Seven storylines to follow when the Patriots play Buffalo

Named the One Buffalo Organization of the Game, the Matt Urban Hope Center was selected for the award by the Bills players, for the non-profit's commitment to bettering the Western New York Community.

Patterson is averaging 32.3 yards per kickoff return, third-best in the league.

Josh Allen, the Wyoming quarterback the Bills made the seventh overall pick in the April draft, may prove to be the long-term solution in Buffalo, but he's thrown more than twice as many interceptions (five) as touchdown passes (two) and is sidelined with a right elbow injury. "Can't just come away with field goals all day". In the win, the offense for the Patriots had a tough night, but the defense stepped up against a poor Buffalo offense.

If you tried the play in "Tecmo Super Bowl", it was usually thwarted before the quarterback even got the ball back, broken up in the backfield by the defense.

Buffalo's defense has not been in great form this season.

With Brady working the middle of the field, the slot was once again a productive alignment for the Patriots offense.

The Bills offense continued its anemic ways in being held to under 7 points for the fourth time this season - once more than that's happened from 2013-17. Buffalo also hasn't scored a touchdown in the first half since rookie quarterback Josh Allen scored on 14-yard run in a 13-12 win against Tennessee on October 7. Following another Patriots punt, the defense stepped up to give the team another scoring opportunity.

Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy had two sacks on the night, while teammate Adrian Clayborn added one.

But one that landed in the end zone was likely what captured the attention of authorities and ultimately resulted in Abdallah being arrested by the Erie County Sheriff's Office and charged with disorderly conduct. "This was a game where they were moving the ball and couldn't get into the end zone", McCourty said.

In all, the Bills ran four trick plays on their opening possession. Brady converted two third downs with a 26-yard pass to Edelman and a 9-yard strike to White. Though he had a team-best 82 yards receiving, McCoy finished with just 13 yards rushing and has yet to score this season.

It was a tough loss for fans to watch and a tough game for players to be a part of. They are capable of covering well and coming up with big plays. Were it not for Devin McCourty's interception, Monday may have been the latest example of a close shave that should've have been for New Engalnd. "We don't do nothing on offence, and it's not fair on them".
