The New England Patriots held off the Buffalo Bills at home, beating their divisional rivals in a good old-fashioned shootout by a score of 37-31.
The Bills turned the ball over three times and the Patriots didn't turn the ball over a single time—the difference in the game.
Tom Brady passed for 231 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Danny Woodhead caught one, and he and Stevan Ridley both pitched in a rushing touchdown.
Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 337 yards and two touchdowns as the Bills attempted to come back from a 31-17 deficit in the third quarter, but his two turnovers cost him and his team any chance at catching up to the Pats.
Fred Jackson had a good showing for the Bills, rushing for 80 yards and two touchdowns, but it was too little, too late.
The Patriots improved to 6-3 on the season and will host the red-hot Indianapolis Colts in Week 11, while the Bills fell to 3-6 and will host the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football in four days time.
