LAST TIME OUT
The defense ruled the game the last time the New England Patriots and the Buffalo Bills squared off. The Patriots marched into New Era Field en route to a 25-6 win to move to 6-2 on the year.
Devin McCourty sealed the deal with an 84-yard pick six with 5:54 remaining in the game. Just before that, Buffalo had a chance to make it a one-score game, but Jason Croom’s touchdown catch was reversed after the referees said he never had full possession of the ball.
