Bills stun Patriots, handing New England a rare home shutout (Shutdown Corner)

If you had told New England Patriots fans at the start of the regular season that with Tom Brady serving a four-game suspension, and with Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett both starting games at quarterback, the team would still go 3-1, the majority of those Pats backers would have been thrilled. Playing their fourth and final game without Brady, who can report to the team facility at Gillette Stadium at 12:01 a.m. on Monday (and he just might), the Patriots fell to the visiting Bills, 16-0. It was the first shutout loss for the Patriots in a decade, and their first home shutout loss in over 20 years – the last time they were blanked in their home stadium was Nov. 28, 1993 at the hands of the New York Jets.
