Tom Brady is in fact 42

It was an exciting match-up between the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots in Week 4. Only one team still remains undefeated though and that is the Patriots with their 16-10 win in Buffalo.

The Buffalo Bills were the first team this season to give the New England Patriots a run for their money. A nail biter that could've gone the other way with only three minutes left in the game. Yet, Tom Brady and the Patriots still prevail over the Bills 16-10.

With only minutes left in the game, all viewers of this game saw the 3-0 Patriots go 3-1. The way the Bills had moved the ball throughout the game, there was no doubt with all their first downs that they might be the team to defeat NE. However, the final attempt was shut down by the Patriots' defense, which left them to run out time for the win.

Throughout the game, the Bills defense dominated against the Patriots. Tom Brady almost always looked like he was struggling to get the ball off to a teammate for a first down. Overall, Brady finished 18 out of 39 for 150 yards along with an interception. His fantasy points this week were the lowest they've been since 2006. TB12 can thank the D for this win as he looked like a 42-year-old playing football today.

Going into this game, there was a lot of heat evolving from both teams for this face-off. Both teams were 3-0, and the Patriots had won their last seven meetings in Buffalo. Also, Bills' tackle Dion Dawkins earlier in the week told reporters they didn't care what the Patriots had done in their other games because they hadn't played the Buffalo Bills yet. Van Noy of the Patriots responded with "Just wanted to make sure Dawkins knew who we were."

Considering this was the first game the Patriots allowed a touchdown to be scored against them, it's still pretty obvious they're the dominant team of the league.

Unfortunately today for the Bills they lost their QB Josh Allen who left with an injury. This is probably the most controversial play of the game as Buffalo coach Sean McDermott believes Jonathan Jones should've been ejected for the helmet to helmet hit that caused the injury.

"There's no room in football for that. It is a shame to see a player like Josh, or any player for that matter, go down on a hit like that." - Coach McDermott

There's a lot to take away from this game for both teams. All the hurt Patriots players have some time to rest before they take on the Washington Redskins next week. The Buffalo Bills will take on the Tennessee Titans as they see what unfolds with Josh Allen who's on concussion protocol.

Until then, remember-

Just football, no shenanigans

Also, congrats to the happy couple that got married at halftime!
