Patriots Trail Bills 21-17 Heading into Fourth

The momentum that the Bills picked up at the end of the first half following a Tom Brady interception carried over into the 3rd quarter, as the Buffalo Bills started off the second half with a big touchdown drive to take a 21-17 lead.

The Patriots responded by taking the ball all the way down the field to the Bills' one yard line.  However, the Patriots couldn't convert on a fourth and goal from the one, with Tom Brady fumbling the snap and the Bills recovering.

Momentum is seriously on the Bills' side as the teams enter the fourth quarter.  They have the ball deep in Patriots territory after a short punt from rookie Ryan Allen.

It's been a sloppy and uncharacteristic game for New England and if the Patriots can't put together a solid scoring drive soon, they could be handed a shocking defeat in their opening game of the season.
