New England Patriots

vs

Buffalo Bills
Sunday, October 12, 2014 1:00 PM ET
Ralph Wilson Stadium

 

The 3-2 New England Patriots travel to Buffalo on Sunday to face the 3-2 Bills in a battle of AFC East co-leaders. The Patriots have been a betting disappointment in the early going, just 2-3 ATS, but responded to a devastating 41-14 loss to Kansas City in Week 4 with a 43-17 home win over Cincinnati in Week 5.

New England faces a Bills squad that owns the NFL's top passing defense, but is also enduring a quarterback controversy. Starting QB EJ Manuel was replaced last Sunday by veteran Kyle Orton, who led the Bills to a 17-14 comeback win over Detroit. The Bills are 1-9 in their last 10 home dates against the Pats, but are a respectable 7-3 ATS overall in their last 10 at home.
