Pickoff helps Pats pick on Bills again
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Ryan Fitzpatrick threw into the end zone to the open man. Unfortunately for the Bills, that man was Patriots safety Devin McCourty.
That easy interception with 23 seconds left decided the game the way every other Buffalo game at Gillette Stadium has ended — with a New England victory. The Patriots are 11-0 against the Bills at Gillette.
On their final drive, the Bills were forced to take an injury timeout when running back Fred Jackson was hit in the head area by linebacker Brandon Spikes. Earlier, Spikes, a former Florida star, was called for roughing the passer.
"I think he's a punk at times and took a cheap shot at Scott (Chandler) in the first game and he was doing a lot of jabbering and talking and hitting out there," Fitzpatrick said. "Not one of my favorite players. Not high on my list."
