Orchard Park, NY (Sports Network) - Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and was backed by a potent ground attack as the New England Patriots dominated the second half on their way to a 52-28 win over the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The prospect of their first three-game losing streak in nearly a decade seemed very likely with the Patriots trailing by 14 in the third quarter. But New England produced touchdowns on six of its final seven possessions to stun a Buffalo team that has lost 22 of the last 24 meetings in the series.

Brady ended with 340 passing yards for the Patriots (2-2), while the tandem of rookie free agent Brandon Bolden and second-year running back Stevan Ridley carved up the Bills' defense.

Bolden had 137 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries and Ridley rushed 22 times for 106 yards with a pair of scores.

Ryan Fitzpatrick registered 350 yards and four touchdown passes for Buffalo (2-2), but he was also picked off four times.
