MATCHUP OF THE WEEK
No team has sacked or intercepted the Patriots quarterback more in his career than the Bills--yet no team has allowed more passing yards or TDs to him. Who will come out on top in Week 7?
The Super Bowl XXXVI champion Pats got Buffaloed in the 2003 opener, but they've since won six straight against their AFC East rivals, including a 19--17 squeaker in Week 1. In those six games Brady has averaged 237.6 passing yards and a little more than two TDs. In '02 Brady threw for 328 yards and three TDs against the Bears, then under current Bills coach Dick Jauron.
Before a Week 5 pasting in Chicago, Buffalo's defense had been fairly respectable, especially given how much time the unit spent on the field. The Bills had held opponents to an average of 16.3 points and a little more than one TD pass (with one interception) per game. In his last two meetings with Brady, Fletcher-Baker has 24 tackles, an interception and a fumble return for a touchdown.
