Showdown In Buffalo

Tom Brady
Brady has thrown seven INTs in the last four games.
All eyes will be on Drew Bledsoe when the Bills host the Patriots on Sunday (in progress). While it will be a big game for Bledsoe and the streaking Bills, it's a huge game for the Patriots, who are reeling after losing four straight, writes Len Pasquarelli. For Bledsoe, this is a game he clearly wants to win against his former team, writes Sal Paolantonio. To do that, he'll have to get the best of his matchup with former coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots defense. For the Patriots, the key is stopping the run, according to Sean Salisbury.
