New England Patriots: Going Inside the Game Against the Buffalo Bills
The AFC East has been dominated by one team for the past century. That would be the New England Patriots. The other three teams have been trying to play catch up. One of those teams might be the Buffalo Bills. The Bills have started off the season very well. This will be a battle of undefeated teams. The Bills will also be at home. The question in Buffalo is when will Josh Allen develop and mature. Well, the answer to that question is possibly this year. As for the Patriots, it has been more of the same. They any had an Antonio Brown experiment that lasted one week. The surprise for the Patriots this year has been on the defensive side. The Patriots defense has held opponents to just 17 points in the first three games. This game will be a test for both teams.
The Patriots are were they been for a long time on top. They set many franchise records just a week ago. They have the most wins in the past decade. In those wins, they have won 15 straight home games. This is the seventh time they have been 3-0 under Belichick. The Patriots have also scored 30 or more points in all three games so far. Now the rest of the league doesn’t want to hear that. Their opponent this week might be the best one. The Bills are a good offensive team and play well on defense. I think the Bills will test the Patriots and vice versa. The Patriots dominated the Steelers in week one. In week two they would travel to Miami where they don’t play well. The Patriots shutout the Dolphins. Last week they took care of the New York Jets.
The Bills like the rest of the NFL are tired of the Patriots being on top. This week they have a chance to chip away at the mighty Patriots. Their quarterback Josh Allen has started 2019 on fire. He stayed away and minimize his mistakes. This has helped the Bills get to where they are at. The Bills defense may not have the same pedigree as the Patriots. On the other hand, they had not allowed more than 17 points to any of their opponents. Now many will look to see who they have played. Their opponents have been the New York Jets, New York Giants, and the Cincinnati Bengals. They only have one win between the three of them. That win was the Giants last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This will be their toughest opponent. They will have to be near perfect to win.
At one time this used to be a big matchup in the AFC East. It hasn’t been that way in a while maybe on Sunday it will start again. On the paper, the Patriots should win this game very easily. I have also seen some experts predict a shutout like what happened in the Dolphins games. We will have to wait and see.
