Prediction

The Patriots have a total of 21 players listed on the injury report, which is never good for a NFL team and a division rival. Buffalo is still red hot and they’ve won seven of their last eight games, and they’re undefeated since their bye week. Buffalo has clinched the division, and it wouldn’t be any sweeter to Bills Mafia for their squad to stomp on the Patriots who are missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008. 71% of the public consensus has Buffalo covering the spread, and rightfully so. New England has looked awful the last two weeks putting up a total of 15 points, and their passing game is nearly non-existent. The Bills will take care of business before heading into the final week of the season, where they’ll likely rest a bulk of their starters.
