The Bills will rematch the Patriots in the first round of the NFL’s wild-card games on Saturday night. 

During the teams’ last meeting in Gillette Stadium, the Bills recorded a 33-21 win that helped push them to the top of the AFC East. Buffalo went on to win the next two games against the Falcons and the Jets to clinch the division as the No. 3 playoff seed for the second consecutive year. 

On the other hand, back-to-back losses against the Colts and the Bills with the Chargers’ 35-32 loss to the Raiders pushed New England down to the No. 6 playoff seed. The Patriots finished 10-7 at second in the AFC East. Star running back Damien Harris, who leads New England with 929 total rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns, is currently listed as questionable for the wild-card matchup with a hamstring injury. Wide reciever Jakobi Meyers, who leads the team with 83 catches for 866 yards, is also questionable with a thigh injury. Aside from Harris and Meyers, New England has also listed a couple of key defensive players as questionable including linebacker Dont’a Hightower and defensive end Lawrence Guy.

The rematch will take place in Buffalo, in which there will be harsh weather conditions once again. A winter storm watch and a wind chill advisory were issued through Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service, with a temperature of 7 degrees or minus 3 with windchill. 

The Patriots defeated the Bills 14-10 in Buffalo’s extreme wind and cold in Week 13. Although Mac Jones completed two of three passes for 19 yards, the Patriots’ offense was dominant on the ground. Harris rushed on 10 carries for 111 yards with a touchdown. Josh Allen completed 15 of 30 passes for 130 yards with a touchdown but couldn’t get momentum to take away the Patriots’ lead.
