The New England Patriots named eight practice players of the week for the team’s 37-16 win over the Buffalo Bills. There was a heavy emphasis on tight ends and cornerbacks this week as New England focused on the Bills multiple tight end sets and coverages.

The Bills use Charles Clay and Nick O’Leary at tight end and Mike Tolbert and Patrick DiMarco at fullback so I wouldn’t be surprised if Dwayne Allen and Will Tye replicated their snaps in practice.

Brian Hoyer was likely asked to play like Tyrod Taylor in practice, while Bernard Reedy was probably Brandon Tate on special teams. Johnson Bademosi, Jomal Wiltz, and Ryan Lewis stepped up as the Bills secondary.
