The 1-5 Patriots are spiraling after dropping another frustrating loss to the Raiders last week — and the road isn’t getting any easier.

New England will look to reverse its fortune Sunday afternoon when it hosts Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills at Gillette Stadium. Kick-off is set for 1 p.m.

The Patriots are currently in the midst of a three-game losing streak that has seen them get outscored 93-20. To make matters worse, already-depleted New England has ruled out Josh Uche and Keion White — with another 16 players tabbed as questionable on the final injury report. 

Here is Chad Finn’s Unconventional Preview of Patriots-Bills. 

Conor Roche also has a breakdown on seven Bills to watch for Sunday — headlined by the usual suspects like Allen and Stefon Diggs, who is averaging 6.1 receptions and 89.9 receiving yards per game against New England since landing in Buffalo.

Follow along here for live updates from Sunday’s showdown in Foxborough, and check back once the game wraps for some early observations.


11:50: Another puzzling set of roster moves with Cunningham being inactive. Really didn’t see much of him last week in Vegas, and now he’s on the outside looking in at today’s game. Expected a bit more, considering he was signed to the active roster.

11:40: Patriots inactives today:

– T Calvin Anderson – WR JuJu Smith-Schuster – WR Kayshon Boutte – LB Josh Uche – DE Keion White – QB Malik Cunningham – QB Will Grier (emergency QB)

Zappe is once again New England’s QB.

11:30: Greetings from Gillette!
