The New England Patriots return home for a Monday Night Football matchup against Rex Ryan and the Buffalo Bills. The game will be televised by ESPN and will have their normal crew of Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden on the call. The game will also be carried on the radio by the Patriots flagship station of 98.5 the Sportshub with Bob Socci and Scott Zolak on the call. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 p.m.

The Patriots (9-0) beat the New York Giants 27-26 on a last second 54-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski. Tom Brady threw for 193 yards in the fourth quarter as the Pats came back from a ten-point deficit. The big play of the drive was the 4th and 10 pass from the 20-yard line to Danny Amendola that got the team moving.

The Bills (5-4) beat the New York Jets 22-17 on Thursday Night Football. The Bills have won two divisional games in a row, having beaten Miami before that and are looking for a trifecta. Buffalo is in great position for a playoff spot in 2015 and needs to continue to play well to get to the post season, something the Bills haven’t seen in 15 years.

We here at PatsFans.com are continuing our  “Razor’s Edge”  column in 2015 to give a quick break down on some of the key matchups of the game and what you can look for in how the game plays out.

Series History:
The Patriots and Bills have met 111 times with the Patriots holding a 68-42-1 overall edge in the series. In recent years the Patriots have dominated Buffalo with Tom Brady holding a 24-3 edge overall against the Bills. The last meeting was won by the Patriots back in September during Week 2. The Patriots had a 37-13 lead after three quarters  before the Bills had a 4th quarter comeback that fell short 40-32.

Here is a look at some of the key matchups and who holds the Razor’s Edge.
