Quick Take: Bills (0-2) at Patriots (2-0)

Last meeting
Tom Brady passed for 195 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Patriots defeated the Bills, 28-6, last October.

The Patriots have dominated this series of late, winning 12 of the last 13.

Last week
The Bills, obviously reeling from the injury to tight end Kevin Everett, lost at Pittsburgh, 26-3. The Patriots had their own distractions last week, one of them, however, was not the Chargers, who they dispensed of rather easily, 38-14.

At stake
The Bills desperately need a victory and it won't be easy against the Patriots, who appear to be playing their best football in years. But could the Patriots overlook the defensive-minded Bills after Sunday night's huge victory?

Key matchup
The Bills desperately need wide receiver Lee Evans to get involved in the offense, and quarterback J.P. Losman has been begging his coaches to throw deep. But that won't be easy against New England corners Asante Samuel and Ellis Hobbs. Still, Evans has averaged more than 18 yards per catch in his career against the Patriots.

Key injuries
BUFFALO: WR Josh Reed (thigh). NEW ENGLAND: G Stephen Neal (shoulder), DE Mike Wright (knee).

Did you know?
Tom Brady is 6-0 at home against the Bills and has a 97.7 passer rating in those games.
