ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- After focusing on the pass on their opening drive of the third quarter, the Patriots made a noticeable strategic change on their long drive that ended with a Stephen Gostkowski field goal.

They ran five plays out of the two-back set on that long drive, favoring more compact, powerful formations in the run game.

That will be something to watch in the fourth quarter as the Patriots look to build on their 17-3 lead.
