The New England Patriots didn’t put on their best showing Monday against the Buffalo Bills, but it was capped in exciting fashion.
With just over six minutes to play and the Pats ahead 18-6, Bills quarterback Derek Anderson tried to throw a pass into the middle of the field. Patriots safety Devin McCourty was a step ahead, however, picking the pass off at the 25-yard line and running it all the way back, burning a few would-be tacklers in the process.
Take a look:
The touchdown proved to be the final scoring either side would do for the remainder of the game as New England climbed to 6-2 after eight weeks of action.
