New York Jets
As I was walking to the bar to watch this game, I started to think to myself, "what would be worse, a blowout or a close loss?" That's pretty much what Bills/Pats games have become. Forget having a chance at winning. I remember last year after Buffalo beat them, I kind of felt that line of thinking would erase. Obviously, being 3-0 at the time was a big part of it. Alas, the season collapsed and so did that optimism against the Pats.
In a way, I've hated that victory. What did it do for us in the long term? Absolutely nothing. So, we broke the streak and now we've lost 22 out of 24 games against them. It was great for one day, but wouldn't you wish it happened during a playoff year or maybe a win would have catapulted the Bills into something more special?
So, because of the season collapsing and the Pats scoring a gazillion points against Buffalo recently, I decided to pick a blowout in terms of what I would rather witness.
Personally, I can ...

According to Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com, Bills running back Fred Jackson suffered a head injury during Sunday’s loss to the Patriots.
“I don’t know if they’re calling it a concussion,” said Gailey. “I don’t know what the word is. I don’t know if it’s a concussion or not. They didn’t tell me.”
We’ll have to wait and see how Jackson looks during the week...
The Buffalo Bills have announced that running back Fred
Jackson will not play during the team’s Thursday night contest against the
Miami Dolphins, reports Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com.
“It looks like Fred will be
out this week,” said Bills coach Chan Gailey. “The tests this morning were not
as good as we had hoped and he had hoped so he won’t play this week.”
It was all set up perfectly.
After a huge defensive stop held the Patiots to only a field goal, the Bills were about to get the ball back trailing by only six points, with a chance to win the game.
Ryan Fitzpatrick had been on fire all afternoon, throwing for over 300 yards and two touchdowns in the contest.

Since the Bills and Patriots are (most likely) done playing each other this season, it looks like Brandon Spikes won’t have another opportunity to lay more lumber on Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in 2012.
Following New England’s 37-31 victory at Gillette on Sunday, the Harvard grad took a parting shot at the Patriots’ linebacker in his press conference.
The Bills and the Patriots played an NFL Game that ended in heartache & despair.
MVP: Ryan Fitzpatrick. We, myself leading the parade, like to bash Fitz. The weak arm, the inability to throw it deep, the inaccuracy, and the ever looming "Fitz Pick" that kills this team like it did yesterday. But today, Ryan Fitzpatrick played probably...

The Headline: Bills start to show some promise but the Patriots hold on
With their season on the line, the Bills travelled to New England hoping to keep pace with the AFC East leaders. Unfortunately for them, every possible thing that could have gone wrong did as the Bills put forward a mistake riddled performance and still found themselves...
Brandon "Predator" Spikes certainly isn't one of the most liked players on the field when it comes to game time. This past Sunday against the Bills, Spikes had a helmet-to-helmet hit on quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick that led to a roughing the passer call and a few choice words from Fitzpatrick during and after the game. I think Spikes is an emotional player, I think...

Buffalo Bills (3-5) @ New England Patriots (5-3)
In week 4, the Patriots beat the Bills 52-28, which sounds like (and eventually was) a sound beating but in the the 3rd quarter the Bills led 21-7 before the Patriots tore off 6 straight scoring drives. The Patriots gave up 438 yards of total offense but...
After a much needed bye week, the New England Patriots get back into action on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills at home. The Patriots beat Buffalo 52-28 in late September. This week’s game could be another high scoring game for Patriots as they will be playing a injury riddled Buffalo team. Here are your CLNS [...]

I tried to come up with a new angle to discuss the Bills-Patriots "rivalry" for this week's predictions post, but ended up taking a different approach for my submission because it got too lengthy. Instead, I thought I'd...
