The New England offense does not often waste good field position. So with the Pats starting on the Buffalo 48 after good defensive plays from Jerod Mayo and Darius Butler, it was only a matter of time before they put points on the board.
It wasn’t much time, either. Four runs went all 48 yards, with the bulk coming from Danny Woodhead’s 29-yard touchdown run to the left side. The offensive line opened up a big hole for the diminutive running back, and Woodhead found it, making his way largely unopposed into the end zone.
