Check out our Bills Daily Injury Page throughout the week for the latest updates on the injured players.

KEY MATCHUPS

LT Cordy Glenn vs. DE Chandler Jones:
Glenn is back and healthy and having a fantastic rookie season for the Bills. Jones is a very good pass rusher who leads his team with six sacks.

DE Mario Williams vs. RT Sebastian Vollmer:
A now supposedly healthy Williams needs a huge game getting to Tom Brady to make him get rid of the ball quicker than he wants to. Vollmer is a solid four year veteran.

RB C.J. Spiller vs. LB Jerod Mayo:
Spiller needs to become the primary ball carrier now. Mayo is by far and away the number one tackler for New England.

LB Kelvin Sheppard vs. RB Stevan Ridley:
Sheppard is the man in the middle that needs to keep Ridley in check. Everyone keys on Brady but Ridley can kill the Bills up the middle as he is on pace for almost 1,500 yards rushing.

KEYS TO THE GAME

1. Play With Confidence: Act like they can hang with the Pats. They have never won in that stadium but they can't think of that. They have to believe they can win even though very few people believe they can.
2. Finish The Game Strong: This team is struggling mightily in the fourth quarter. When things get rough in the game, and they definitely will, they can't just cave. They need to fight their way out of it.
3. Run Spiller: Fans and the media have ripped Chan Gailey for not getting the ball to Spiller enough. He needs to carry the ball close to 20 times and get some catches in the passing game as well.

BILLS DAILY PREDICTION

The Bills have never won in Gillette Stadium and Bill Belichick has two weeks to prepare as the Patriots are coming off the bye. That is not a combination to pull off the major upset:
Patriots 34, Bills 20

Season Prediction Record: (5-3)
Season Record Against The Spread: (4-4)
