Buffalo Bills Stats & Form
The Buffalo Bills were an early AFC favorite and now will have a chance to fight for the top of the division against the leading New England patriots.
The Bills have split their last six games and are currently second in AFC East with a 7-4 record, a half a game behind their Monday night opponent.
In seven wins, the Bills have averaged 37 points, with Josh Allen throwing 19 TDs passing, scoring three rushing, with five interceptions.
Since beating Kansas City to improve to 4-1 on Oct. 10, the Bills have been stuck in a lose-one, win-one pattern over their past six outings.
Last week Buffalo came to a comfortable 31-6 road win against the New Orleans Saints.
Josh Allen passed for 260 yards and four touchdowns as the Bills throttled New Orleans’ short-handed offense. Dawson Knox caught two touchdown passes, giving him a franchise-best seven TDs in a single season by a tight end. His second score gave the Bills a 24-0 lead.
Stefon Diggs had seven receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown, and running back Matt Breida turned a short pass into a 23-yard score in a dominant victory that came just four days after a 26-point home loss to Indianapolis.
