Tonight's Patriots vs Bills live stream for Monday Night Football will deliver the matchup AFC East fans have been waiting for. Buffalo (7-4) was thought to be the new team to beat after the Brady era had ended in New England, but now Mac Jones has led a quick turnaround for the Patriots (8-4).

This NFL live stream will be the first installment of what should be many "Jones vs Allen" battles.

The Patriots are the hottest team in the NFL as they extended their wining streak to six games with a 36-13 win over the Titans last week. Mac Jones had one of his best games of the season as he threw for a season high 310 yards with two touchdowns and posted a passer rating of 123. During the six game win streak Jones has thrown nine touchdowns with just two interceptions.

The Bills are looking to put two wins together for the first time since October 3rd and October 10th. Since then they have only alternated wins and losses. Last week they were able to handle their business against the Saints with a 31-6 win on Thanksgiving. Josh Allen threw four touchdowns in the win, but also threw two interceptions.

Buffalo took both meetings with the Pats last season, including winning their second matchup by way of a 38-9 blow out. Allen torched the Pats for 320 yards and four touchdown passes in that game. This game will likely not feature big scoring numbers for either club as the Patriots and Bills are one and two respectively in the NFL for fewest points allowed per game.

Betting Odds: The Bills are currently 3-point favorites against the Patriots. The over under is 39.

Patriots: The Patriots defense stayed hot last week as they forced Tennessee into five fumbles, taking away three, while J.C. Jackson came up with his seventh interception of the season, second to only the Cowboys’ Trevon Diggs who has eight. Wide receiver Kendrick Bourne caught both of Mac Jones' touchdown passes last week, while Jakobi Meyers caught five passes for 98 yards.  Pats' tight end Hunter Henry has enjoyed leading all tight ends in football in touchdowns, but has had his total stall at seven over the last two weeks. 

Bills: Speaking of tight ends, Dawson Knox continued his breakout season catching two touchdowns last week to bring his total to seven on the year. He's now tied with Hunter Henry for most by a tight end this season. Knox has also tied wide receiver Stefon Diggs for the team lead in touchdowns.
