Buffalo Bills 2020 Opponent Preview: New England Patriots
The New England Patriots have dominated the AFC East for two decades. Is this the year the Buffalo Bills are able to get past the Patriots?
There is no question that the New England Patriots have dominated the AFC East and unfortunately the Buffalo Bills are included in that. The duo of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have resulted in six Super Bowl championships and 17 AFC East titles since 2001.
For a majority of the Patriots run, the Bills were not very competitive in these contests. However, since Sean McDermott the gap between the two franchises seemed to shrink and this past season, while the Patriots won both the margin victory was seven points or less.
The New England Patriots, last year seemed to be pretty par for the course from what has been expected from them. They went 12-4, won the AFC East but weren’t high enough in the division to earn a bye. They ended up playing the Tennessee Titans on Wild Card Weekend and actually lost at home by a final score of 20-13.
Entering 2020, the race for the division seemed to be wide open with the departure of Tom Brady and the Buffalo Bills look to be in great position to beat the New England Patriots for the first time since 2016.
This is a recap of what the New England Patriots have done this offseason and a preview of the two games against the Buffalo Bills this coming season.
