It’s going to be a windy one in Buffalo, New York on Monday night. The Bills and Patriots are set to meet up in a pivotal AFC East matchup on MNF. But the two teams won’t just be battling each other, they’ll be battling the elements as well.
Boston’s 98.5 “The Sports Hub,” shared an early view from the booth, showing what kind of wind we’re talking about for tonight’s rivalry game.

“It’ll be quite a game!” said the Weather Channel’s Mike Seidel. “Buffalo just gusted to 48 MPH.”
These are exactly the kind of games that Buffalo drafted Josh Allen out of Wyoming for. If the Bills strapping quarterback can cut throw the wind with his tremendous arm strength, it could play a big role in whether or not the Patriots get on the bus with a W or L.
Bill Belichick will do everything in his power to force Buffalo into keeping the ball on the ground. A part of their offense that’s been relatively non-existent all season.
