Buffalo Bills News - November 4, 2002

Marker Rolling With The Current [5:57 AM]
Hartford Courant reports: 'On Saturday night, Drew Bledsoe took Patriots linebackers Mike Vrabel and Ted Johnson to dinner. On Sunday, they ate him for lunch.'

Marker Receiving Option Uncovered [5:56 AM]
Hartford Courant reports: 'He wanted to do well against his former teammates, but it wasn't a crusade or a national story. His was the grudge match that few people talked about. The spotlight was on Drew Bledsoe coming into Sunday's Patriots-Bills game. But that was fine with Antowain Smith.'

Marker Defense Throws Drew [5:55 AM]
Hartford Courant reports: 'The Bills' tissue-soft play Sunday was interrupted only by occasional bursts of stupidity. They had defenders failing to make plays they should have, and their franchise quarterback playing when he shouldn't have.'

Marker Smith rumbles past Bills [5:54 AM]
Springfield Union News reports: 'The funny thing is that after all the buildup, Drew Bledsoe went out and played pretty well - and it didn't really matter.'

Marker QB, coach show mutual respect [5:53 AM]
Springfield Union News reports: '"He said something to me after the game," Belichick said. "I appreciate it. I feel the same way about him. He's a hell of a football player."'

Marker Patriots make Bills pay [5:52 AM]
Woonsocket Call reports: 'Brady threw for 310 yards and four touchdowns on 23-of-27 passing and outdueled Bledsoe, who had a solid afternoon, but was forced to play from behind thanks to his defense's inability to tackle. Bledsoe finished with 302 yards on 28-of-45 passing and threw one touchdown along with an interception.'

Marker Happy days are here again [5:51 AM]
Woonsocket Call reports: '"I didn't think about (Bledsoe) a lot," Brady said. "I think I'm more focused on their defense. In a sense, either consciously or subconsciously, maybe it made it easier. I don't know. I know that when I make my reads and I make the throws on time, hood things happen."'

Marker The right quarterback remains in New England [5:50 AM]
Woonsocket Call reports: 'On the field yesterday, the Bills were lousy.'

Marker Super Bowl line clears the way for rushing rampage [5:49 AM]
Woonsocket Call reports: 'Perhaps by coincidence -- or perhaps not -- Smith had his best day running behind the same offensive line he had last season during the Patriots' Super Bowl run. Joe Andruzzi, Mike Compton, Damien Woody and Matt Light were all healthy and Greg Robinson-Randall earned his first start of the season. They consistently opened up holes and made key blocks on plays that ate up a ton of yardage.'

Marker N.E. finally finds that recipe again [5:48 AM]
Manchester Union Leader reports: '“I’m really proud of the way our football team played today. I felt that offensively, defensively, special teams, each unit complemented the other ones,” Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said. “We’ve got a lot of tough guys in that locker room. They worked hard to straighten some things out.”'

Marker A stampede in Buffalo [5:47 AM]
Albany Times Union reports: 'In their first game with Bledsoe on the other side, the Patriots stormed to a 17-0 lead. The Patriots never led by fewer than 10 points the rest of the way.'

Marker Smith still happy to repay Bills [5:46 AM]
Albany Times Union reports: 'Somebody went after his old team with a vengeance, all right.'

Marker Nothing Like a Good and Heated Rivalry [5:45 AM]
New York Times reports: 'Yesterday, Buffalo Bills quarterback Drew Bledsoe learned to appreciate the nuances of a rivalry, if it's possible to appreciate being sacked four times, knocked around several more times and embarrassed by old friends.'

Marker Patriots Look Like Champions Again [5:44 AM]
Los Angeles Times reports: 'So much for the great debate.'

Marker Belichick's bunch has KO punch [5:43 AM]
Chicago Tribune reports: 'Drew Bledsoe didn't have a chance.'

Marker Brady, Patriots look like champions again in rout of Bills [5:42 AM]
Philadelphia Inquirer reports: 'The Patriots also looked more like the champs of last season.'

Marker It was big game for Bledsoe, but just another for Patriots [5:41 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'The perfect passer efficiency rating a NFL quarterback can achieve in a single game is 158.3. Brady compiled a 154.1 rating against the Bills.'

Marker Brady, Patriots bury Bledsoe, Bills 38-7 [5:40 AM]
USA Today reports: 'They looked like Super Bowl champs again - with Brady in a Super Bowl MVP role.'

Marker Sunday revival [5:39 AM]
CNN/SI reports: 'Scoring on six of their seven meaningful possessions, the Patriots rode Brady's hot hand and the powerful running of Antowain Smith to a victory that should end all the discussion -- for now at least -- on two different Patriots fronts: Was Brady the right choice at quarterback? And was New England a one-year wonder?'

Marker Closer Look [5:38 AM]
CNN/SI reports: '"He is such a strong, powerful back," said Brady, whose 23 of 27, 310-yard, four-touchdown passing performance was in large part made possible by Smith's first 100-yard rushing day since Dec. 22. "He runs hard. He's tough. He's determined. I love having him back there and I love turning around and giving it to him."'

Marker Smith once again part of Patriots' plan [5:37 AM]
ESPN reports: 'He caught five passes on Sunday, two for touchdowns. And Brown knows Smith can run, too. After rushing for 111 yards on 29 carries, Smith is back in the center of the Pats' offense.'

Marker Belichick schemes confuse, frustrate Bills [5:36 AM]
ESPN reports: 'The loss, Buffalo's worst since a 47-6 drubbing by the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 4, 1987, was one in which every Bills player could assume culpability.'

Marker Pats show just how well they remember Bledsoe [5:35 AM]
Fox Sports reports: 'Before we go any further, let's cut Bledsoe some slack. He played well enough to win some ballgames, throwing for 300 yards for the fifth time this year, but he didn't play well enough to win this ballgame.'

Marker Week 9: Bills-Patriots Postgame Quotebook [8:27 PM] reports: Head coach Gregg Williams: \"The big thing was, they kept the ball out of Bledsoe\'s hands a little bit and we didn\'t get off the field on the third downs defensively. When we got back out on the field today, they did a good job mixing up their coverage. They did a good job on pressures and on coverage and played well. We didn\'t throw and catch well enough.\"
