Week 8 marks about the half-way point in the NFL season, and the Patriots are on the road Monday night to take on the 2-5 Buffalo Bills.

Tom Brady has an all-time record of 28-3 against the Bills and he hopes to stretch that to 29 wins Monday in Buffalo. The Patriots sit in first place in the AFC East with a record of 5-2, the complete oppopsite of the Bills.

Josh Gordon reportedly is expected to be benched for the first quarter as Bill Belichick will be disciplining the wide receiver for tardiness. 

Follow along all night for live updates.
