Something is about to happen in Western New York that hasn’t occurred in nearly a decade. When the Buffalo Bills (2-5) welcome the New England Patriots (5-2) to New Era Field Oct. 29 for a Monday Night Football game Youth Kelvin Benjamin Jersey , it will mark the 43rd time in franchise history that Buffalo has played in a Monday night contest. The Bills are 17-25 in their previous 42 Monday night appearances, but have never faced New England at home in that spotlight. Of their last four Monday night appearances, three have come against the Patriots. Buffalo is still searching for its first win vs. New England in four Monday night showdowns. Buffalo fell at New England 20-13 in 2015. LeSean McCoy’s 27-yard touchdown run pulled the Bills even at 10 early in the third quarter, but James White scored on a six-yard run and Stephen Gostkowski booted a pair of 35-yard field goals as the Patriots improved to 10-0 on the year. The Bills also lost in the season opener of 2009 in Foxboro, 25-24, in a game that featured Tom Brady returning from a 2008 knee injury and Terrell Owens’s debut in a Bills uniform. The two teams also met on Monday night in 1995, with New England prevailing 27-14 on the strength of 127 yards and one rushing touchdown from Curtis Martin. The Bills have dropped their last six games on a Monday night, and haven’t won since a 23-18 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 4, 1999. Gabe Northern scooped up a fumble and returned it 59 yards for a touchdown in the first half, and Doug Flutie found Eric Moulds for a fourth-quarter touchdown to lift Buffalo to victory. The last time the Bills won a home Monday Night Football game? Sept. 26, 1994, when Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas guided Buffalo to a 27-20 win over John Elway and the Denver Broncos.

They ran the ball on 16 of those plays and Leonard Fournette capped both drives with touchdown runs that tied the score at 14-14.Jacksonville got the ball back with a chance to take the lead and moved the ball to midfield when they asked Blake Bortles to throw the ball. That didn’t go well for them as Bills linebacker Matt Milano picked off the pass.Bortles was 5-of-8 for 31 yards on the half, which is less yards than Fournette, Chris Ivory and wide receiver Dede Westbrook have run for individually. That interception may lead to even more work on the ground over the next 30 minutes and that would probably work well given the 173 yards they’ve already picked up on Sunday.The interception didn’t hurt the Jags on the scoreboard as the Bills couldn’t score. They hurt themselves with a penalty to start the drive and flags on offense have been an issue all day for Buffalo. They were bailed out by another penalty later in the drive when Jalen Ramsey was flagged for illegal contact on a pass he intercepted.It was Ramsey’s second penalty of the day as he faces Allen for the first time since calling him trash and Ramsey could be seen telling the Bills bench “you trash” after the penalty was called on him with three seconds to go in the half.
