The New England Patriots had two passes complete for a total of nine yards in Sunday’s 43-25 victory over the Buffalo Bills, an NFL-record low for passes thrown in a game.
New England matched the NFL record of one completed pass for minus-7 yards set last year in a loss to the New York Jets. The Patriots held Buffalo without a sack.
In Buffalo’s 14-point comeback win last season, New England’s Tom Brady threw for 14 yards with the final pass leading to the Jets’ victory.
This time, Bills rookie Josh Allen threw the ball 15 times for 93 yards, with turnovers on six of them.
The Patriots were up 38-13 early in the fourth quarter when they attempted a punt. Buffalo’s Harrison Phillips blocked it, it went over the Bills’ head for a 67-yard touchdown return. It was his second career TD.
New England’s only completion of the game came with 1:44 remaining. After two incompletions, the Patriots punted.
