The Buffalo Bills face the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football to kickoff Week 14 later tonight. An AFC East rivalry game on primetime, the Bills (8-3) will be looking to move back ahead of the Miami Dolphins for the division lead while the Patriots (6-5) are fourth in the division and currently on the outside of the AFC playoff picture, but could jump back into contention with a win on Thursday.
Will the Bills keep the pressure on Miami with a win tonight? Can the Patriots pull off the upset to tighten up the division and force themselves back into contention for the division title and the playoffs?
