The New England Patriots are off to a good start this season as they are 3-0. With a defense that has only allowed 3 points in total this season, it is safe to say statistically they are the best defense in the NFL. Tom Brady has been off to a great start this season, as well, throwing for 911 yards at 7 TDs. That will be put the test this week when the Pats travel to Buffalo to play the Bills. Let’s get to know the Bills and what to expect for Sunday!
The Buffalo Bills have surprised many as they are 3-0 to start the season. Their season started with what looked like a disaster being down 16-3 in the middle of the 3rd quarter against the New York Jets. However, the Bills rattled off 14 unanswered points to win 17-16 on the road. The next week they were back to MetLife Stadium but this time to play the Giants. Buffalo beat the Giants 28-14 behind a great performance by quarterback Josh Allen. The following week, Buffalo was back at home and in a close game, they beat the Cincinnati Bengals, 21-17. With the combination of Josh Allen playing well and a solid defense behind him, this will be a difficult test for the Pats as they hope to improve their record to 4-0. The Bills defense features a good defensive line with Jerry Hughes and Maurice Alexander stopping the run.
So far this season, Patriots fans have not had much to complain about. This will be the first test of the season for New England. After all, whoever wins this game will gain full possession of the top spot in the AFC East. Josh Allen could cause problems for the Pats defense. Not only does he have a solid arm, he can run. Allen has thrown for 750 yards and 3 TDs. He has also rushed for 26 and ran it in for a TD. With a 64.1 completion rate, the Bills will want Allen to get the ball out quickly to his playmakers to avoid the Patriots pass- rush.
Well, this has the makings of a great AFC East division battle so be sure to watch the game at 1 PM on CBS!
