Bills vs Patriots Preview
After winning six games in a row, Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots are the NFL’s form team and are the best-ranked AFC contender at 8-4.
Led by Rookie of the Year contender Mac Jones (2,850-yards, 16 TDs, 8 picks) at QB and the tough running combo of Rhamondre Stevenson and Damien Harris, the Pats offense has gelled and averages 35.1 points per game during the recent winning run. The receiving corps of WRs Kendrick Bourne, Jakobi Meyers, & Nelson Agholor, and TE Hunter Henry is also rapidly growing in reputation, and Belichick’s team is now capable of hurting an opposition in a variety of ways – the playbook is officially back open!
The New England defense, which was always going to be a tough out on paper when you ran through the roster towards the end of the offseason, has fared even better than expected. The former Raven, LB Matthew Judon has 11.5 sacks to his name; CB Jaycee Jackson has 7.5 interceptions; S Kyle Dugger has notched up 80 tackles, and, combined, the unit averages a measly 15.8 points against per game.
The Pats head into tonight’s contest with the Bills off the back of a shutout, 25-0, win over the Falcons and a team-defining 36-13 win vs Titans last week. But the Bills will fear nothing.
Sean McDermott’s team is at 7-4; got back to winning ways vs the Saints on Thanksgiving, and, on key, are as good as any team the NFL currently has to offer:
QB Josh Allen has already notched up 3,075-yards and 25 TDs to just the 10 picks, and his receiving corps of Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Emmanuel Sanders, and a vastly-improved Dawson Knox at TE is one of the best units in the NFL. Combined with aggressive running from Allen and RBs Devin Singletary and Zach Moss, the Bills boast the NFL’s fourth-ranked offense in terms of yardage, averaging 389.3 YPG and the NFL’s second-ranked unit for points per game, averaging 29.6 PPG on the year.
Coupled with the fact that the Bills also lay claim to the league’s best run defense (96.6 YAPG) and the best defense overall for YAPG (275.2) and it’s easy to see why many pundits still make the Bills the favorites for the Superbowl despite a stop-start run of form in recent weeks.
With the weather expected to include snowstorms and/or heavy rain, and gale-force winds, this game could go down to the wire as the best team on the year (Bills) meets the best team on current form (Pats) for the right to top the AFC East.
Bills vs Patriots Team News
The Bills lost probably their best defensive player Tre’Davious White to IR for the rest of the year last week and the CB’s absence is a huge loss for McDermott’s team as we enter the business end of the football season.
On top of that, Buffalo has injury concerns over FB Reggie Gillam and RG Cody Ford. Fellow RG Jon Feliciano, who was expected to return from IR last week, is also doubtful to suit up tonight.
For the Patriots, there are concerns along the offensive line with RT Trent Brown and C David Andrews both questionable to feature this evening. Kyle Dugger, who leads the team in tackles, will definitely miss out after he was placed on the COVID-reserve list – a huge loss for a crunch game.
DT Christian Barmore, LB Ronnie Perkins, and WR Gunnar Olszewski are the other big concerns for Bill Belichick, but the latest reports indicate that the trio are expected to feature this evening.
NFL Picks for Bills vs Patriots (Week-13)
This AFC-East clash has all the credentials to be one of the games of the year in the NFL, making it compelling viewing but almost impossible to call.
That said, form is a crucial factor in any sport. The Patriots’ six-game winning streak proves they are bang in form; the Bills sputtering WLWLWL record shows they are absolutely not.
As such, we’re taking Belichick’s underdogs on the moneyline.
Prediction: Patriots slug out a win on the road
