Buffalo Bills vs New England Patriots Preview
It’s always a big occasion when these two rivals get together, especially at this time of year.
The Patriots can move one step closer to locking up the AFC East with a bounce-back win at home, but they’ll need to be at their best against a Bills defence that just held the Panthers to 14 points.
Like the market suggests, there really isn’t much separating these two sides, just like when they met three weeks earlier.
The Patriots won that game 14-10 in the Buffalo snow, but it’s doubtful we see the Patriots run the ball 46 times on this occasion.
Instead, New England’s defence is going to have to stop Josh Allen and the rest of the Bills’ high-scoring offence.
Bill Belichick’s side did a phenomenal job of forcing Buffalo into mistakes last time out, but with clearer weather forecast, this is going to be tougher.
That said, the Patriots held Carson Wentz in check last week, and it’s fair to say Buffalo’s running game isn’t quite that of the Colts.
New England has also played to a strong 3-1 record on the back of a loss this year, so with home-field advantage, I’m happy to back them in another close one.
