Nov. 11, 2012 at 5:20 PM

FOXBOROUGH, Mass., Nov. 11 (UPI) -- Devin McCourty intercepted a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass in the final 2 minutes Sunday, allowing the New England Patriots to escape with a 37-31 win over Buffalo.

New England (6-3) led 31-17 in the third quarter, but the Bills scored 14 of the next 20 points to get into position for a late victory.

The Bills took over with 2:06 remaining and Fitzpatrick guided them on a drive to the Patriots' 15-yard line. But that's where it came to an end as McCourty picked off a pass in the end zone.

Tom Brady picked up 237 yards with two touchdowns on 23-of-38 efficiency as the Patriots who won their third straight overall and 11th in a row in Buffalo.

Fitzpatrick ended 27-of-40 through the air for 337 yards and two scores for the Bills (3-6), who have yet to record an AFC East divisional victory.
