Instead of relying on his arm, as it has most of the season, the Buffalo offense ran it 38 times. Devin Singletary and Zack Moss handled 14 carries apiece. Each eclipsed 80 yards on the ground, with Moss scoring twice. Allen handled the other 10 rushing attempts and scored as well.

Newton threw for 20 more yards than Allen in that game and ran for his own TD (amid 54 yards). Damien Harris racked up 102 yards and a TD in that game as well. Jakobi Meyers led Patriots pass-catchers with 6-58 receiving on 10 targets, 40% of Newton’s attempts.

Harris might be ready to return from the ankle sprain that cost him last week, but we likely won’t know until inactives come out around 7 p.m. ET.

Sony Michel has re-entered the backfield picture since the 1st Buffalo meeting, claiming 10, 7 and 10 carries the past 3 weeks. So an active Harris would face an unclear work share.
