Buffalo Bills linebacker Brandon Spikes feels that his side's clash with the New England Patriots is a massive game for everyone connected with the club.

Buffalo Bills linebacker Brandon Spikes has admitted that his side's clash against the New England Patriots carries extra significance for him and the whole club.

The Bills will take the field at Orchard Park for the first time under the ownership of Terry and Kim Pegula, after the sale of the club was ratified by the NFL owners on Friday.

Spikes will be in action against his former team for the first time since he left the Patriots franchise earlier this year, and he is hopeful that his new side can mark the match with a victory.

He told reporters: "They drafted me, I spent a lot of time with them, a few years. I had a lot of success. I'm anxious for this.

"I'm not going to say it's personal, but it's big for this organisation, it's big for Buffalo. We all need this. Not just the players, the entire city.

When asked if the occasion would be emotional, Spikes added: "Absolutely. It's my former team. I've got friends still over there. I'm excited. I've been waiting for this for a while now."

The Bills have a 3-2 record this season heading into their crucial AFC East clash.
