The Buffalo Bills have the top early upset of the season and possibly the entire season with their 34-31 victory over the New England Patriots. Down 21 points in the second quarter, the Bills clawed back over the final two quarters and two minutes of play.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady kept throwing and throwing, just as he did in the previous two weeks, with four more touchdowns, but he also kept putting the ball into the hands of Bills defenders. He had four interceptions in the game after having four all of last season. Drayton Florence's pick in the fourth quarter put the Bills are 31 points.
Rian Lindell kicked the game-winning field goal with three second left on the clock, a 28-yard shot.
Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was 27-of-40 with 369 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Donald Jones, whom Broncos safety delivered a nasty hit to during the preseason, had five receptions for 101 yards. The Patriots' Wes Welker outdid him with 16 receptions for 216 yards and two touchdowns.
