Patriots vs. Bills, Week 4: Buffalo defense falters in defeat

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Buffalo's defense has given up a lot of points in two AFC East games.

The Buffalo Bills entered the fourth quarter tied 21-21 with New England on Sunday but then proceeded to allow the Patriots to score 31 points over the final 15 minutes. Defense has been a serious issue for the Bills in AFC East games this season, as SB Nation's Buffalo Rumblings noted following Sunday's defeat:

The Bills have played two division games thus far in 2012. They're 0-2 in those games, and in those losses to the Pats and Jets, they've surrendered a whopping, disgusting, and unfathomable 100 points.

Outside the division, the Bills are 2-0 and have given up a total of 31 points. Overall, the Bills are giving up an average of 32.8 points and 406.5 yards per game, and both of those figures rank near the bottom of the league.

Buffalo hits the road in Week 5 for a game against the San Francisco 49ers.
