FOXBOROUGH, Mass. • Tom Brady threw for two touchdowns, Devin McCourty ended Buffalo's hopes with an interception in the end zone and the New England Patriots kept the surprisingly tough Bills winless at Gillette Stadium with a 37-31 victory on Sunday.

The Patriots (6-3) let a 17-3 lead slip to 34-31 with 7:47 left on Ryan Fitzpatrick's 2-yard touchdown pass to Donald Jones. Then the Bills (3-6) held the Patriots to a 27-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski with 2:06 remaining.

Buffalo then moved to a second-and-10 at the New England 15 before Fitzpatrick threw the ball right into the hands of McCourty while trying to hit T.J. Graham.

New England is 11-0 against the Bills at Gillette since it opened in 2002 and 20-2 overall in its last 22 games against Buffalo.
