense kept them in the game as defensive end Trey Flowers had a monster game.

Linebacker Kyle Van Noy also continued his hot streak of big defensive plays.

With the score cut to three following a Stephen Hauschka 51 yard field goal, Buffalo’s own Rob Gronkowski struck back.

The offense again stalled in the end zone as Gostkowski tacked on his fourth field goal of the night to up the score to 12-6 after three.

In the fourth quarter with the score surprisingly low and the Bills right in the game, Brady looked to running back James White and wide receiver turned back Cordarrelle Patterson to finally get something going.

James White from a yard out for six and the Patriots first touchdown of the game to open it up to 18-6 with 10 minutes to play.

Trailing by 12 with six minutes to go, any hope of a Bills comeback was quickly dashed following a pix six from safety Devin McCourty, the first points scored by a Patriots defense in 40 games.

The 84 yard interception return for a touchdown all but closed the book on a week eight 25-6  victory for the Patriots who move to 6-2 in 2018.

The Patriots head home with a four game winning streak to take into next Sunday nights highly anticipated game with Aaron Rogers and the Green Bay Packers.
