This week’s “Monday Night Football” matchup will be one of the biggest games in the AFC East in quite some time. The two best teams in the division will meet and the winner will have the advantage in the race for the divisional title.

The AFC East has historically been dominated by the Patriots. At least it has been for the past two decades. They won all but three titles from 2001 to 2020 and hope to be back in the winners column in 2023.

New England is on a six-game winning streak that has propelled them to the top of the division. If they want to stay there, they will need to beat Buffalo on the road to build a game and a half advantage over the Bills.

It will not be an easy task. Buffalo will play at home on Monday night and will have the backing of the noisy Bills mob. The Bills also have the most experienced quarterback, so it could prove crucial if there is any precipitation in this one.

Here’s everything you need to know about ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” game for Week 13, including start time and more.

Who is playing ‘Monday Night Football’ tonight?

  • Match: Patriots in Bills
  • Location: Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, NY

The Bills (7-4) host the Patriots (8-4) on “Monday Night Football” in Week 13. This matchup will go a long way in determining which team has the best chance of winning the AFC East crown. even if they meet again in week 16.

The Patriots enter the game on a six-game winning streak, the best in the NFL. They have beaten their opponents by an average of 24.7 points per game during that stretch and have only endured a single double-digit victory.

Mac Jones is operating efficiently and has proven to be the best rookie quarterback to date, but he has received a lot of help from two key parts of the team. New England’s defense is one of the NFL’s best and most experienced stopping units and is allowing 15.8 points per game, the league’s lowest. Meanwhile, Jones is surrounded by a good offensive line and running game that has helped him as well. However, it will be tested against Buffalo, as the Bills have a strong defense.

The Bills have hit some roadblocks after a 4-1 start to the season, but they have a strong, deep passing game led by Josh Allen and a defense that could shake Jones a bit. The Bills have a 30.2 percent pressure rate, the best in the NFL, and have allowed the fewest yards per game (275.2) and the second fewest points per game (16.5) so far this season. .

Buffalo lost Tre’Davious White to a torn ACL to the Saints, so that absence could be important for the Bills. They have good corner depth, but Bill Belichick will look to create mismatches and test that depth.

The Bills are playing at home, so they should have an advantage in this game. However, it is not expected to be too cold at game time, so conditions will not be as hostile as some December games in Buffalo.
