The Patriots look to snap a two-game losing streak when they head to Buffalo on Sunday, and experts think they can pull out a road win.

The New England Patriots face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and, in a role reversal, the Bills come in with a better record at 2-1. The Patriots have lost two games in a row and are looking to get back on track. Despite Buffalo's superiority in the standings, most experts think the Patriots will get the victory this weekend.

Joel Thorman, SB Nation's NFL editor, thinks the Pats will come out with a narrow win on Sunday:

The Patriots are under .500 for the first time in nine years and they're facing a Buffalo team that upset them last year. Could it happen again? Not without C.J. Spiller, who is unlikely to play this week. Fred Jackson could return -- he pegs his chances at 70-75 percent -- but he won't be 100 percent. If those guys were healthy, I'd roll with Buffalo. But they're not, so the Patriots get back to .500 this week. The pick: 28-27, Patriots

ESPN's experts are unanimous in their selection of New England, while the CBS is split on whether the Patriots will cover the 4½ point spread. Yahoo's guys go two for three in favor of the Pats.

With the Patriots in unchartered territory record-wise, it's a guarantee that they will be ready to go when they take on the Bills Sunday. The game is scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. ET at Ralph Wilson Stadium. It will be televised on CBS.
