Patriots vs Bills schedule: odds, spread, preview, prediction, Jimmy Garoppolo to start?

Garoppolo injured his right shoulder in week two against the Dolphins, and Brissett injured his thumb during the second half of last week's game against the Texans.
On a conference call with wide receiver/emergency QB Julian Edelman on Wednesday, "Walt Patulski from the Buffalo News" jumped in, asking if the Kent State signal-caller would be behind center Sunday in Foxborough.
The Patriots host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon, and head coach Bill Belichick continues to prove that he can win with just about any starting quarterback.
"We'll see on Sunday", Garoppolo answered when asked if he was capable of making all the throws he could make before the injury.
"I'm going to do whatever the coaches ask me to do", Edelman said.
When asked on Monday on Westwood One Radio about the job Belichick has done through the first three games, Brady did not hesitate.
"I'd say [it's] an above-average run game", Ryan said.
Oh well, can't blame the guy for trying.
Even with their respective injuries, both Garoppolo and Brissett are likely aching to play this Sunday.
Rex Ryan, coming off a rousing first win over Arizona last weekend, was in a playful mood during his weekly press conference Wednesday at One Bills Drive. "So you know, not the funnest thing but it is what it is I guess".
[0:42] - There are no really good quotes here, just Belichick learning how to use a Microsoft Surface or whatever the National Football League sidelines are endorsed by.
Garoppolo said before the workout that this is the first time he's dealt with an AC joint sprain in his shoulder, but added that he isn't concerned with the prospect of potentially having to play through an injury. Unfortunately the only time that this may be known may be on game day itself.
"A lot of pressure on the back end to learn those spots and quite honestly, we were going to have Colt Anderson back up a bunch of things, but then he couldn't go later in the week".
Ryan acknowledged he believes he knows who will start, but wouldn't share who. It might. But for now, Belichick isn't going anywhere, and it is quite incredible no one has found a way to actually dethrone him.
Ryan insisted that even with variables to account for, he isn't anxious about over preparing for one guy or coming in with the wrong game plan.
"My admiration is really for Belichick more than anything because as a coach that's the guy. he'll go down probably as the best in the history of the game", Ryan said. "That was something I thought would give us a better opportunity to free someone up, maybe change the count up a little bit". Like the two wins against their coach's former team last season.
