Two AFC East teams having very different seasons will be featured this week on Monday Night Football as the New England Patriots take on the Buffalo Bills.
New England overcame a slow start to return to its typical dominant self at 5-2. The Patriots have won four straight, with their last two victories coming against the division-leading Chicago Bears and Kansas City Chiefs.
The Bills, meanwhile, have stumbled to a 2-5 record and are on their third starting quarterback of the season, Derek Anderson. Buffalo is currently last in the NFL in points per game (11.4) and passing yards per game (129.4).
This matchup has been extremely lopsided since Brady took the reigns in New England. He is 28-3 in his career against the Bills.
Sporting News will provide live updates of Patriots vs. Bills on Monday Night Football.
