The New England Patriots looked vulnerable. Down 14 points in the second half on the road to a division rival, they were staring a 1-3 record and the AFC East basement in the face.
So they scored 35 points in less than 14 minutes against the Buffalo Bills. And then they added 10 more points just to rub it in.
- New England rushed for 247 yards. Buffalo's prized defensive line hasn't been great rushing the passer, and this was an embarrassing effort defending on the ground. Bolden, an undrafted free agent, is a find. He runs with great aggression. The Patriots played power football even without guard Logan Mankins. The holes were massive.
- We'll give an assist to Brandon Spikes in the turnaround. The Patriots linebacker forced a fumble by C.J. Spiller on the goal line to end the first half, and then forced another fumble by Fred Jackson to start the fourth quarter. The Patriots cashed in to take a 14-point lead, and the game essentially was over. Buffalo turned over the ball six times overall.
