The Patriots take on the Bills for the first time this year. The Patriots have a negative record after losing two games in a row. It's the first time they've had a negative record in ten years. They are looking to avoid a three game skid against a Bills team that beat them in Orchard Park around this time last year. The last time the Patriots lost three in a row? It was the Buffalo Bills who gave them that third loss, 10 years ago. Here are some players that need to step up today to prevent history from repeating itself.Chandler Jones- The Buffalo Bills have only allowed one sack this year. One. The Patriots barely got any pressure on Joe Flacco last Sunday, which of course could partially be contributed to the replacement referees' non calls. Still, we saw the effect of not getting any pressure on the quarterback, he will dice up our mediocre secondary. Chandler Jones is already the Patriots best pass rusher, he has to have a big day against this Bills offensive line.St...

Ras-I Dowling Missing in Patriots Defense Again, But Secondary Plays Strong Without Him

Call the authorities, the Patriots have lost a former second-round pick. For the third week in a row, second-year cornerback Ras-I Dowling was largely missing from the Patriots' defensive gameplan.

You Make Your Own Luck: Patriots 52, Bills 28

There were time yesterday, where I felt like I had stumbled into some alternate universe.  The Patriots were trailing 21-7 in the second half to the Bills and inching dangerously close to a 1-3 record, which would have essentially put them three games behind the Bills with tie-breakers in the race for the AFC crown.  At that point, we had already witnessed a fumble by Gronkowski...

Buffalo Bills vs Patriots: Look for Mario Williams to have big day

In the wake of the Buffalo Bills and their fans taking over the city of Cleveland last Sunday the focus now switches to the hated New England Patriots.  Year in and year out the Pats have bossed the Bills around like a drill Sargent in basic training.  Minus one big comeback in week three of last season as the only blemish on that record.  Being at the game last year was an amazing...

In a Tale of Two Halves, Patriots Shred Bills 52-28

The New England Patriots played their favorite whipping boy of the Bill Belichick era the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park NY.  The problem was in the first half Buffalo looked anything like whipping boys. The Bills were able to stymie the Patriots offense for a little over 30 minutes on Sunday.  After a quick start and a Stevan Ridley 6-yard run...

Ed Reed Fined $21,000 for Smashing Deion Branch During Ravens' Win Over Patriots

Deion Branch was cool with the call. The referees were not. Soon after Ravens safety Ed Reed steamed across the field and blasted Branch hard with his shoulder in Sunday night's Baltimore win, Branch and Reed could be seen talking with each other and smiling on the field. Branch appeared to be saying he was fine with the hit, even as the referees threw a penalty flag at Reed...

Tom Brady tells Buffalo and the haters to screw off

(via Deadspin) This was after Brady’s run into the end-zone to tie the game so we have to wonder who he was saying ” ‘eff off” to. Was it the Buffalo fans who were saying mean things about his wife and mommy? Was it the CBS and NFL crews who were questioning the Patriots and their young team? Was it Josh McDaniels who Brady got into a minor war of words with during the second...
