The Bills vs Patriots live stream is coming up and this matchup ain’t what it used to be just a few seasons ago. New England used to have their way will Buffalo, more so than any other team in the Brady-Belichick era. Brady alone went 32-3 against the Bills in his time with the Pats, but as any member of Bills Mafia will tell you, “That was then. This is now.” And now the Bills are looking to make this NFL live stream their fifth-straight win against the Post-Brady Pats!

The Bills (4-2) have hit a few bumps in the road this season. They started their 2023 campaign with a loss to the Jets before rattling off three 30-point wins in a row. Then they went to London for just the second time in their history and seemed to leave all their firepower stateside. They lost to the Jaguars, 25-20 in London then and only had just enough to get by the Giants last week in North Jersey, winning a 14-9. 

We’ve seen the best and worst of quarterback Josh Allen this year. The two-time pro bowler threw three interceptions in their Week 1 loss to the Jets, then threw his first perfect game against the Dolphins in Week 3 with a 158.3 passer rating. But now the offense has hit a bit of a snag, with Allen throwing interceptions in back-to-back games, putting him on a pace to throw a career-high 17 picks this season.      

At least one constant for the Bills has been their defense. They come into this matchup third in the NFL for the fewest points allowed (14.8 PPG) and have a share of the lead with the Ravens for most sacks this season (24). 

Meanwhile, the Patriots are in wildly unfamiliar territory. At 1-5, they own a share of the second-worst record in the NFL. Quarterback Mac Jones is on the ropes with his starting job as he’s led an attack that has scored the second-fewest points per game this season (12 PPG) while posting the fourth-worst passer rating in the league (74.4). 

The New England defense is also a work in progress. The Patriots allow the ninth-highest points per game in the league (25.4 PPG). Takeaways have also been hard to come by for Belichick’s defense. They have just three on the year, the fewest in the NFL.

DraftKings has the Bills as big 7.5-point road favorites against the Patriots. The over/under is 41. Buffalo has won the last four meetings with the Patriots by an average of 17 points.
