The Buffalo Bills are back on at a 1 PM window after two weeks this Sunday as they prepare to visit the New England Patriots this week. After this matchup against a struggling Patriots team, they prepare for a tough portion of their schedule for both October and November. This is the kind of game that Buffalo should easily take, seeing as how there are huge gaps between both teams.

The Bills have the better overall roster, the better quarterback, more efficient weapons, and their defense ranks higher in sacks, takeaways and points allowed. With that being said, it is a divisional game in which they are always the toughest to play and at the end of the day, Bill Belichick is still one of the greatest defensive minds of all time, if not the best.

While New England historically has the best of Buffalo, the Bills have beaten the Patriots in every meeting except for one since 2020. This is the first meeting between Buffalo and New England this season and this will be a true test for Buffalo to see if last week's game against the Giants was just a bad game, or if they truly have some concerns moving forward.

Here are the five keys to victory for the Buffalo Bills going into Week 7.
