can the patriots finally stop the run,we are giving up over 7 yards per carry over the last 3 games so hopefully we can sort that out and make Josh Allen beat us in the air.

good to be back at home with a chance to wrap up the East.

Hopefully Bills will have McCoy and Ivory back. Last week's RB situation was a complete nightmare.

Having said that, the offensive line while possibly improving ever so slightly in pass protection continues to be absolute dog meat in the run game. I'm hoping the rookie Teller continues at RG and McDermott gets more time at RT in place of the human gate Mills.

A big test for the improving Allen. Interesting to see if he can keep up the work with Robert Foster who leads the NFL in length of reception.

On the defensive side of the ball it's a shame Matt Milano is done for the season. He was excellent against the Pats in the first game and a true pass coverage LB.

Tre White has been a bit off it the last 2 weeks so he'll need to be switched on to again if we're to keep this game close.

Bills have the D to make a game of it but just like the first game the lack of O line and true weapons for Allen will see NE run out easy enough winners.

24-10 Pats.

With Josh Gordon out and no real deep threat, the Bills and everyone else will just stack the box to prevent the run.

I still think the Pats will have just enough against a Bills team that have struggled to score points all season.

Patriots limp into the playoffs but you can stick a fork in their season at one and done.

The end of the Brady era in the East. Josh Allen throws for 300 yards and 3 TDs. Robert Foster has 150 yards and 2 TDs, Allen has 1 more rushing. Bills win 31-17

The Patriots clearly aren’t the force of old, but there’s no way they lose 3 in a row. Buffalo’s Defense can cause them problems, but I can’t see them scoring enough points to give them a shot.

Patriots 27 Bills 16

a win today would be Bradys 30th versus the Bills and he needs 33 completions to hit the 6,000 mile stone.

Danny Shelton active today with Adrian Clayborn a healthy scratch today so that should help the defence in the running game.

think people forget that before the Miami game the patriots had been on a 8-1 run since week 4 and lost to a freak play at a stadium they struggle in then lost a 1 score game in Pittsburgh while holding that team to 17 points.

yes 9-5 isn't what in could have been but if we get back to winning ways at home and the Texans don't win out then we are still looking at the #2 seed and atleast 1 home play-off game after a bye week.
