Top 10 ways this Bills-Patriots game is different


10. Back-to-back primetime games.

What's more fun than playing in one primetime game? Playing primetime games two weeks in a row! We're starting to get used to this under-the-lights stuff. And we're staying with the monochromatic uniform theme! Let's hope recent history repeats itself.

9. Back-to-back-to-back wins?

When football Sunday hasn't even started yet and your team already won. #GoBills

You know what they say "Two's a crowd. Three's a party." We're really in the mood for a party.

8. LeSean loves the lights.

The RB averages over 110 yards on Monday Night Football. His Sunday night stats are comparable.  Shady's is all about show-time under the spotlights.

7. It could be another #OneBuffalo kind of night.

The last time the Bills and Sabres won on the same day was...drumroll please...our last game! Before that fun Thursday night, our teams hadn't won together since January 3, 2010. The Sabres take on the St. Louis Blues at home, and we'd like to meet them back in Buffalo with a win for our city.

6. We're a different team than last time.

This Bills team looks and feels much different than the team that lost to the Patriots at home

5. Tyrod.

We said we'd put him on this list every week, and with these stats, nothing's made us think about changing our mind. We're all about our QB.

4. We're healthy.

We knocked on wood, don't worry. Take a look at the injury report – it's the shortest it's been in recent memory. With all the big guns back in the lineup and a banged up Patriots team, we're excited to see what "full potential" means for this team against a very good opponent.

3. Playoff implications.

As we sit patiently in the 6th AFC playoff spot, each week ahead has big implications for our potential postseason run. A win on the road against a division opponent as we head into crunch time would be big for a number of reasons.

2. We're on Monday Night Football.

This week on #MNF. @buffalobills vs @Patriots. — ESPN Monday Night (@ESPNMondayNight) November 19, 2015

Hello there, Monday Night Football. It's been too long…since 2009, in fact. We can't wait to see you again, under the lights, on the national stage, in primetime.

1. It's the Patriots.

Yeah. That's motivation enough.
