ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White's only regret regarding Tom Brady leaving New England is that he never got the chance to beat the quarterback over the previous three seasons.
Otherwise, White was happy to bid farewell to Brady upon leaving the AFC East to sign with Tampa Bay this past offseason. Buffalo, which had a 3-32 record against Brady during his 19 seasons in New England, now braces to host a Patriots offense led by Cam Newton, who is off to an inconsistent start.
The Bills lead the AFC East with a 5-2 record. The Patriots are 2-4 and have lost three straight — their worst skid since 2002.
Cornerback Stephon Gilmore will miss his first regular-season game in three seasons when New England visits.
Gilmore, who has been dealing with a knee injury, was downgraded to out, along with rookie safety Kyle Dugger (ankle) and offensive lineman Justin Herron (ankle).
They join receivers Julian Edelman and N’Keal Harry, who were previously ruled out.
