Turnovers? Sacks?  Passing Yards? Rushing Yards? Other?

I have to believe it is going to be INT's. The only times we have beat Brady are when we can force him to throw INT"s.

No, you cannot say Touchdowns.

Sudfeld is turning out to be a suitable replacement for the Bubble Gum Bandit (Hernandez). That being said, our ability to cover TE's with Alonso or Bradham. Last year we were horrible (Barnett had some tired legs)...this year, I'm hoping Pettine changes it up with either MLB or Safeties covering the TE's. So, I would say our MLB pass coverage is the key. Brady will be looking for quick dump off passes or slants to TE's. If we stop that (to some degree), we win.

We'll need them to have about 3-7 turnovers, and us to have zero.

Brady temper tantrums. The more fits he pitches, the better the chances we win. If he's flipping out and crying, that means he's getting beat.

I think that first and foremost, "stop" the NE run so 150 rushing yards or less. Then, INTs. It is more about the defense on Sunday than the offense. We will not win a scoring match with Brady.

For the Bills to win multiple, phases of the game will need to favor them. In addition to those above, they must eliminate penalties. We were a penalty machine this preseason and that has to stop..

With the HOF career Brady is enjoying -albeit at our expense-, winning the turnover battle is just about the ONLY way they lose in the regular season. You just can't outscore them.

Meh - I hear you on penalties that kill drives but I wouldn't mind a defensive penalty here or there if it results in scaring Brady that are indeed not afraid to put him on the ground.

Sacks. If Bills have 5 sacks or more, we will win.
3-4 sacks will mean a close game.
< 3 sacks = big loss.

The obvious reason I say this is that sacks = pressure. Brady has to be pressured else he will eat you alive.

It's all on the defense this game.

They need to be able to stop the Pats rushing attack without committing extra defender in the box which will allow them to drop an extra defender back in coverage to help create the requisite turnovers required to pull off the upset.
