Bills vs Patriots

With Tom Brady under center for New England, the Patriots posted a remarkable 33-3 record against the Buffalo Bills in AFC East divisional play; the absence of Brady and the emergence of Josh Allen, however, has made the Bills the new team to beat in the division.

Following a second AFC East title and early playoff exit, Bills General Manager Brandon Beane's offseason moves have landed the team atop many leaderboards going into 2022-23, as well as the odds-on favorites to win Super Bowl LVII. Here is a list of the team's notable additions from the offseason:

  • Signed LB Von Miller to a 6-year, $120M deal
  • Signed RB Duke Johnson to a 1-year, $1.27M deal
  • Signed TE OJ Howard to a 1-year, $3.5M deal
  • Signed WR Jamison Crowder to a 1-year, $2M deal
  • Signed G Rodger Saffold to a $1-year, 6.25M deal

After spending more money than any other NFL team last offseason, this offseason looked much different for Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. The team managed to return to the Wild Card round of the playoffs under rookie QB Mac Jones, but after losing CB J.C. Jackson to the Chargers and still lacking a true No.1 wide receiver on offense, the team has more questions than answers going into 2022-23.

SportsRec Prediction

  • Week 13 Final: Bills 30, Patriots 14
  • Week 18 Final: Patriots 21, Bills 17

Josh Allen and the Bills will be in the midst of hitting their stride by the time Week 13 rolls around, and with the level of depth and talent that the team has, it will be difficult for anyone to beat them at that point. By Week 18, they should have a playoff spot locked up and be able to rest their starters, which will give Mac Jones and the Patriots an opportunity to steal one on the road.
