SAAVEDRA FOR SPORTS ILLUSTRATEDRide Receiver Patriots wideout Julian Edelman made a looong stretch for the pylon and took Bills strong safety Aaron Williams with him on Sunday during New England's 40--32 win at Buffalo. Edelman did reach pay dirt on this 22-yard catch for one of his two touchdowns, but the landing left Williams with an injured neck, and he was taken off the field on a stretcher. He was released from the hospital on Sunday night with stiffness and soreness.

The 6'1", 230-pound Fournette raced 71 yards on his first touch and left with 4:14 remaining in the third quarter. It was his fourth game in a row with more than 140 yards, and the second straight time he has surpassed his career high.
