2010 Look Back – Better Effort But Bills Fall to Pats 38-30

Today we keep moving forward with our look back to the 2010 season, and today it’s a week three battle with the Pats on the road, where the Bills played better, but still lost 38-30 to fall to 0-3 on the year.

While the Bills played tough, the end result was the same, as the team falls to 0-3 on the season with a 38-30 setback to the New England Patriots on the road.

Losing to the Pats is nothing news, as the Bills have dropped now 14 straight against their East rivals. The offense at least showed up, as new QB Ryan Fitzpatrick went 20 of 28 for 247 yards, two touchdowns and two INTs.

Tom Brady had a good day vs the Bills, as he was 21 of 27 for 252 yards and three TDs. On another positive note, rookie CJ Spiller finally had a day, as he returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown to make the score 24-23 Patriots.

New England (2-1) took a 17-16 lead at intermission on Stephen Gostkowski’s 43-yard field goal on the last play of the half. The issue with the Bills was they settled for three first-half field goals by Rian Lindell instead of touchdowns.

The Pats tied Miami for the third longest winning streak against a single opponent. The Dolphins beat the Colts in 14 straight games from 1980-1987.

The Bills will look to build on their decent outing next week when they host Rex Ryan’s Jets.
