They’ve won three straight and covered in two of those games as Wes Welker has racked up six touchdowns and Tom Brady 2,163 passing yards. New England sits one game ahead of Buffalo in the AFC East standings and if they don’t want the Bills to catch them this Sunday, the Pats need a big effort on Sunday in Pittsburgh.
