BUFFALO, N.Y. [WKBW] — For much of the 2020 offseason, the Buffalo Bills have been the betting favorites in the AFC East. That changed on Sunday when the New England Patriots agreed to a one-year deal with former NFL MVP Cam Newton.
The 31-year-old quarterback has battled injuries for much of the last two seasons and has lost his last eight games under center. But before a shoulder injury in 2018, Newton was once again playing MVP-caliber football.
