CLICK HERE to listen to this week’s Buffalowdown Podcast. This season has seemed to fly by as the Bills head into the month of December at 6-5. Admit it, this is season is still somewhat of a surprise. Just consider the trades that were made over the summer. Last Sunday the Bills managed to go into Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri and come out with a win. With a defensive game plan and a conservative offensive approach, they found a way to get a W. Although the win was far from pretty, it was a stark contrast to the way this team play the previous three weeks. In those three weeks the defense gave up an average of 45 points per game.
Unfortunately, this weekend’s game may be back to that trend as the Bills host and always tough New England team, led by quarterback Tom Brady. Brady has had his way against the Bills in December and throughout his career, with a 26-2 record against Buffalo. I respect Brady, but at the same time have a great deal of angst for all of the blows he has laid on my beloved Buffalo Bills. For the Bills to have the slightest chance to beat this Patriot team, a lot of pressure is going to be put on the Bills offense to put up points. New England enters the game with the number one ranked passing offense, and ranks 3rd in points scored per game.
Tom Brady has continued to show that he can find ways to torch the Buffalo Bills. With that in mind, the offense needs to take advantage of a Patriots defense who started the season sub-par. Currently the Patriots defense ranks 30th in total defense, 31st in passing defense, and 22nd in rush defense. Perhaps we can hope that LeSean McCoy has a strong day running the football and Tyrod is able to distribute the ball to several different receivers.
Topics for discussion on this week’s podcast include:
