Patriots’ running game makes itself felt
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – At the end of the Patriots’ loss to Baltimore, it appeared that the team had entirely forgotten about the handoff to Stevan Ridley. He was ignored, abandoned, with the Patriots concentrating their energy on the pass and on Danny Woodhead. It didn’t work. So, in the intervening week, the Patriots made the decision to emphasis the run, to get back to it. And with the Bills playing into that strategy – wanting the Patriots to run – New England obliged. It worked.
