ORCHARD PARK —
The collapse by the defense was monumental.
Buffalo had never given up 45 points in one half. The four touchdowns rushing were the most the Bills have allowed at home since giving up four against Baltimore on Nov. 13, 1977, according to STATS Inc. And the Patriots became only the second NFL team to have two players with 100 yards receiving — Wes Welker (129) and Rob Gronkowski (106) — and two with 100 yards rushing — Brandon Bolden (137) and Stevan Ridley (106)."Next game, that's the mood," defensive tackle Marcell Dareus said. "No setback. Just got to move forward. Things happen, you know, a tale of two halves."
Gailey dismissed a question of how the Bills have now given up 100 points in two games against division foes.
"You can throw statistics and numbers out all you want," he said. "I'm more concerned about how we play, the intensity and quality of play than I am the numbers that are thrown out there right now. Our quality of play is not where it needs to be."
