Tom Brady continued his dominance over the Bills on Sunday

Buffalo's defense had no answer for Tom Brady on Sunday.

The Buffalo Bills talked the talk, but they couldn't walk the walk. On Sunday, the Bills comeback fell short 40-32. 

Tyrod Taylor made plenty of mistakes throughout the game, but his offensive line also did him no favors. The quarterback almost brought the Bills back late in the game and he finished the game completing 23-of-30 passes for 242 yards and three touchdowns. Taylor also added 43 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Not everything was positive in regards to the quarterback's play in Week 2, however.

Taylor threw three interceptions on the game. Two of the interceptions did hit his intended targets on the hands but both passes were high. His other interception was a poor throw late in the half on the run. Taylor also found himself getting sacked eight times during the game. About half of those sacks were on Taylor for holding onto the ball for too long. 

In the running game, the Bills once again finished without a 100 yard rusher. LeSean McCoy finished as the team's leading rusher with 89 yards on 15 carries. As a team, Buffalo rushed for 160 yards and two touchdowns on 27 rushes (5.9 YPC).

Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods both recorded 60 yards and a touchdown receiving. Watkins led the way with six receptions, while Harvin had four receptions and Woods had three. Charles Clay also added a touchdown reception for Buffalo.

While Buffalo's offense was able to put up 32 points, the offensive line struggled once again with consistency.

Defensively, Buffalo struggled greatly. Tom Brady didn't face much pressure at all on Sunday and the quarterback completed 38-of-59 passes for 466 yards and three touchdowns. He was sacked twice on the game, with one resulting in a lost fumble, but the quarterback continued his overall dominance over Buffalo on Sunday.

New England's game plan was simple: Pass early and pass often. New England finished the game with 15 total carries. Due to Buffalo's stout run defense, this may be something Buffalo's opponents try to do throughout the season. 

Dion Lewis did score a touchdown on the ground and the Patriots had four players finish with over 80 yards receiving. Julian Edelman scored two touchdowns for New England and Rob Gronkowski added the third. 

Twenty five penalties were called on Buffalo and New England during the game. The penalties resulted in a total of 259 yards. This is another area where Buffalo needs to improve.
