Patriots vs. Bills: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

Kevin Hoffman-US PRESSWIRE

The New England Patriots will attempt to get their second win this season over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

The New England Patriots host the Buffalo Bills for the second time this season, and look to continue their recent success against their AFC East rival.

The Patriots have defeated Bills 11 straight times at home, and own victories in 22 of the last 24 meetings overall. New England has a better record this season, at 5-3 overall and in first place in the East. The Bills, on the other hand, are 3-5 and tied with the New York Jets for last.

New England should be well-rested coming off their bye week. The Patriots throttled the St. Louis Rams 45-7 the week before, playing the game at Wembley Stadium in London. Buffalo is playing its second straight road game, as the Bills lost 21-9 to the Houston Texans in Reliant Stadium last Sunday.

The teams met earlier in the season, as the Patriots throttled the Bills 52-28 in Week 3. The offense will look to take advantage of Stevan Ridley this week, as Buffalo allows an NFL worst 5.7 yards per carry. Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez both had strong performances the last time these two teams met, with both tight ends collecting over 100 yards receiving and at least one touchdown.

Defensive end Mark Anderson and cornerback Aaron Williams are two Buffalo starters that are already ruled out for Sunday's game. Shawne Merriman, Stevie Johnson and Chris Kelsay are also listed as questionable for the Bills. The Patriots have a slew of people listed on their injury report, with Hernandez, Gronk, Wes Welker, Logan Mankins and Brandon Lloyd, among others, all listed as questionable. Brandon Bolden, Trevor Scott and Tracy White have been ruled out.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, November 11; 1 p.m. ET

Location: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, Mass.

TV: CBS

Odds: New England -9½
