The Patriots have finally found some traction on offense, grabbing their first touchdown of the game as the no-huddle offense left the Bills defense on its heels.
While so far Brady's passing game had left balls bouncing off finger tips, he went to arguably his most comfortable target in Rob Gronkowski for five yards to pick up his first gain of the day. That opened the floodgates. Stevan Ridley broke off a quick 7-yard run, Aaron Hernandez made a big grab over the middle for 27, and then Wes Welker brought the Patriots within the 25 with a catch of his own.
Going back to the ground game, Stevan Ridley carried three straight times, with a 22-yard burst on the second run bringing the Patriots to the goal line, where BenJarvus Green-Ellis leapt over the pile to put the Patriots on the board with their first touchdown.
Momentum seems to be shifting both ways now, as a big sack on Ryan Fitzpatrick has forced the Bills to finally punt--for real this time.
