    So what are the strengths and weakness of this Bills team? what are things the Pats need to look out for?

    Lookout for the numbers on the scoreboard to keep changing often under "Visitor" or "Patriots"

    Red Zone defense is among the best in the league.

    Special teams.

    Weakness for the Bills is RB, QB, 3rd down conversion rate is abysmal.

    Aaron Schobel is supposedly out as well. This will hurt their pass rush ability. Keymatchup will be how they play Whitner - will he help double on Moss, or will they leave him to stop Welker. Pick your poison

    It is quite remarkable Jauron has turned this around given their injuries at CB, LB. No doubt Jauron knows how to coach D. Now if only he had a QB going back to his days at Chicago, and Now Buffalo

    Kudos to him and I have lot more respect for his team than the whiney excuses giving panzies in the media are laying out excuses for the hurting colts.

    Bills have two weapons that can hurt us, special teams and the long ball quick strike. If the Pats don't give up anything in those areas they are golden. Of course, the Pats need to not give anything away, like funbles for TD's.

    Unless somethings just happened, he's playing. He had full Participation at practice yesterday. But you never know, but I've seen nothing to indicate he's out

    First, I think the Bills will need a cold, blustery night, which they probably will have. The Pats are obviously used to northeast weather, but it does tend to be an equalizer to a degree. Then, Buffalo will have to try and shorten the game to limit the Pats' opportunities. While it's clearly untrue that the Pats can't run the ball, I don't think it's a done deal that Maroney can do it on his own--I do think Morris is missed.

    The loss of Lynch does hurt the Bills. Regardless of weather, the Pats will put up a minimum of mid-20's, and likely closer to the season norm of about 40. But the Bills will have to score close to 30 at a minimum. To do that, I think they'll need a TD on defense and special teams, and then hope Losman can produce at least a couple of scores. Bottom line, it's a long shot. My guess would be Pats, 34-13.

    Ditto--more people should take notice how to cope. Plus, I'm convinced God hated the Bills so I just can't.

    Maroney carried the ball 19 times for 103 yards when we played them in week #3. Morris had 12 carries for 46 yards.

    True. I'm a fan of Maroney's. I do think the presence of Morris was helpful to him, though.
