The Pats prevailed over the Bills in awful conditions last month by going ALL-IN on their ground game. Though the wind isn’t expected to be as much of a factor as it was then, Sean McDermott should beware any dastardly schemes from his opposite.

The Bills have been consistently inconsistent this season, and the hope has always been that they would come good in the playoffs. That time has arrived, and Josh Allen should be perfectly suited to taking on a defense that has struggled to stop the run this season.

But this game really could go either way, so follow our guide on how to watch the Patriots vs Bills online and get an NFL live stream wherever you are in the world right now.

How to watch Patriots vs Bills from outside your country

If you’ve mismatched a holiday or you’re away on business and you want to watch your country’s coverage from abroad, then you’ll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.

A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.
