In another endless series of appalling decisions and blatant favoritism, The Patriot Act was enacted in Gillette Stadium and thrust on the helpless and hapless Buffalo Bills and their faithful fans on Christmas Eve. The Patriot Act is tiresome. It defies logic. It is not right. It is irrefutable. It is bad for the country. And it is turning people away from the game.…

The call made to overturn Kelvin Benjamin's potential touchdown in the second quarter was the talk among Bills players and fans. It also resonated with the defensive back who was playing Benjamin -- former Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore. “He had to make a great catch and get his feet down," Gilmore said.

By Christopher Gasper, Boston Globe FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — 'Tis the season for giving, but Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is more into receiving when he plays the Buffalo Bills. One-handed catches aren't the only thing Gronkowski holds onto against Buffalo. Gronk holds a grudge against the Bills. He takes it out on them every time he plays them. Sunday at Gillette…

Bills coach Sean McDermott Q: Why the punt on fourth and one, down seven? SM: Yeah, just we went for it earlier in the game on fourth down and didn’t get it. The game was close at that point and wanted to come away with points early in the fourth quarter there. I think it was a seven-point game. I wanted to come away with points. Obviously, it didn’t turn out. Q:…

The combination of things work nicely in Buffalo’s favor again this week. The New England Patriots have a putrid 0-4 against the spread mark as home favorites in games following the Pittsburgh Steelers. Toss in a poor 1-3 ATS mark at home in games following a three-game road trip and that New England has been outgained in each of its last two games and you have the maki…
