    The Pats are coming!

    I'm looking forward to the next Monday Night game - to me, that is a real gauge of where this Bills team is. In AFC, the Pats are playing as well as anyone and they are at the peak right now, winning 6 in a row and blowing out win in 5 of them.

    They are another one of those physical teams on both side of the ball. May not have household names like they used to. But they have solid players all over and Belichick has done a great job of getting all of them playing collectively at a high level. It's bad match up to the Bills because it is not like we shut down one or two players and we have the game in our favor. It forces the entire team to play well. In particular in the trenches, DL/OL play may decide this game.

    Speaking of coaching, I used to think McDermott always get the Bills to play collectively better than the sum of individual talents. The 2017 9 - 7, 2018 6 - 10, 2019 10-6 records are all over-achieving results in my book. Not so this year (including the playoffs last year). Motivation, technical adaptation were all lagging behind.

    I do believe everyone, including the players, knows the importance of the two Pats games this year. So I do believe motivation is there. Yet I'm still not confident they will win even though I know no one is overlooking the Pats. It's back to fundamentals to me - making as little mistakes as possible. I can accept guys giving up plays because the guy across from you simply makes a better play than you do, like, say, Dane Jackson giving up a long completion. But, I don't want to see you take unnecessary penalties or make mental mistakes. Unfortunately this year, from Allen on down, too many guys are making those kind of mistakes too often.

    BB is going to try and take Diggs away and test Dane Jackson all night.

    Allen better chill and not let his emotions run all over the place that hero ball makes an appearance.

    Thier QB is going to win Rookie of the Year. He's been that good.

    If they try to quiet Diggs, then it's to Sanders, Davis, Beasley and Knox.

    Will Spencer Brown be back?

    Re: The Pats are coming!

    Recent history tells me the Bills squad that can't beat Lincoln Prep JV will take the field. Hope I am wrong, but Pats 59-0 would not surprise me.

    Brown and Lotulelei should both be back unless they got sick and weak.

    We know one thing for sure, anybody who’s near ready is going to be playing. A win like this sets us up to run the table.

    I think Bills win handily as I expect Brown to play. Star is a lazy entitled pos so can’t count on him to play through his booboo

    Re: The Pats are coming!

    Titans had 2 runners top 100yds rushing against them yesterday, neither Henry or Peterson were even dressed, and they pretty much fielded nobody at wide receiver. The Tennessee skill group on offense were pretty similar to what the Saints rolled out against us on Thanksgiving.

    Knox will be a factor

    NE will play ball control. dink and dunk and running the ball. 2001 Pats all over again

    The D will be fine as I am not worried about anyone on that offense

    but if you lose to the Jags you can lose to anyone. We shall see

    Re: The Pats are coming!

    Mac has been good but isn’t his passing game dink and dunk? They have a good D so Josh will have to have the same sort of game plan drawn up as last week… I hope. No one can take away Diggs on the short routes. The stadium is gonna be loud for the rook.

    Re: The Pats are coming!

    Worried about this one, we really havent fared well against other physical teams. Hopefully Spencer Brown and Star are back because we need them.

    Maybe off topic, but outside of the Chiefs, have we beat any teams this year when we played against their first string QB?

    Re: The Pats are coming!

    GreedoII is right. This is the early Tom Brady offense all over again. A run for 4, a pass to the back for 5, a screen for 9 kind of offense. The difference I see is that when you get Jones to 3rd and 7+ and you know he has to pass, he cannot do what Brady was doing - just get the ball pass the sticks. In theory, when you have to drive down the field against quality defenses, somewhere you are going to make a mistake or the other guy is going to make a play to force you to punt/field goal. But right now the Pats are executing at a peak level. And when the defense chips in with turnovers, blow out happens.

    There are a lot of similarities between the Pats and the Dolphins. Butt the Pats do have a quality O-Line and can run the ball. Therefore they are not consistently put into the 3rd and long situations that the Dolphins are asking Tua to handle.

    I said the Bills are a bad match up to them is because the Bills D is built to stop big plays and the Bills O is built to make big plays. Just the opposite what the Pats are doing.
