The New England Patriots have cruised through their schedule so far, winning the first three games of the season with a combined score of 106-17 — their +89 scoring differential is clearly the best in the entire league. Today, however, the team will arguably face its toughest test of the young season when it will travel to Upstate New York to take on the 3-0 Buffalo Bills in a battle for the AFC East lead.
With all that in mind, let’s find out how to actually follow today’s game:

The two teams’ fan bases feel quite good about their teams heading into today’s game as our latest FanPulse survey — please click here if you also want to take part in the future — shows: while 93% of New England’s followers are confident in the direction of the franchise, 84% of Buffalo’s polled fan base feels the same way about its team. This makes for one of the most optimistic matchups in the NFL this week.
Fans are quite confident in the Patriots at this point in the year but the recent developments — from James Develin being placed on injured reserve to the Antonio Brown saga — have altered the outlook for some. As a result, the Patriots’ fan base fell down from the top position it held last week with 98% and is now “only” the sixth most confident in the NFL. The top spot, meanwhile, is shared by the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.
Bills fans, on the other hand, are not quite that convinced about their team. The club had to come from behind to win in two of its first three games, after all, and will go up against arguably the best team in all of football today.
