Tyrod Taylor threw for 244 yards and one touchdown as the Bills offense and defense did just enough against the Patriots to secure their second win in Foxborough since 2001, a 16-0 victory over New England on Sunday. And Bills fans could not be more excited about the "W".

The Bills improve to 2-2, while the Patriots are now 3-1.

Against third string quarterback Jacoby Brissett, the Bills shutout the Pats for the first time at Gillette Stadium.  It’s also the first time New England was shutout at home since 1993.

LeSean McCoy ran for 70 yards and was heavily involved in the passing game, with six catches for 38 yards.  He scored the Bills only touchdown of the game, a seven yard catch from Taylor on Buffalo’s opening drive.

Buffalo limited New England to just 98 yards in the first half and forced four punts on their first five drives.  The Patriots most promising opportunity for points ended with Brissett losing a fumble late in the second quarter.

New England finished with just 277 total yards.

The Week 4 matchup marked the final game Tom Brady would miss following his Deflategate suspension.

Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is also eligible to return following his four game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
