Patriots vs. Bills: 6 Bold Predictions

6. Scott Chandler will score 2 touchdowns

Back in Week 2, it was clear that the Patriots wanted to leverage whatever ill feelings Chandler has toward his former team, as Tom Brady targeted him a bunch and even forced throws to Chandler at times. As it turned out, Chandler had more receptions in that game (3) than he has recorded in any other game this season.

However, Chandler didn’t do much with those looks, gaining just 23 yards. That won’t be the case this time around.

Look for Chandler to be the focal point of the Patriots’ red zone offense in this game. Without Julian Edelman at Brady’s disposal for underneath and crossing routes, the Pats will emphasize the two-tight end package, and Chandler will further benefit from all the attention the Bills will be forced to pay toward Rob Gronkowski.

Chandler won’t accumulate a ton of receiving yards (leave that to the player in the next slide), but he will haul in a season-high four catches, two of which will be caught in the end zone.
