Patriots stunned after blowing big lead

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- So much for the New England Patriots' quick start.
The Patriots are still a little stunned after blowing a 21-point lead and losing 34-31 at Buffalo. The loss ended a 10-game regular-season winning streak for New England and dropped the Patriots to 2-1 with a road game at upstart Oakland next on the schedule.
New England coach Bill Belichick says the Patriots made plenty of good plays, but also had a lot of mistakes that cost them. Tom Brady threw four interceptions and the defense couldn't hold the big lead, allowing the Bills to rack up 448 yards of offense.
