Today's Patriots-Bills game is expected to be a very one-sided affair that should lock up yet another playoff appearance for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.

The New England Patriots need just one win to secure their 10th straight AFC East title and 16th playoff appearance of the Brady-Belichick era.

The Buffalo Bills are 5-9 but have looked much better recently thanks to improved play from rookie QB Josh Allen.

ESPN’s computer model has released its prediction for the game.

ESPN’s computer model believes that New England is a strong pick in this game. The computer model gives the Patriots an 86.0 percent chance to win this Sunday's game.

It took a Miracle in Miami for the Patriots to lose just one of their four divisional games this season. From the confines of Gillette Stadium, they should feel very comfortable at 13.5-point favorites.

The game will be played at 1 p.m. EST on CBS.
