Over his ten seasons at Buffalo, Chris Kelsay's introduction to the Bills' so-called and very unrecognitive divisional rivalry with the New England Patriots differed from many of his players.

He began his career with a win.

Kelsay will never forget the words of grace he received shortly after the Bills' 2003 season opener.

Don't get yourself wrong, Kelsay said on a laugh this week as Buffalo prepares to host the Patriots (10-7).

There have been no genuiner words ever spoken.

The Patriots failed to deliver a touchdown as they defeated the Bills 31-0 in the season finale, which resulted in their second of the six Super Bowl titles spanning the 2001 to the year 2018.

Buffalo's streak-ending 34-31 victory over New England was always optimistic about your game plan and your preparation, but during that timeframe, they certainly got our number more than we expected.

As difficult as it was to start the game, Kelsay is encouraged to see signs of the tables being closed. The Bills have won three of four and eliminated the Patriots' long-standing influence on the AFC East by winning division titles in each of the past two seasons.

Kelsay acknowledged initially having pangs of jealousy in watching the Bills enjoy success in retirement.

Over the course of that stretch, Belichick won 35 of 40 meetings, with Brady going 32-3 (now 33-3) after he led Tampa Bay past Buffalo last month to set the NFL record for most victories against one opponent.

Buffalo beat the season last year for the first time since 1999, resulting in a poor week at home.

After the then-Boston Patriots beat Buffalo 26-8 in the former American Football League divisional playoff in 1963, the teams will compete for only the second time in the playoffs.

Sean McDermott, the Bills' coach, has dismissed any recent success the Bills have had as a result of the 14-10 loss in which the Patriots attempted three passes while finishing with 222 yards rushing to counter the elements.

McDermott said: This is a good football team, but I dont think you have to look further than knowing that they beat us here a couple of weeks ago.

Former Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo criticized the past for not redefining the team's progress. The Bills are now led by fourth-year starter Josh Allen, while the Patriots are in transition under rookie Mac Jones.

Honestly, I dont really get into comparing teams, Mayo said. Every team has its own unique structure and own unique identity.

Mayo is surprisingly quiet given that he fought back against Buffalo throughout his eight seasons in New England from 2008 to 15.

The difference is that Mayo didnt have to endure the sometimes frustrating frustrations the Bills experienced in almost always coming up short.

New England beat Buffalo 56-10 in their season opener in 2007 when Brady delivered four touchdown passes to Randy Moss.

After the Bills rallied from a 21-0 deficit to beat New England, they squandered a 21-0 lead in a season-ending loss.

Kyle Williams believes that losses are different from those that led to victory.

I remember more of my licks and butt-kickings I took, said the former defensive tackle of the Bills.

Williams had the best effort and the time to work to beat New England.

As he is during Buffalo's recent run, Williams believes this team has not relieved any ghosts of the Bills' past, not the Bill at least.

Im extremely proud of them and very happy, but I dont know that it really exorcises any deep-seeded Patriots demons I have, said Williams, who won three games over New England from 2005 to 2018. I had my opportunities. It didnt work out.

Brian Moorman, a lawyer at the Punter, has taken a different approach, claiming that he has lived vicariously through the Bills.

Im certainly satisfied as all Bills fans across the country, as this team and this team have broken this curse, said Moorman, who had two starts in Buffalo from 2001 to 2012.

Were just not competitive, were the team to beat, Moorman said, not apologizing for using the words us and we when referring to the Bills. Everybodys kind of looking up to us, and I dont think you can take it away from them. They should be proud of that and, obviously, be confident going into this match.
