Since Bill Belichick arrived in Foxboro, he has simply owned Buffalo with a staggering overall record. On Monday night, the Bills will attempt to sweep the Patriots for the first time since The Bills are simply rolling right now and playing as well as any team in the NFL in the second half of the regular season. If not for a Hail Mary in Arizona, they would own an eight-game winning streak. The rushing attack has just been okay, but the passing game has been elite.
In 16 games last season, he threw for just over 3, yards with 20 touchdowns to nine interceptions. This is an aggressive Buffalo offense that likes to throw on first down and take its fair share of deep shots. Not surprisingly, the Bills rank in the top five in explosive play rate per Sharp Football Stats.
There have been some positive signs of late, especially in the four games since their bye. Those reasons include:. However, if they continue trending up into the postseason, this team is a bona-fide Super Bowl contender. However, the Patriots are getting almost no production through the air. The secondary has been a bit better, but recently lost Gilmore for the season to injury.
The biggest bright spot of this Patriots team has been their special teams, which rank No. This team is just devoid of talent on offense and the defense had as much attrition in the offseason as any team in the NFL. Everybody wants to back the Bills, while nobody seems to want to back the Patriots anymore. Can the Bills maintain this extremely high level on offense?
Remember when everybody was in love with the Rams just a few weeks ago? In fairness, the Patriots have struggled since while the Bills have continued to play tremendous football, which has caused me to continue to bump them in my power ratings. From a total perspective, I do see value on the under at 46 or higher. And on defense, I expect Belichick to sit back and dare Buffalo to run the ball just like the first meeting this season when the total closed 41 although wind played a factor.
The Patriots should have success on the ground and hit enough explosive running plays to keep this competitive. That does not bode well on Monday night as both Devin Singletary and Zack Moss were able to make some gains on the ground last week. With that being said, where are the bettors placing their money to begin Week XX? All the odds and info are provided by DraftKings Sportsbook. Yes, the public is percent right. The Bills are better than the Patriots in all three phases.
They have the better quarterback, wide receivers, offensive line, defense, and even special teams. The only way the Pats keep this close is if they can control the clock with their running game. The point total for this Monday contest is set at Yes, the public is right, once again. In their last four wins, the Bills have scored an average of However, in their last two games, Buffalo has allowed 24 and 22 points, respectively.
Keep reading to reveal our full predictions, and visit BetQL. One of the hottest teams in football right now hails from Buffalo, which happens to be of the coldest cities in the nation. But the NFL has been aware for some time now. Their path of fury last struck Denver, where they bewildered the Broncos Allen enjoys a group of already-successful wide receivers, but he has arguably made each one of them better this season. He also has a career-best 1, receiving yards and Rookie and fellow receiver Gabriel Davis has found paydirt a whopping six times.
Veteran slot-man Cole Beasley, also having a career year, has 79 catches and a Three other pass-catchers have at least three scores. Veteran speedster John Brown, out since Week 10 with an ankle injury, has two TDs of his own and could return soon. Long story short, this passing offense is in full gear. If second-year back Devin Singletary and rookie Zack Moss can find consistency in the running game for offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, this team will be looking at more than just a run at the conference.
The Bills are giving their fan base a regular season that New England fans have come to expect year in and year out. They clinched their first AFC East title in 25 years with their fourth straight win last week, their second such winning streak this season. And with the Steelers loss last Monday, Buffalo now finds itself on the fast-track to the No. Things are good for Bills Mafia. But Belichick also likely never anticipated things could go so poorly with Newton under center.
A year veteran and three-time Pro Bowler, Newton will assuredly finish with career lows in just about every category. He has just completions, 2, passing yards, and five touchdowns in 13 starts with the Pats. His QB rating is just Similarly, the Panthers had just six wins that year, which may end up being how many New England finishes with this year.

Bills vs. Patriots Week 16 Predictions, Odds, Preview.
The underdog is on a ATS run in this rivalry with the Patriots cashing in that role for the first time earlier this season. On the strength of New England's defense and maybe some sloppy Buffalo offense , backing the Patriots to make it two straight for themselves, and five straight without a loss ATS for the underdog in this rivalry feels like it makes the most sense.
