As strange as it may seem, the Bills, having already clinched the AFC East for the first time since 1995, will face the Patriots, who have already been eliminated from playoff contention, on “Monday Night Football” in Week 16.
Welcome to the topsy-turvy year that has been 2020.
The Bills (11-3) have a chance to claim the No. 2 seed in the AFC with a win and a Steelers loss to the Colts in Week 17. They’ve been led by third-year QB Josh Allen, who has looked like a darkhorse MVP candidate at times. Allen his improved his completion percentage significantly from 58.8 percent in 2019 to 68.7 percent in 2020. That bump in accuracy has made a huge difference for Allen, as he’s thrown for a career-best 30 touchdowns to just nine interceptions.
The Patriots (6-8), in their first year without Tom Brady since 1999, haven’t looked like the Patriots fans have been used to seeing over the last decade. They were eliminated from playoff contention after a 22-12 loss to the Dolphins last week, and a loss to the Bills would ensure their first losing season since Brady’s rookie season in 2000.
