1.) Top 3 offense vs. Bottom 3 offense
On paper, this game is a total mismatch. Despite the Bills’ struggles the last two weeks on offense, they are coming into this game with third ranked offense. They are ranked 7th in passing and 12th in rushing. They have the second highest point differential at +84 and are averaging 29 points a game.
Meanwhile, New England currently has the 31st ranked overall offense, the second lowest scoring offense with 72 points, and have 8 total touchdowns on the year. The Patriots also have the second worst point differential difference at -80.
New England comes into this game with 19th ranked passing offense and ranked 26th in the run game. The Bills have shown the last two weeks that the stats do not mean anything if they can’t get going on the field.
However, with the recent history between these two teams and the lack of firepower in New England, this should be a clean up game for Buffalo before they start a tough part of their schedule in late October and November.
