The Bills aren’t a team that will really test you down the field. There are quick passes. Slants to the receivers. But it’s really built around those two tailbacks and you figure they’ll get the ball in Spiller’s hands early in the game to try to get him going. If you’re the Patriots, you know that is coming because the Bills made an error last week with one of their most explosive offensive players. He’s becoming a player where you have to account for him at all times, even when he doesn’t have the ball. He reminds me of LeSean McCoy in Philadelphia, or like a Marshall Faulk in St. Louis when he played. The Patriots might use a defensive end to chip him, which is a staple of what Bill Belichick often wants to do.
