It's not very often that Bill Belichick dishes out a compliment to his opponent, but that's exactly what happened on Tuesday morning. During his discussion with the media about New England's upcoming game against Buffalo, he revealed his appreciation for Bills fans.

Buffalo has one of the best fan bases in the entire NFL. Belichick has clearly taken notice of that.

New England hasn't really faced a tough challenge yet this season. That will change this weekend when it faces off with Buffalo on the road.

The Bills own a 3-0 record in large part because of their defense. On Sunday, the team mounted a nice comeback in the fourth quarter to defeat the Bengals in front of its home crowd.

While the Patriots will prepare for a very tough AFC opponent, they're also going to prepare to play in a hostile environment.

Belichick spoke about the crowd at New Era Field and just how loud the fans there can get.

"It's a very intense crowd. They're vocal, totally into it & have a great passion for the game," Belichick said. "Some stadiums don't have quite the intensity Buffalo does. They have no other agenda. They're there to watch the game. It gets very loud."

There's no question that fans in Buffalo will be on their feet this Sunday to support their team against the defending champions. On the flip side, it sounds like Belichick is ready for the challenge.

This upcoming clash between the Bills and Patriots should be one of the best matchups Week 4 has to offer.
