The New England Patriots defense had a fantastic day on Sunday, September 29, leading the team to a 16-10 win on the road over the Buffalo Bills at New Era Field.
New England’s defense boasted a staggering DVS (Defensive Value Score) of 9.0 in the win, blowing away Buffalo’s DVS of 0.11. The Patriots had four interceptions, forced two fumbles, had five sacks, six tackles for loss, and eight quarterback hits.
Josh Allen was taken out of the game for concussion protocol in the fourth quarter, ending what was an extremely frustrating day for the young quarterback in which he had only 153 passing yards, three interceptions, and no touchdown passes. He did score Buffalo’s only touchdown on a one-yard run in the third quarter.
Tom Brady had a rare bad day with 150 passing yards, one interception, and no touchdowns. Both teams posted ugly OVER (Offensive Value and Efficiency Rating) scores in the defensive battle, with Buffalo edging the Patriots OVER of 37.25 out with an OVER of 68.75. But New England edged out Buffalo where it mattered most; on the scoreboard.
