The 59-yard drive lasted 6:21 before Gostkowski drilled his 50-yard kick, giving the Patriots a 3-0 lead.
Arguably the only thing overshadowing the Bills lack of offense was the absence of quarterback Tyrod Taylor who went down with injury. Taylor completed 9-of-18 passes for 65 yards and an interception. The 44-yard run was the longest of Lewis' career.
The game got chippy toward the end. Rob Gronkowski might even be looking at a suspension for his stupid cheap shot on rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White after intercepting Brady in the fourth quarter. Gronkowski drove his shoulder as he lay face down on the turf after the whistle and was penalized for unnecessary roughness. Burkhead would finish with over 100-all-purpose yards on the day.
LeSean McCoy had 93 of the Bills' 183 rushing yards.
