Monday night in Buffalo will be the biggest game of the year for both the Patriots and Bills.

New England enters leading the AFC East at 8-4, while Buffalo is right behind them at 7-4.

It will be the Bills' first look at rookie Mac Jones, who coach Sean McDermott had a good amount of praise for speaking to reporters on Tuesday.

“Talented young quarterback," he said. "As I mentioned earlier, Josh McDaniels seems like he’s up to his old ways of developing another young quarterback at an elite level. I think Mac is off to a phenomenal start. He’s as good as advertised. There’s a lot of talk out there about him and does a great job executing their offense. It will be a big challenge for us.”

The rookie quarterback is completing 70% of his passes and has seven touchdown passes over his last four games.

As for the Patriots team, McDermott has been impressed.

“They are playing really high level football," he said. "Again, well-coached. They execute well. They are not beating themselves. Play good complementary football. Their offense is, I think Mac Jones is off to a great start, as I said, and they are very physical with what they do.”
