The Patriots host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and hope to clinch the number one seed to secure home field throughout the playoffs. Last time these two teams met Buffalo walked away with the 34-31 win.
Ryan Johnston and Mike Flynn were in for Toucher & Rich and they talked with Mark Kelso from the Bill’s Radio Network about Sunday’s game.
The Bills handed New England their first loss of the season and were one of only three teams to beat them. With a record of 6-9 what happened to the Bills since they faced the Pats back in week three?
“Injuries certainly hurt them pretty significantly with having the guys they had injured. I mean they lost three key guys their best offensive player Fred Jackson, their best offensive lineman in Eric Wood and then Kyle Williams too, so that was part of the problem.”
Ryan Fitzpatrick started off the season really well, but hasn’t played great lately. He got a new deal done in the middle of the season, but how is the organization feeling about him now?
“I don’t think there has been any waiver of confidence in him and his ability and what he can do, but certainly the contract has raised some questions with fans.”
With Sunday being the last game of the season for the Bills how motivated will they be to win?
“Heck yeah they’re motivated, they better be if not you have to question the characters of they guys in the locker room.”
