Rough finish for Brady

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - The way Tom Brady started things on Sunday afternoon, he looked like a cinch to add to the 940 passing yards he piled up in the first two weeks.

And then, in less than one afternoon of football, he threw four interceptions, equalling his total from his entire 2010 MVP season.

"It's football, it's a few plays here, a few plays there," Brady said following a shocking 34-31 loss to the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium. "You've got to play for 60 minutes, keep your foot on the gas pedal and play mistake-free.

"Things change fast. A team that is explosive in the pass game like they are, they took advantage of that."

The key for the Bills was to try to rattle Brady, with the help of 68,174 noisy assistants at the Ralph, of course.

"To force him to do some things he didn't want to do, it shows we went out there and did our thing," said Bills linebacker, Shawne Merriman.
