Patriots Preview: Buffalo Bills Week 4
We caught up with ABC 6 Sports Director, Nick Coit, to get a preview of the Patriots Week 4 matchup with the Buffalo Bills.
Both teams are undefeated, although the Bills haven't exactly played the elite teams in the NFL. Neither have the Patriots, Nick pointed out.
The bright spot of the Bills team is their solid defense so far this season. While they haven't yet faced an offense as lethal as the Patriots, the Bills defense is by no means a pushover. Nick thinks they are going to challenge the Patriots.
On the other side of the ball, Bill's quarterback Josh Allen is exciting the Buffalo fanbase. The guy is quick on his feet and isn't afraid to run the ball if there are no open receivers. "You have to keep an eye on a guy like that" said Coit. He has the ability to gain a boatload of yards with his feet."
The Patriots are hurting a bit upfront in the offensive tackle slot. Isaiah Wynn is out with a toe injury. In his absence is Marshall Newhouse, who also missed practice due to a bug that he's been fighting for the past week. Tom Brady, however, was taken off of the injury report Thursday and was able to practice fully. James White will also be returning after he and his wife welcomed a baby into their family this week.
One player that has impressed Nick Coit has been wide receiver, Josh Gordon. He has shown his skill set and ability to be a tough player.
Nick says that the Patriots have to account for Bill's running back Frank Gore, who is still somehow performing at a high level after all of these years. Must be a TB12 client.
Nick Coit predicts the Patriots will leave Buffalo with a 31 to 17 win.
