Bills vs. Patriots live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Monday Night Football’ game
The Bills host the Patriots on “Monday Night Football” for a battle for supremacy in the AFC East.
Josh Allen will lead the Bills (7-4) against Mac Jones and the Patriots (8-4), who will look to extend a six-game winning streak with a win at Buffalo. Allen will face the difficult task of driving the ball against the New England defense, who allowed just 85 passing yards in their 36-13 win over the Titans last week.
Allen helped the Bills gain momentum against the Saints’ defense in their 31-6 Thanksgiving win. He completed 23 of 28 passes for 260 yards with four touchdowns. Although Allen threw two interceptions, the Bills’ offense is recording 361 total yards and averaging 5.8 yards per game. Allen connected wide receiver Stefon Diggs for 74 yards with one touchdown and tight end Dawson Knox for 34 yards with two scores.

The Patriots offense will be challenged by the league’s top-ranked defense, which allows around 275.2 total yards per game. After beating Trevor Siemian last week, defensive end Mario Addison leads the Bills with four sacks. Rookie defensive end Gregory Rousseau follows close behind with three, but hasn’t registered a sack since tackling Patrick Mahomes in the Bills’ 38-20 win over the Chiefs on Oct. 10.
Despite the weather forecast showing strong winds in Buffalo, Patriots coach Bill Belichek will strategically structure the Patriots’ offensive approach. Rookie quarterback Jones threw for a record 310 yards with two touchdowns against the Titans and averaged a 71.9 completion percentage. As he connected with wide receivers Jakobi Meyers and Kendrick Bourne last week, Jones will be relying on running backs Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson against Buffalo. Harris leads the Patriots with 643 rushing yards and eight touchdowns while Stevenson has 351 rushing yards with three touchdowns.
