Are the Bills now the AFC East class? Or does Bill Belichick regain his absolute dominance over the division after a year-long hiatus? Week 13’s “Monday Night Football” showdown between the Patriots and the Bills will finally begin to give us some answers, with the 8-4 Patriots playing the 7-4 Bills for divisional supremacy, at least temporarily.
After a difficult start to the season, the Patriots have won six straight games. During that time, his point spread is +148. Belichick’s defense has been nothing short of dominant, yielding an absurd 10.5 points per game. Part of this is because old stars like Dont’a Hightower have adapted to their roles, part of this is because Jalen Mills is profiting from some very impressive hedging schemes, and part of this is due to competition. that the Patriots have faced since last year. Cowboys in week 6.
The Bills finally got their game right against the Saints on Thanksgiving, a 31-6 laugh that felt even more dominant than the scoreboard indicated. Despite two interceptions, Josh Allen threw for four touchdowns and 260 yards, while also running the ball well. Stefon Diggs had a good game to himself, catching seven of 74 and a touchdown. The Bills will look to carry that momentum into a second straight primetime meeting, this time playing at home against a divisional rival.
The Patriots lost their first two bouts to the Bills in the post-Brady era last season, but this looks like a very different New England team. Orchard Park is a tough place to visit – Bills fans can be as loud as any group in the league, but the Patriots have shown in recent weeks that they can hamper offenses. Now they’ll have to do it against the best offense they’ve played since Halloween, when they won 27-24 against the Chargers, if they want to retain their number one spot in the AFC East heading into their break next week.
