The Buffalo Bills will be without half of their starting secondary against the Patriots on Sunday.

The Bills have scratched cornerback Stephon Gilmore and safety Jairus Byrd. Gilmore has a wrist injury and Byd has an injured foot.

With Byrd and Gilmore out, the Bills secondary could have a tough time defending New England's passing attack.
