Bills head coach Doug Marrone hasn’t been a part of all of Buffalo’s losses at Gillette where the Bills have been winless since the stadium opened in 2001. But he’s well aware of the team’s lack of success up there, going 0-12 in 12 meetings with the Patriots. While Marrone admits it’s reality, he said history can’t affect how they play this time around on Sunday.
“I don’t know if it’s on the top of the minds of the players,” said Marrone. “I hate bringing it up, but it’s the truth. There’s a time that we have to go out there and we have to challenge and be able to play. We haven’t really played well against them. I know the first time we played them it was tough, but it was the opening game of the season. After the last game, we had three turnovers. You can’t do that and beat this team. He was extremely efficient on all sides of the ball. I’m sure they’ll be ready for us. It’s a division game and that’s what we’re expecting.”
Sunday will be the third time in four seasons that the Bills close out their regular season in New England.
