The Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots are two of the seven undefeated teams in the NFL so far in 2011, and the AFC East rivals will be battling this Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. EST.
The Bills have the No. 1 rushing attack in the NFL, and they will go up against the Patriots' Tom Brady and the NFL's No. 1 passing attack. The game will feature the top two ranked quarterbacks in the NFL in Brady and Ryan Fitzpatrick. The winner will claim at least a share of the AFC East division lead. There is also the matter of the Patriots' 15-game winning streak over the Bills on the line.
While many experts expected another banner season out of Brady (the reigning NFL MVP) and the Patriots, few would have predicted that the Bills offense would be so high-powered. Fitzpatrick has been able to match Brady's touchdown output, as both QBs have thrown seven TD passes already.
Coming into this game the Bills lead the NFL in scoring as they are averaging 39.5 points a game, while the Patriots are third with 36.5 points a game. So, Bills fans in attendance will probably be treated to a scoring fest, as it is anyone's guess how effective either defense will be.
We will look at some key developments and matchups to determine how this game could play out.
