The first face-to-face regular season meeting between the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills gets the spotlight treatment on Thursday Night Football at Gillette Stadium.
There’s a bit of desperation in the air for the Patriots after having their cloud-nine wings clipped in a Thanksgiving Day loss to the Minnesota Vikings, which effectively ended their three-game winning streak. Meanwhile, the Bills had to pull out all of the stops to compile back-to-back wins over the Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions.
In the previous two head-to-head meetings, the Bills have scored a combined 80 points without punting. That’s a daunting statistic that paints a grim picture for a Patriots team that has struggled with mobile quarterbacks this season. And clearly, Bills quarterback Josh Allen is one of the best.
However, the Bills have looked shaky in recent weeks, and Allen has thrown seven interceptions in his last five games. It would be foolish to count out the Patriots when backed into a corner at home.
Here’s how to watch the game.
