Patriots methodical in another win vs. Bills

FOXBOROUGH - There’s no reward for style points in the AFC East standings. The Patriots’ methodical 20-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills yesterday at Gillette Stadium and the New York Jets’ 47-3 dismantling of the St. Louis Rams 210 miles to the south are equal in the standings - just like the teams that posted them.

The Patriots’ prosaic victory put them in a first-place tie with the Jets at 6-3 and the teams will meet at Gillette Thursday night, when they extend their football blood feud in prime time with first place on the line.
