New England Patriots: Looking Ahead to the Buffalo Bills
The New England Patriots are in a position that they have not been in a long time. For 20 years they were a team that won six Super Bowls and many AFC East titles. This year neither are far from happening. The Patriots are currently 2-4 and are in third place in the AFC East. The Buffalo Bills are on top and the Miami Dolphins are at 3-3. New England just came off back to back home losses which have not been done for a long time. At this point, Tom Brady is proving Bill Belichick wrong. Brady sits at 5-2 and has the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the driver’s seat of the NFC South. Cam Newton has had some good and bad games. The last two have not been good for him as he was benched for Jarrett Stidham in last week’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.
New England Patriots
The New England Patriots have not lost the Buffalo Bills since 2016. At this time that is a question. Belichick did come out and say he was sticking with Cam Newton. Julian Edelman just underwent knee surgery. He will miss the time which takes more weapons away from Newton. The defense will be tested by Josh Allen and the Bills offense. There is much reason why the Pats are where they are at. They led the league in interceptions. The running game has been not good either James White missed time with the passing of his father. Rex Burkhead and Sony Michel have not been the backs from the past. With them having limited practice with a Covid-19 hitting the team let see how Belichick gets his team prepared for Buffalo. I think he will make the best of what he has and try to extend the winning streak.
The Buffalo Bills will look to beat the New England Patriots for the first time in four years. With Tom Brady out of the way, it will be much easier. Buffalo are the leaders of the AFC East. They have a 5-2 record and the two games they lost have been to the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans. Last week they got a win over the New York Jets 18-10. They had some close wins but a win is a win. They have four games after this one that will be tough to win. These two teams will see each other again in week 16. Look for the Bills to play well on offense and defense and try to keep the Patriots at bay.
To me, this game will be a lot different than the ones in the past. The New England Patriots are not the same team. Newton and company have to have a better game than last week. The Buffalo Bills are the better team and we will see how they do against New England. Belichick always has a game plan to take away the strengths of the other team. The Bills will be ready and would love to end the win streak the Pats over them. The Patriots will be ready and will have a much better game plan than they had against the San Francisco 49ers.
