This AFC East matchup between the Bills and Patriots is a particularly fascinating one as the 8-3 Bills visit the 6-5 Patriots.
The Bills are currently second in the division due to a head-to-head loss to the Miami Dolphins early in the season. Buffalo is on a two-game winning streak (following a two-game losing streak in Weeks 9 and 10), but they barely squeaked by the lowly Detroit Lions last week in their Thanksgiving Day matchup.
As for the Patriots, they are in fourth place in the AFC East and also played on Thanksgiving. Last Thursday, they lost a heartbreaker to the Minnesota Vikings after a tough no-touchdown call on a Hunter Henry goal-line “catch.” That loss halted a three-game winning streak by the Pats, who desperately need to win this game to stay alive in the ultra-competitive AFC playoff picture.
One interesting note to watch for in the Week 11 Thursday Night Football Bills-Patriots game. The Bills have won the last two meetings between the teams, with a 47-17 win in the Wild Card Round of the 2021 playoffs and a 33-21 victory in Week 16. In those two games, the Patriots didn’t force the Bills offense to punt once.
Can Buffalo keep that streak alive this Thursday? Follow the steps of how to watch Bills-Patriots above to tune in and find out.
