ORCHARD PARK, N. Puma Creepers Noir .Y. -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady asserted his on-field ownership of the Buffalo Bills again Sunday, matching an NFL record in beating them for the 26th time.Brady went 22 of 33 for 315 yards and threw four touchdowns in leading New England to a 41-25 win. He improved to 26-3 against Buffalo , matching a record set by Brett Favre, who went 26-9 against Detroit.Best of all, Bradys performance had Bills fans heading for the exits early in the fourth quarter, what whatever Patriots fans remained as the clock wound down.Weve had a lot of experiences where theres 70,000 people against you, Brady said. And at the end theres 5,000 Patriots (fans) on the road that are cheering for us. ... To be so far ahead you can run out the clock, its a great feeling.The Patriots (7-1) have won four straight since Brady returned after opening the season serving the NFLs four-game Deflategate suspension. His absence included New Englands only blemish, a 16-0 home loss to Buffalo on Oct. 2, the first time the Patriots were shut out at home since 1993.And dont think that loss didnt still sting.You know, they like to talk all that. They got that win, said tight end Rob Gronkowski, who had 109 yards receiving and a touchdown. Im so glad we came in here and showed them what were really about.After a Bills field goal, Brady threw touchdowns passes on his first two drives. They included a 53-yarder to former Bills receiver Chris Hogan , who beat cornerback Stephon Gilmore up the left sideline.The Patriots then broke the game open by scoring 27 points over five consecutive possessions in a surge that began with Gronkowski scoring his 69th career touchdown to break a franchise record previously held by Stanley Morgan.The Bills (4-4) sputtered minus their offensive top threat, running back LeSean McCoy, who has a hamstring injury. And their defense was unable to keep the Patriots in check despite star defensive tackle Marcell Dareus making his season debut.Dareus missed the past three games because a hamstring injury, and missed the start of the season serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy.Obviously, we werent good enough, Bills coach Rex Ryan said. We made way too many mistakes, mistakes that we havent made all season. And against a guy like Brady, he makes you pay.The Patriots punted just three times and converted nine of 13 third-down opportunities.Backup running back Mike Gillislee scored on a 3-yard run and Taylor scrambled for a 26-yard touchdown on fourth down in the third quarter. Jonathan Williams scored on a 1-yard run with 30 seconds left.Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman also caught touchdown passes, while LeGarrette Blount scored on a 1-yard run.For Brady, it was his first four-TD outing since a 36-7 win over Miami last October. It was the most hes had on the road since throwing four in a 37-22 win at Orchard Park on Oct. 12, 2014.Of his 20 regular-season games with four touchdowns passing or more, six have been against Buffalo.GRONK MILESTONEGronkowski, who grew up in Buffalo, actually set two franchise records with his 53-yard touchdown catch . It was his 69th touchdown and 68th TD receiving, moving him one ahead of Morgan in both categories.After spiking the ball, Gronkowski spun and took a bow.He said he bowed in tribute to his mother, Diane, who met with Gronkowski at the team hotel on Saturday and told him how proud she would be for him to break the record.I was like, Ive got to give her a shoutout for letting me know shes super proud of me, he said. Hi mom and thank you.SACK ATTACKThe Bills had five sacks, upping their season total to 26 -- five more than they managed all last season. Veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams had one, his 38th, moving into eighth on the franchise list, one ahead of Sherman White.SPECIAL TEAMSPatriots: Amendolas 73-yard kickoff return to open the second half led to Bradys 12-yard TD pass to Edelman to put New England up 31-10.Bills: Bills punter Colton Schmidt bumbled his drop while facing fourth-and-15 at his own 20. He quickly scooped it up and broke up the right sideline for a 16-yard gain. Buffalo eventually went on to score on Taylors 26-yard run to cut the Patriots lead to 31-17 midway through the third quarter.INJURIESPatriots: None reported.Bills: LB Lorenzo Alexander did not return after hurting one of his hamstrings during a punt return in the second quarter. Receiver Brandon Tate (concussion protocol) did not return after being tackled by Devin McCourty in the third quarter. RB Reggie Bush hurt his groin.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and twitter.com/AP-NFL  Nike Air Huarache Homme .