The New England Patriots are coming off back-to-back losses and looking to close out the final two weeks of the season with home games against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and the New York Jets on Dec. 30.

The Patriots lost on the road to the Miami Dolphins on a wild final play and the offense struggled on the road in a Week 15 defeat to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 17-10.

The big news for the Patriots is the loss of wide receiver Josh Gordon, who was suspended indefinitely. New England on Friday promoted defensive end Ufomba Kamalu from the practice squad to the active roster. Kamalu, 26, played in 13 games with the Houston Texans in 2016 and 2017, and most recently was on the Arizona Cardinals before his release on Oct. 30.

The Patriots enter the matchup in good health. Tight end Rob Gronkowski (ankle/back) and wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (illness) were removed from the injury report.

While the Patriots are heavily favored Sunday, the Bills may not be a pushover. After a 2-7 record, Sean McDermott's squad has won three of their last five games, including a 14-13 win over the Detriot Lions in Week 15.

Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen continues to make strides after some growing pains in the opening weeks of the season. Over the last three games, Allen has thrown for over 200 yards each game and has rushed for an average of 84 yards.

Patriots cornerback Jason McCourty praised Allen's arm strength.

"There are times he's falling backwards when there's pressure and he's flicking it up and the ball is going 60 yards as if it is nothing ... There's no receiver that is going to outrun his arm," McCourty said.

Buffalo entered the week with questions about the running game. The Bills listed Chris Ivory as questionable with a shoulder injury, but LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will play.

The Patriots defeated the Bills in Buffalo in Week 8, 25-6.

Betting Line: Patriots -13.5 points
