The Buffalo Bills are set to play their final home game of the regular season on Sunday against the New England Patriots. There will be plenty on the line as the Bills are currently in a playoff spot but haven't clinched a berth yet and will need to continue to win out.

While the Patriots are heading towards a Top 5 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills can't take them lightly. They have only four wins on the season but one of those wins was over Buffalo earlier in the year. The Patriots came away with a 29-25 victory in Week 7 and was during a stretch where there were a lot of questions about how good this team actually is.

On top of that, the Patriots have gone 2-1 over the past three games with wins over the Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos, two teams also still in the playoff race. When looking ahead to this matchup, these are five players that fans should watch closely.
