Week 18: Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots

The Buffalo Bills are going to wrap up the regular season against the New England Patriots and the hope was at the beginning of the season that this game wouldn’t be important as the Bills would have had the division wrapped up.

However, with two losses already in the AFC East it seems unlikely especially with how the Dolphins and Jets are playing right now. The good news for Buffalo is that they do end the regular season at home and that should give them the advantage here.

Prediction: Win (13-4)

While the Buffalo Bills have lost their last two games, the second half of the schedule seems to be more favorable and sets up well for them. The next two games are winnable for Buffalo and should give them some momentum heading into a key three-week stretch against AFC East opponents.

More importantly, three of the four remaining AFC East games are all at home and it wouldn’t be surprising to see them win each of those games. If they do that, they are once again back in a great position to win the division and potentially secure a first round bye in the playoffs.
