BOSTON (CBS) – Throwing isn’t really a good option for patriots or billers during Monday Night Football, with the wind howling completely at Highmark Stadium.
Still, it won’t matter for the Patriots if Damien Harris continues to break major races. After starting the game with threes or more, the Patriots took an 8-0 lead from a 64-yard touchdown by Harris.
Harris got just eight yards out of his previous four runs before breaking the longest stretch of his career.
Damien Harris is GONE. Touch of the ball at 64 yards! #ForeverNE

It was also the Patriots’ longest run this season and the team’s longest since Curtis Martin’s 70-yard comeback in 1997.
The Patriots didn’t even bother to put Nick Folk out for more points, with Brandon Bolden replacing Mac Jones and making his way into the end area for a two-point switch.
Those spots generated a revenue stream, as the Bills in turn removed their previous ownership before a bad handover by Josh Allen.
