The New England Patriots likely fought an uphill battle when they headed to Orchard Park on Saturday to play the Buffalo Bills.

It is possible that the absence of starting left midfielder Isaiah Wynn will make things more difficult. According to the official Patriots Twitter account, Wynn was dropped from the Wildcard Weekend match against the Bills.

An ankle injury was the one that kept Wynn out of action. Unless the Patriots resolve the sadness, he will play the last game of the season.


Who started to replace Wynn?

Justin Herron will likely start in Wynn’s place. The 26-year-old is in his second season in the NFL having started six games in 2020 and he has started four games this season.

Because of his experience and innate suitability to tackle, he is more likely to be named in the situation than attacking second-year teammate Mike Onwenu. There’s a chance Yodny Cajuste or even Yasir Durant could show up on the field if Herron struggles.

If that happens, it will be a bad sign for the Patriots as they try to take the rubber game against the Bills.


The Patriots Key to Beating the Bills

While strong winds set the pace for the first meeting between the Patriots and Bills in Week 13, there are some principles from that game that New England must repeat if they hope to beat Buffalo and move forward.

In the Week 16 rematch, the Bills fixed the score with a 33-21 win over Foxborough.

In the first meeting, the game was over and instead of trying to fight back, New England chose to play aggressively attacking almost every match. Rookie defender Mac Jones threw the ball just three times to help New England win 14-10.

It wouldn’t be the Patriots beating the Bills on Saturday with Jones pitching just three times. However, the Patriots still have to rely heavily on their running game. Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson may need to have at least 15 rush attempts each time for the Patriots to set things up on the ground.

They have to win the previous battle to help take some of the pressure off Jones. If they can move the ball on the ground, the Bills will be forced to move an extra defender into the box to slow the game. When and if New England can set that up, Jones will need to make a few throws leading to tee-offs or scoring to balance his team’s attack.

If he can do that, he’ll put some pressure on Josh Allen and the Bills’ offense. At that point, the New England defense – especially the full-backs – would have to stop Allen and keep him out of the box.

Buffalo’s attack will be extremely intimidating when Allen has time or creates it with his mobility. The Patriots had to pressure him into making mistakes. According to Pro Football Focus, Allen generates 3.4% of games worthy of revenue per game.

Patriots need to apply the pressure increase that the percentage has increased.
