New England Patriots vs Buffalo Bills Preview
The Bills won the AFC East for the second year in a row last week with a big win over the Jets, while the Patriots suffered a disheartening loss to the Dolphins in Miami.
Buffalo remains at home laying -4 against the spread, but if you’ve watched the previous meetings between these two sides, you’ll know this is probably one of the toughest games to pick.
The Bills come in with all the momentum after rattling off four straight wins over the last month, but it’s hard to forget their 14-10 loss at home to New England in early December.
Snow wreaked havoc that day, but so did Bill Belichick and his unconventional “run the ball 46 times” game plan.
The Bills got revenge three weeks later with a 33-21 win at home though, a game that saw Josh Allen throw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns.
The Patriots’ secondary has actually been one of the best in the league this year, but where they might run into trouble this week is quite literally, against the run.
Devin Singletary has put together two very impressive games on the ground, and he’ll be relied upon to try and answer New England’s stout running game headed by Damien Harris.
Whoever wins the battle on the ground should win this game, but I also think it comes down to how rookie quarterback Mac Jones handles the moment.
The crowd in Buffalo is electric at the best of times, and aside from a cheap win over Jacksonville a couple of weeks ago, Jones has hardly looked like the quarterback we saw at the beginning of the season.
Like he’s done for 20+ years, you can never discount Belichick out-scheming the Bills, but if Jones struggles under pressure and Allen plays mistake-free football, Buffalo is going to be tough to beat.
