How and where to watch Buffalo Bills vs New England Patriots
In what is always a showpiece match up, fans can look forward to a contest between arguably the best defense and a team that knows how to win.
The NFL playoffs have arrived and its the Bills against the Patriots in what promises to be a massive game.
The Bills, The Patriots and the Cold
On Saturday’s night the Buffalo Bills will face the New England Patriots in what will undoubtedly be a clash for the ages. The last time these two met, it was a cold Monday night in December. The circumstances aren't very different coming into this weekend's post season show down. With extreme cold predicted for Saturday night's game, it will come down to the heat that the two teams can generate on the field before we have a clear idea of who is in and who is out.
Whats the context of the Bills vs Patriots?
It's been a year since the New England Patriots were in the NFL playoffs. Indeed, last year was the first time since the 2008 season that the Patriots weren't participating in the post season. With a record of 10-7 their season was solid but not stellar. As for their AFC East-rivals the Buffalo Bills, they come into the 2022 NFL Super Wild Card Weekend game with a 11-6 record, which is to say more or less the same as their opponents. The game will mark the 42nd time that the teams have met since 2000.
A look at the Buffalo Bills
With arguably the best defense in the NFL, the Bills will be confident coming into this game. Buffalo has given no quarter this season. Having entered the post season on the back of a four-game winning streak, the Bills have not allowed any opponent to score more than 21 points in a game. If we also consider the fact that the Patriots are not in their best moment, then one has to wonder whether the result is in doubt. New England has lost their last three games after a win against the worst team in the league, the Jacksonville Jaguars. It's also important to note that in those losses, the Patriots committed seven turnovers.

What about the New England Patriots?
If there is one thing that the Patriots will be looking for, its running back Damien Harris. In his third year in the NFL, Harris running back from Alabama has rushed for 100 yards and scored a touchdown in each of his three games against Buffalo. The last time he faced the Bills, Harris rushed for three touchdowns. Indeed, Harris tied for the most by a Patriots player in a game against Buffalo in franchise history.
