New England Patriots (8-4) at Buffalo Bills (7-4)

Monday, December 6, 8:15PM ET

For most of the 2021 season, I’ve been on the Buffalo Bills bandwagon as a firm believer that they were the best team in the AFC. After the last few weeks, I’m starting to think that’s no longer the case. Could the New England Patriots already be ready to return to the top?

It’s possible. To start, we need to find out who the kings of the AFC East are. This game will provide the perfect opportunity to answer that question as the Patriots continue their dominant performance through the second half of this season. The Bills are talented, but are they ready to stop this freight train?

If you look solely at their talent and potential, an argument could be made that the Bills are the better team. Unfortunately, they’ve been wildly inconsistent this season and often fail to live up to their potential. Josh Allen and the Buffalo offense have laid eggs before, and there’s a good possibility it happens again against this elite New England defense.

Brady’s only been gone for two years, and the Patriots have already clawed their way back to contender status. A win against the Bills will further cement them as one of the teams to beat in the AFC in 2021.

Prediction: Patriots win 23-20 | Spread: Bills (-3)
