THE TEAM NEWS

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

  • New England made it three wins in a row as they racked up at least 30 points for the third successive game to start the year and despite not playing any teams that are likely to be challenging in the post-season, it is still an impressive start by the Patriots.
  • Julian Edelman will be questionable to appear for the Patriots after suffering a chest injury in last week's game and he could only log a limited practice in Wednesday’s first session of the week.
  • QB Tom Brady was also reduced to a limited appearance but he was nursing a sore calf and was simply taking it easy in order to protect his body ahead of Sunday’s game but there is greater concern for the shoulder injury that also meant DE Michael Bennett was limited.

BUFFALO BILLS

  • Buffalo's superb start to the season continued as they improved to 3-0 with a late, come-from-behind win against Cincinnati but they now face a huge test of their credentials as they host the current Super Bowl champions.
  • Bills RG Jon Feliciano could be set to miss some game time after suffering a neck injury in last week's victory over the Bengals but was not able to take any contact in the early practices of the week.
  • RB Devin Singletary is still struggling with the hamstring injury that ruled him out of last week’s game but a return to practice on Thursday is a positive sign and he will hope to suit-up on Sunday.

THE PREDICTION

New England's dominant start to the season continued and their defense are yet to concede a TD through Week 3. They will face a tricky test here against a Buffalo side that are also 3-0 and have been one of the surprise packages so far but the Patriots should be able to improve to 4-0. They are likely to be tested more than any other side this season but it is likely to be a step too far for the Bills who should fall short despite putting up a valiant effort.
