Moving the ball well offensively and shutting down another of the NFL’s top offenses, the Buffalo Bills have a 17-6 halftime lead Sunday against the New England Patriots, looking for their first win in Foxborough, Mass. and their third win overall against the Patriots since 2000.

Kyle Orton has looked as good as he ever has since the team’s midseason bye, as he completed 11 of 15 passing attempts for 143 yards and a touchdown in the first half. The Bills have also had success running the football, with 65 rushing yards on 16 attempts, and have reached the end zone on both of their red zone trips today.

Defensively, the Bills have held the Patriots to just 121 yards of total offense and no touchdowns, as Tom Brady has completed just eight of 16 passing attempts for 80 yards.

The reality of this game, however, is that the Patriots essentially have nothing to play for, and it’s showed in their effort on the field.

It appears that Lawson was not utilized properly in Cincinnati where he was primarily a LB in a 4-3 defense.  Buffalo Bills DC Mike Pettine has stated that he will use a variety of defensive fronts in Buffalo. The Free Agent signing of Lawson I feel represents a shift from the vanilla, non-blitzing 4-3 base defense of Dave Wannstedt to a more aggressive; exploiting 3-4 defense of Coach Pettine. Because of the multitude of different fronts used throughout his time with the Jets some have referred to Pettine’s defensive system as The Amoeba! As a sidebar, I love typing the word Amoeba!
