Patriots at Bills
Sun 12/24 @ 1:00pm ET
Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA
So far this season, Taylor has already registered 2314 yards and thirteen touchdowns as well as four interceptions. However, LeSean McCoy remains the top rusher for the Bills after recording 1057 yards. With two touchdowns and 457 yards in his name, Charles Clay remains the top receiver before the Patriots game on Sunday. Currently, the Patriots are 11-3, after their Week-14 shocking loss to Miami. However, they bounced back last Sunday to beat the Steelers in a highly controversial game in which Tom Brady recorded 298 yards, one touchdown, and one interception to improve New England Patriots Odds.
So far this year, Brady has 4163 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 7 picks, while running back Dion Lewis remains the top rusher for the Pats with 674 yards and 4 touchdowns. The top receiver for New England is Rob Gronkowski with 1017 yards, 7 touchdowns as well as 64 catches. When analyzing their previous 8 games vs the AFC East, the Buffalo Bills are 2-6 against the spread. They are also 1-4 against the spread in the last five games in their home turf, New Era Filed. New England are 6-1 and 5-1 against the spread in the last 7 games and 6 games following an “against the spread” victory respectively. The Buffalo Bills continue to stun their opponents and fans to show that they are still in pursuit of the Wild Card. In the last three games, the defense of Buffalo Bills has allowed only sixteen points or less. It was on December 3 when the New England Patriots beat them 23-3 after which they strengthened their defense lines. The matchup on Christmas Eve will prove that Brady can shatter the defense pf the plucky Bills once again. New England will have to win this game convincingly. Unsurprisingly, the Patriots are too superior for the Bills because the former heavily beat the latter three weeks ago.
Couple of Things to Remember with the Patriots Gronk looked great following suspension
After being suspended for one game, the Patriots Rob Gronkowski started against the Steelers on Sunday after his return. His suspension followed after the NFL found him guilty of hitting Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White late. Sean Davies, the Steelers safety, could not keep up with Gronkowski who recorded 168 yards and nine INT in that game.
The Brady bunch were brilliant on the road in 2017
The New England Patriots won their last game on the road this year on Week 15 to finish the season 7-1 playing outside Gillette Stadium. In the NFL, good teams maintain back-to-back victories on the road and the Patriots were invincible in their opponents’ turf this season.
Patriots rule the AFC East
As soon as they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Patriots won the AFC East for the fourteenth time in the last fifteen years. The impressive dominant display of football over the years shows that the Patriots have been relentless in their title winning ways.
