Bills vs Patriots Preview

The AFC East title is very much on the line Sunday as the Patriots and Bills meet up at Gillette Stadium. The Bills ended their drought last year with their first division crown since 1995, but now are trying to chase down the Patriots, who ran the AFC East for the better part of the last two decades.

The Patriots saw their seven-game win streak end last week, falling to the Colts 27-17. Rookie of the Year front-runner Mac Jones didn’t have his best game, tossing a pair of interceptions.

“I think every experience is a learning experience. Everyone’s different. Everyone comes from different places, but whether you win or you lose, you can still learn. In college, you lose games and you have to learn from it,” Jones said this week. “In the NFL, obviously, it’s hard to win, so you have to learn from the errors you make personally, which are the most important because that’s how it affects the team. I’m always very hard on myself because if I don’t play great, then it affects the people around me. Those guys are playing really well and I can play a lot better. It just goes back to me.”

The Patriots could also wrangle the top seed in the AFC if the right things fall their way the rest of the year. That would come with an all-important bye.

“It comes down to controlling what you can control and that’s your attitude and your effort,” Jones said. “We’re trying to do that every day and, eventually, we’ll stack days together and we’ll get a chance to play, like I said, against a really good team who have a lot of talented players, but they’re also really well-coached.”

The Bills stopped a two-game losing streak last week by beating up on the Panthers, 31-14. Quarterback Josh Allen led the way, notching a trio of touchdowns in the victory.

“We’re just trying to find ways to win games, and we did that today,” Allen said after the win. “We’re going to need that going forward. We all know who we have next week. It’s no secret.”

Like many teams around the league, the Bills will be shorthanded against the Patriots. Among the players missing is wide receiver Cole Beasley — one of Allen’s favorite targets.

“For me, I try to pay as little attention to it as possible,” Allen said of the COVID-19 issues springing up across the NFL. “Every game from here on out is like a playoff game, the type of atmosphere that’s going to be there. I mean, the energy is going to be extremely high, we know that the crowd’s gonna be really loud. We know that so we got to prepare as best as we can and again, be prepared as possible before we step foot in that stadium on Sunday and not let it affect us and really just do our jobs.”
