Yes, pretty much. The Pats* were given that game by Buffalo and their idiocy. The idiotic Buffalo kick returner should have just downed that last kick in the end zone. Buffalo didn't need great field position on that possession. They just needed to pick up a couple first downs and run out the clock. Yet the boneheaded kick returner still decided to run the kick out of the end zone.
If Buffalo had done what should have been obvious, for starters, there would have never been a chance for NE to force a fumble. And then it would have been far less likely for Brady to take the field one more time to lead a "miraculous 4th quarter comeback drive" for the media to gush about.
