The Buffalo Bills hope to become the first team to defeat the New England Patriots in the 2015 season, and fans can watch live online as an injury-depleted Patriots team tries to hold off the challenge from the Bills and their outspoken coach, Rex Ryan, who has spent much of the week leading up the Monday Night Football game, expressing his frustration not just with the Patriots themselves, but with the New England media as well.
“I want what they have. They’ve won some rings or whatever. I ain’t kissing them, but I respect them,” Ryan said last week, when asked to explain his seeming “obsession” with the Patriots.
“I admire the fact that they’ve been that successful through the years. But that’s what I’m chasing. I want to win, man. I mean that’s as simple as that and to do it — if you really want to be the very best then you gotta go ahead and beat this team.”
As the coach of the New York Jets from 2009 to 2014, and of Buffalo this season, Ryan has won four and lost 10 against the Bill Belichick-coached Patriots, but with the possible exception of the Jets shocking divisional-round elimination of the Patriots in the 2010-2011 playoffs, no win would be bigger in Ryan’s career than if his Bills are able to end the Patriots nine-game winning streak to start the 2015 season.

To find out how to watch the Week 11 NFL Monday Night Football game, the Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots, live online, see the streaming info at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time — 5:30 p.m. Pacific — at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Monday, November 23.
Buffalo comes into the game in second place behind the AFC East-leading Patriots, at 5-4. But if anything can give Ryan, the Bills, and their fans hope of pulling off what would be perhaps the biggest upset of the 2015 NFL season so far, it’s the rash of injuries to the Patriots offense. In the past two games, the defending Super Bowl champs have lost their top running back, Dion Lewis, for the season, and leading wide receiver, Julian Edelman, at least until the start of the playoffs.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski will need to pick up the slack, and Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady will likely rely on Gronkowski, as well as Number Two wide receiver Danny Amendola to shoulder the offensive load.
The Bills will have their work cut out for them in Foxborough where the Patriots have won 23 of their last 24 games — and 50 of their last 54 at home. New England has not lost a Monday Night Football game at Gillette Stadium since 2005.
