You can even find this number a little bit lower if you shop around across the market, but the Bills have a much higher ceiling than the Patriots and we can throw out one of the two data points from this season. That first game in Buffalo was played in awful conditions and the Bills really need to be able to throw the football in order to have success. What we saw in the second game is much more indicative of what we should expect.

In the first game, Buffalo was favored, but New England was favored in the second game at home. Buffalo did struggle to stop the run in both matchups, but Josh Allen threw for 314 yards when the game wasn’t played in a wind tunnel and also had 64 yards on the ground.

Buffalo has the better offense, the better defense and a quarterback with more experience in these types of games at the NFL level. New England will get respect because of the Bill Belichick coaching factor and that strong ground game, but Buffalo did a number on rookie quarterback Mac Jones in the second meeting and running back Damien Harris had one big run that made his numbers look better than they were.

Pick: Bills -4.5
