The New England Patriots (10-7) are hitting the road to take on the Buffalo Bills (11-6) in the wild-card round of the playoffs.
The Patriots and Bills split the regular season series and they’ve appeared to be on an even playing field throughout the year. The Patriots have a stronger rush attack and a great defense, but Josh Allen and the Bills’ offense is much more explosive. Mac Jones has proven he struggles to come from behind, so the Patriots will have to get off to a hot start for a chance to win.
The Bills won their final four regular season games and they’re entirely healthy entering the game. This will be a tremendous challenge for Jones and a Patriots team that’s been struggling as of late.
