Game facts: Patriots at Bills

Long time coming: Buffalo is looking for its first season sweep of New England since 1999. 

Tough road ahead: Starting this week against the Patriots, the Bills will play three straight games against 2015 playoff teams.

X factor: LeSean McCoy has tallied 100+ scrimmage yards in three of his four career games vs. the Patriots. His status for Sunday's game is doubtful (hamstring). 

Getting pressure: The Bills have 21 sacks this season (2nd in NFL). Buffalo had 21 sacks all of last season (31st). 

Sudden star: LB Lorenzo Alexander has 9.0 sacks this season (most in NFL). Alexander had 9.0 career sacks in his first 9 NFL seasons (2007-2015).
