In a winner takes first place in the AFC East clash, there will be several stories to watch, but this battle will more than likely come down to how Belichick defends against Allen and that Bills’ offense that can be very explosive.

Through the team’s six-game winning streak, the Patriots’ defense has not only given up the least points in all the NFL, but they have also been forcing turnovers and have held their last three opponents scoreless in the second half of games.

One could say this streak has involved a bit of luck as the Patriots didn’t have to face offensive playmakers such as Nick Chubb, Cordarrelle Patterson and recently the Tennessee Titans trio of Derrick Henry, A.J. Brown and Julio Jones.  But, with the way players like Matt Judon, Christian Barmore and J.C. Jackson have been playing, you must believe Belichick would’ve found a way to contain those players.

Well, Belichick and his defense will have an opportunity to show the rest of the NFL they are for real against a Bills team with a talented quarterback and offensive playmakers in Diggs and tight end Dawson Knox who will certainly challenge the defense, as they don’t want to allow the game to turn into offensive showdown that would put the pressure on rookie quarterback Mac Jones and the Patriots’ offense to match points with the Bills.

So, who are the New England Patriots defensive players on high alert in this game?

Let’s dissect by looking at how the Bills will try to exploit Belichick’s defense.
