The New England Patriots will try and get just their 2nd win of the season in week four against the Buffalo Bills. The game is set to kickoff at 1PM at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo. The Bills will host the game with a better record then the Patriots at 2-1. The Patriots come into the game after a tough week three loss in Baltimore Sunday night that saw their coach Bill Belichick grab an official at the end of the game, which is a big no-no in any sport. Buffalo, meanwhile, defeated the Cleveland Browns last Sunday despite an injury to their key running back.
Despite the Patriots record, they do have some other things going for them in this Sunday’s game. Overall, they have gained more yards a game (391) then Buffalo has (371) this season, and get nearly 100 more yards through the air then Buffalo has. They do, however, fail to be better in all other offensive categories in comparison to the Bills. This is made up for on the defensive side of the ball where the Patriots give up fewer total yards, rushing yards, and points when compared to Buffalo.
The Bills have shown drastic improvements this season and look to shock many in the NFL world Sunday as they will try and knock off the Patriots at home. The win would be a a huge display of just how good this years Bill’s team may be and would really be an NFL eye-opener. They will need to continue to have great success running the ball if they hope to win, but it is hard to say who will be rushing the ball this week. Spiller was injured in last Sunday’s game while Fred Jackson is also still close to coming back from injury. Tashard Choice is currently the only guy on the roster with a clean bill of health.
PREDICTION: NE 33 BUF 24
