The Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots meet in NFL action from Gillette Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Buffalo Bills will try to build on their 31-14 win over Carolina last time out. Josh Allen’s thrown for 3,734 yards, 31 touchdowns and 12 picks on 65.2% passing while also rushing for 555 rushing yards and 4 scores. Devin Singletary has a team-high 633 rushing yards with a trio of scores while Zack Moss has 286 rushing yards and 4 TDs. Stefon Diggs leads the Bills with 82 catches on 128 targets with 1,007 receiving yards and 8 TDs while Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley each have 600+ receiving yards with Sanders logging 4 TDs as well this season. On defense, Tremaine Edmunds leads the Bills with 89 total tackles while Jordan Poyer has a team-high 5 interceptions.
The New England Patriots will look to rebound from a 27-17 loss to Indianapolis last time out. Mac Jones has thrown for 3,168 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions on 69% passing while Damien Harris leads the Pats in rushing with 754 rushing yards and 9 TDs and Rhamondre Stevenson has 465 rushing yards as well this season. Kendrick Bourne and Jakobi Meyers each have 600+ receiving yards for the Pats this season while Nelson Agholor and Hunter Henry each have 450 + receiving yards as well for New England this season. On defense, Kyle Dugger has a team-high 85 total tackles while Matthew Judon leads the Patriots with 12.5 sacks and J.C. Jackson has a team-high 7 interceptions this season.
Buffalo is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a win and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 division games while the over is 7-0 in their last 7 games as an underdog. New England is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 division games while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 games in December.
I get the allure of Buffalo here as it’s hard to beat a hated rival twice in one year. However, New England had a hiccup last time out, but they’re still the far better team here and I think at home, with the home crowd rocking, the Pats find a way to win and ride their defense to a cover here.
