Patriots, Vikings continue National Football League win streaks

Patriots, Vikings continue National Football League win streaks

Burkhead then took over in the second half by capping New England's first two drives with 1- and 14-yard touchdown runs.

The Patriots find themselves in a rock fight at New Era Stadium in Orchard Park, New York, where they hold a 9-3 lead at the half over the Buffalo Bills.

The Buffalo Bills gave their flagging playoff hopes a huge boost with a major upset on the road against a division leader and will try to do the same against one of their oldest rivals and a bitter nemesis. The fifth-round draft pick proved he wasn't ready two weeks ago, throwing five interceptions in the first half of a 54-24 loss at the Los Angeles Chargers.

The former totaled 15 carries for 92 yards on the ground.

Brady has a 26-3 career mark facing the Bills, with the 26 wins tying Brett Favre for most ever by a starting quarterback against a single opponent. Gilmore spent his first five seasons in Buffalo before signing with the Patriots in free agency this past off-season. Tyrod Taylor struggled to keep Buffalo's offense on schedule, and at the beginning of the fourth quarter, he was carted off to the locker room with a towel over his head, a knee injury ending his game.

Brady has had sideline eruptions at his offensive coaches before.

Deaths reported in Taliban attack on college in Pakistan
The area where the incident occurred is a hub for educational institutions in the city including the University of Peshawar . In a similar attack, Pakistani Taliban gunmen, in December 2014, had killed 134 children at Peshawar's Army Public School.

Rookie Nathan Peterman replaced Taylor and led the Bills to the 1-yard-line on his first series before turning the ball over on downs.

The Bills introduced some trickery in a bid to spark their offence by using third-string quarterback Joe Webb in several wildcat formations.

LeSean McCoy had 93 of the Bills' 183 rushing yards.

But who would have thought that neither of these teams would score a first-half touchdown on Sunday. That was a game Jacoby Brissett started for the Patriots in place of Brady, who was serving the fourth and final game of his "Deflategate" suspension. Grissom has appeared in four games this season, with his lone tackle coming in New England's Week 3 win over Houston.

Bills: Continue three-game homestand, hosting Indianapolis on December 10.
