FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes, two to Randy Moss, and the New England Patriots overcame Buffalo's stiff challenge for a 38-30 win Sunday, their 14th straight over the Bills.

First-round draft pick C.J. Spiller scored his first NFL touchdowns on a 5-yard pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick and a 95-yard kickoff return. But Buffalo's last chance faded when Fitzpatrick threw an interception to Brandon Meriweather with 3 minutes left.

New England (2-1) took a 17-16 lead at intermission on Stephen Gostkowski's 43-yard field goal on the last play of the half. Buffalo (0-3) had its best offensive day of the season, but still came up short as it settled for three first-half field goals by Rian Lindell instead of touchdowns.
