New England Patriots vs Buffalo Bills is a major game taking place in week 4 on Sunday as the Patriots look to rectify a stuttering start to their regular season. The match kicks off at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
Many fancied the Patriots as dead certs to make the playoffs this season, especially after they added both Mario Williams and Mark Anderson to their rosters. However, things have not gone as New England fans had hoped, and their lackluster start has seen them slump to a 1-2 record coming into week 4.
Many analysts have predicted that the Patriots will come good against the Bills on Sunday, but others have highlighted the fact that Buffalo did beat New England in week 3 last season.
Others have also argued that the Bills team is even better this year, and they certainly would love to add to the Patriot's woes. However, Buffalo are contending with a problematic running back situation, and injuries to Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller have disrupted their preparations.
This promises to be a great game with the Bills looking to move to 3-1 and dump their AFC East rivals to what would be a shocking 1-3 season opening.
The Patriots will be looking to the reliability and experience of Tom Brady to settle them. If Brady can have a good game on Sunday and allow the Patriots to build their confidence in the early exchanges then New England could make a good comeback today.
Wide receiver Wes Welker will be one to watch for the Patriots. He put on a spectacular performance against the Baltimore Ravens - eight receptions for 142 yards, and if he and Brady can connect again here the Bills could struggle to deal with the Patriot's passing offense.
