The Buffalo Bills get another chance at the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon with one notable difference. There will be no Tom Brady on the field as he finishes his suspension and Buffalo has had no success against New England with Brady playing so this may be the team’s one chance to get a win on the road before Brady returns. The Patriots have a quarterback issue of their own and don’t know who will be starting this Sunday battle. Here is a look at the matchup.
The Bills got their first win of the season last week with a 33-18 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Tyrod Taylor has been good with 527 passing yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions on the season while looking the direction of Robert Woods and LeSean McCoy a lot with each having 11 catches. McCoy is leading the team in rushing yards as well with 227 on the ground so far but this is a game where Taylor has to deal with a very good Patriots defense and he will need his legs even more than normal. The Buffalo defense was great last week and now has to play at the same level this week.
The Patriots shut out the Houston Texans 27-0 to improve to 3-0 last Thursday night. Jacoby Brissett started last week and played well but it could be Jimmy Garoppolo back under center for this game. Garoppolo has passed for 496 yards and four touchdowns on the season. Julian Edelman has 18 catches for 180 yards in the pass game and there will be a fully healthy Rob Gronkowski for the Patriots to use this week. LeGarrette Blount has rushed for 298 yards and four touchdowns and will be leaned on again in this one. Can the defense pitch another shutout this week? It is possible against Taylor.
