It looks like the two parties are not yet on the same page."Three weeks after the start of free agency Youth Stephen Gostkowski Jerseys , the New England Patriots are still left with one major hole to fill: the reigning world champions do not have a placekicker under contract at the moment. Stephen Gostkowski, who held the role for the last 13 seasons and earned three Super Bowl rings as well as four Pro Bowl selections in the process, remains unsigned despite the Patriots and the kicker’s camp reportedly working towards a new contract.There appears to be one major roadblock between the two sides, however: as NFL Network’s Mike Giardi reported earlier today, money appears to be an issue when it comes to New England’s efforts to bring the 35-year-old back into the fold. How much the two sides are apart is not known as things stand right now, but it would not be a surprise to see the Patriots value Gostkowski below the league’s top-paid kickers.After all, the veteran ranked only 19th in field goal percentage during the 2018 regular season and also missed the first of his three field goal attempts in Super Bowl 53 — making the NFL’s most recent championship game the third straight in which Gostkowski was unsuccessful on at least one of his kicks. He was generally accurate on extra points all year long and tremendous on kickoffs, but an argument can be made that he did not live up to his status among the most expensive kickers in the NFL.As a result, the two sides will have to find a middle ground in the upcoming days and weeksthat works for both — if not, the Patriots might look towards the draft and subsequent free agency period to at least bring in a challenger if not successor for their long-term placekicker. No matter what happens, though Stephen Gostkowski Jerseys Stitched , one thing seems certain: Gostkowski becoming the league’s highest-paid kicker once again will likely not happen given his age and recent inconsistencies. The New England Patriots recorded their first road victory of the season last week, and will now have a chance to win two in a row – and to extend their current win streak to five: on Monday night, the Patriots will play a 2-5 Buffalo Bills team features an average defense and an offense that ranks dead last in the NFL when it comes to scoring.Let’s analyze the matchup by taking a look at some of the advanced stats heading into the game (courtesy of SB Nation’s Bill Connelly; for his methodology please click here).Patriots offense vs Bills defenseNormal down and distance in the open fieldIn the open field – between the offense’s 10 and defense’s 30 – the Bills actually match up relatively evenly with Tom Brady and company. There are two noticeable outliers, though: third down distance and big plays. Despite improving slightly when compared to last week, New England is still near the bottom when it comes to producing plays of 20+ yards. Buffalo’s defense, on the other hand, is one of the NFL’s best in stopping them. Don’t expect the Patriots to suddenly turn into an explosive offense this week.Backed Up Situations Near the Goal LineThe Patriots continue to improve their success rate when backed up, with the turnover percentage still hurting from a tipped week one interception. The Bills’ defense, meanwhile, ranks relatively well when it comes to limiting an offense’s effectiveness inside the opposing 10-yard line.Red ZoneLast week, the Patriots were able to slightly improve most of their red zone statistics. Against Buffalo http://www .patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-jeremy-hill-jersey , they could have a chance to continue this trend: while the Bills defense is among the league’s best when it comes to limiting success – an offense gaining 50% of necessary yardage on first down, 70% on second down, and 100% on third and fourth down – between the 20 and 30, the unit struggles the closer it gets to its own goal line. Third DownsThe Patriots’ overall third down conversion rate (44.2%) ranks them eighth in the league – and the advanced stats show that the team is among the best in the NFL no matter the situation. Buffalo’s defense, meanwhile, has its fair share of problems on third downs. This, in turn, could help New England control the tempo of Monday’s game.Blitz SituationsWhile the overall matchup between New England’s offense and Buffalo’s defense favors the visitors, the Bills actually match up well when it comes to sack rate in blitz situations – obvious passing downs specified as first-and-18 or more, second-and-14 or more, and third-and-3 or more. Facing a normally aggressive pass rush for the second week in a row should be another good test for a Patriots offensive line that is performing well this season but might again miss starting right tackle Marcus Cannon.Patriots defense vs Bills offenseNormal down and distance in the open fieldWhile the Patriots defense is inconsistent in the open field Youth Matthew Slater Jerseys , it faces a very favorable matchup this week no matter the category: the Bills’ offense has major issues when it comes to moving the football, sustaining drives, or generating big plays. New England’s defense – despite its weaknesses – should be able to find success against this unit and generate some momentum moving forward.Backed Up Situations Near the Goal LineThe Patriots are no world beaters when having an opposing offense pinned down inside its 10-yard line, but the statistical matchup still favors them over an offense that has a hard time moving the football when backed up – and when not backed up, it does not really make much of a difference.Red ZoneWhile they struggle in the open field, the Bills offense is among the league’s best when it comes to effectiveness in the red zone (to be fair, they do have a smaller sample size than other teams). That being said, New England’s defense is improving in this area of the field as well and took a noticeable step forward when compared to last week’s advanced stats report.Third DownsNew England’s defense is getting slightly better when it comes to defending third downs, but it still is one of the least successful teams in stopping third-and-medium as well as third-and-short. Luckily for the unit, it will go against an offense on Monday that is bad on keeping drives alive no matter the yardage it has to gain. Overall, the Bills convert just 27.4% of their third down tries – second worst in the league.Blitz SituationsObvious passing situations are not exactly the Patriots’ defensive strong suit Matthew Slater Jerseys Stitched , but as is the case with plenty of other categories they are again favored over the Bills offense. When forced to play from behind the sticks, Buffalo is usually unable to dig itself out of the hole.While Buffalo has some sneaky strengths – goal line offense, open field defense – the Patriots match up very well against the team and, at least from a statistical perspective, should be able to come away with a win. That being said, New England will still need to find a way to overcome some of its personnel losses (Sony Michel will be out, Rob Gronkowski and Marcus Cannon might be limited) and recent turnover issues. All in all, though, it is hardly a surprise that the Patriots are seen as 13-point favorites.
