Offensively, I'm expecting some big plays by Gronk. Hopefully, he doesn't have points or yards taken back for a ridiculous offensive pass interference call. As of now the Patriots are in the lead with 8 offensive pass interference calls. Next closest are Atlanta and Washington with only 4 (both have played one more game than the Patriots).
Playing the Bills at home, the Patriots should expect to maybe have a call or two go their way. At the very least, they hopefully don't have to play 11 on 16 like they did last week. While looking up penalty statistics, I ran into a few gems regarding the Bills.
Penalty # League Average
Offensive Holding 20 14.09
Defensive Pass Int. 8 4.78
Unnecessary Roughness 6 4.47
Delay of Game 4 2.88
Personal Foul 4 .25
Unsportsmanlike Conduct 4 1.5
Facemask (15 yd.) 3 1.72
Chop Block 2 .38
Taunting 2 .47
I assume the Patriots are ready for the idiotic plays and cheap shots a typical Rex Ryan team will be guilty of. Hopefully, no one retaliates or gets injured because of it.
Defensively I'm expecting the Patriots to come away with at least 2 touchdowns to go along with Chandler Jones' 2 sacks. Silly Rex will probably take chances because the secondary had some issues last week, as usual he'll forget that the Patriots don't typically make the same errors twice in a season, let alone twice in a row.
Special teams will once again be dominated by the Patriots. Gostkowski will once again be perfect and Ryan Allen will pin his only punt of the evening inside the 10.
