New England Patriots @ Buffalo Bills Preview

Josh Capps (@jcapps_) believes the Patriots defence will just be too much for Josh Allen and the Bills to handle

New England head to Western New York looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the season, but will come up against a fighting Buffalo team who also have a 3-0 record to protect.

Josh Allen and the Bills have proven they know how to win a game with two wins in New Jersey and a come from behind win against Cincinnati last weekend. They won’t go down with a whimper.

Buffalo will be looking to cause an upset at New Era Field, sending Brady & Co home with their first defeat, but it won’t be an easy task. Josh Allen will be a vital figure in the match-up, but he could well need an immaculate game if he wants to come away with a first victory against the Patriots.

So far this season Buffalo have turned over the ball six times, including multiple fumbles to which the Patriots defence will relish and want to keep their strong start.

The Patriots defence is going to be key if the Pats are going to win a seventh Superbowl and so far this year they have proven up to the fight. No touchdowns conceded with the defence on the field in three games finally suggest they don’t necessarily need Gronk in the fourth quarter to win them games.

The lack of personnel at wide receiver is a concern for Belichick but as happens every year, the Patriots always find a way!

This isn’t likely to be an easy ride for Brady, but the experience should prevail and hand Buffalo a first loss in 2019.

Ones to Watch:

Patriots: Josh Gordon – Some big catches for good yardage against the Jets last week. Could see lots more of the ball with Edelman not 100%.

Buffalo: Frank Gore – Game winning TD last weekend and leading rusher for the Bills. Keep and eye on Frank to penetrate the goal line if the Bills get in that red zone.

Prediction

Buffalo 13  New England 28