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. Nike Air Huarache Femme . The visitors took a deserved lead in the 16th minute with midfielder Yohan Cabaye curling the ball beyond Adrian from inside the penalty area. www.pumabyrihanna.fr/nike-air-huarache-pas-cher.html  . They reached the 100-point plateau for the fourth time in five games, bested the visiting Trail Blazers by 34 in the paint and scored 19 of the final 25 points in regulation. RALEIGH, N.C. -- Gov. Pat McCrory frames the debate over North Carolinas law about transgender people and restrooms as one of common sense and safety and privacy. Yet try as he might, he cant shake the narrative from the laws opponents of bigotry and intolerance.The NCAA and Atlantic Coast Conference delivered the latest blows this week, stripping the state of lucrative championships and leaving the Republican with another bruise as he fights for his political life. Entering the final weeks of the nations most closely watched governors race, McCrory is trying to reset the focus for voters.When we were raising the average teacher pay, creating new jobs and cutting taxes, other folks were actually pushing to make our schools allow boys to use the girls locker rooms and showers, McCrory says in a recent television ad. Are we really talking about this?If McCrory wins re-election, it will be in face of some of Americas biggest household names: Apple, Google and Facebook have all come out against the law, while PayPal canceled a planned expansion in McCrorys hometown of Charlotte because of it. The NBA moved its 2017 All-Star game out of Charlotte, and entertainers such as Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam and Ringo Starr have canceled shows in North Carolina.Its unclear whether the law is actually costing McCrory supporters, but the economic hits keep playing into the hands of Democratic challenger Attorney General Roy Cooper, who wants the law repealed. Polls have shown McCrory even with or trailing Cooper.This governors election is going to say a lot about our state and who we are, Cooper said this week on a Raleigh sports radio show. I think its time to show the country and the rest of the world who we really are. This is hurting us and its got to stop.The law, known as House Bill 2, was approved by the GOP-led legislature in March in response to Charlottes approval of an anti-discrimination ordinance for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people at hotels, restaurants and retailers. McCrory and lawmakers had sought to counter the actions in Charlotte, where he was mayor for 14 years.The law canceled the ordinance, prevented other local governments from passing similar laws and directed transgender people to use restroom and locker roooms in schools and government buildings corresponding to the sex on their birth certificate. Nike Huarache Femme Pas Cher. The NCAA and ACC punishments could make it harder for moderate voters McCrory relied on in 2012 to keep supporting him, said Michael Bitzer, a political science professor at Catawba College.The ACC action, coming two days after the NCAA withdrawal, could be more acute. Four North Carolina schools play in the league, headquartered in Greensboro since it was founded in 1953.Its one thing for Bruce Springsteen to pull concerts and for PayPal to pull jobs, Bitzer said, but when youre talking about the heart of a sports conference in a state with such loyalty thats a real punch in the gut about this policy decision, and whos to be held responsible for it.Carter Wrenn, a longtime Republican consultant in North Carolina, said polls hes seen dont make House Bill 2 a cutting issue -- one that makes people change their votes. The public still puts national security, education and the economy ahead of it, Wrenn said.I dont think it is going to influence a lot of votes, Wrenn said.McCrory and his allies blame the Human Rights Campaign, the sports and entertainment elite and Democrats for conspiring to make an example out of North Carolina on LGBT rights. This continued Tuesday when McCrory called the NCAA a multi-billion dollar, tax-exempt monopoly, while criticizing its decision to pull out events.The ACC Council of Presidents followed the NCAAs lead, voting Wednesday to relocate the leagues championships until North Carolina repeals the law. The decision includes 10 neutral site championships this academic school year, which means relocating the ACC football title game that was scheduled to be played in Charlotte in December.The decision to move the neutral site championships out of North Carolina while HB2 remains the law was not an easy one, said Clemson President James Clements, chairman of the leagues council. But it is consistent with the shared values of inclusion and non-discrimination at all our institutions.---Associated Press writer Jonathan Drew in Raleigh, North Carolina, contributed to this report. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
