The Patriots will travel to Buffalo for a tough divisional matchup against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
The Patriots will have to make some improvements from last week’s win if they want to take down the Rex Ryan led Buffalo Bills.
Here are the three key players for New England.
1. TE Rob Gronkowski
If the Bills can’t cover him and most can’t, New England should be fine on offense. Gronk and Edelman will need to continue their great play to help Brady out.
2. DT Malcom Brown
The Patriots were horrible last Thursday against the run. It’s been a problem the past two seasons, but it can’t be one on Sunday. The Bills love to run the ball with their running backs and Quarterback, so New England has to stop the ground attack or they have little chance to win. Brown needs a big game on Sunday and set the pace for the run defense.
3. LT Nate Solder
He really needs to have a better game on Sunday than the one he had Thursday. Brady has to be protected and it’s up to the veterans of the line like Solder and Vollmer to set the tone and keep Buffalo off of Tom Brady.
