Perry's Report Card: Overmatched Pats have no answers for Bills originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Bills had an answer for everything the Patriots threw at them on Monday night.

Two-back running game? The Bills played downhill -- and aggressively so -- to slow them down. Zero-blitz looks from the secondary? Josh Allen was unbothered. An early punt-block call that burned the Bills a year ago? They had a fake ready to go.

The one play Buffalo might not have been ready for was a first-quarter double-pass that should've gone for a touchdown. Instead, it bounced off Damiere Byrd's facemask and fell incomplete. 

Just that kind of night for Bill Belichick's club. Let's get to the grades.
