BUSCAGLIA: 5 Things To Watch In Bills - Patriots - WGR 550
Joe Buscaglia's five most important things to watch today.

Inside The Bills | Bills, Pats best at ball security
"Buffalo and New England are tied for the league lead in fewest fumbles lost. Both clubs have lost just 5 through the first 15 games. A handful of other clubs have also lost just five fumbles this season. New Orleans, Green Bay, Carolina, San Francisco and Detroit all are tied for the top spot with Buffalo and New England for fewest fumbles lost."

Inside The Bills | Hernandez missed 1st meeting
"When he came back they started hitting full stride," Gailey told "He is a big part of what they do. They’ve got the three-headed monster so to speak right now, but those other guys will make plays if you don’t watch out for them too."

Inside The Bills | It’s not about limiting Welker’s catches
"You’d like to say just cover him tighter, but you do that and it opens up something else," Gailey told "What you want to do is limit his number of yards. I’m not as worried about the number of catches as I am the yards. If you can tackle him when he catches it in that four-yard range then we’re okay. It’s the yards after the catch that really burn you with Wes Welker."

Inside The Bills | Where Fitz ranks best
"Admittedly Fitz had a rough stretch during Buffalo’s seven-game losing streak and is tied for the league lead in interceptions with 19, but here are some other areas where Buffalo’s signal caller is among the top 10 QBs in the game."

"The calendar today flipped to 2012, a new year has begun, and it seems appropriate because it feels like Buffalo's 34-31 victory over New England on Sept. 25 couldn't have possibly happened this year."
