Bills vs. Patriots preview:

The Bills—who are known for their stout defense—let Jay Ajayi run for 214 yards and a touchdown, and subsequently lost 28-25 to the Dolphins. That's simply not going to get it done. However, this Bills team hs a chance to prove they're a legit title contender in the NFL with a strong showing against the Patriots. It's an opportunity to prove that the week four win over New England wasn't a fluke.

The Patriots got the win over the Roethlisberger-less Steelers last Sunday 27-16, a game in which Tom Brady threw for a tidy 19-of-26 for 222 yards and two touchdowns. They continue to (once again) look like the best team in the NFL, much to the annoyance of every other team in the NFL.

The Patriots have won eight of the last 10 match-ups between the two teams.

Bills vs. Patriots prediction:

The Patriots are not about to get swept by the Bills this season. I expect Brady to come out firing to avenge the 16-0 beatdown they suffered in week four during his absence. LeSean McCoy could present some problems for the defense—if he plays—but other than that this game will be all New England as they roll to 7-1.
