Rich and Alec are going to break down the game below.
The Patriots are now 1-point underdogs, which isn't too far off from the game predictions. A lot will depend on how Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore and whether or not he gets to cover Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
We went to the tape to evaluate the Bills and to see how they win and where they're vulnerable.
Mike has offered his four key match-ups for the game along with his X-Factor and his game plan for taking on the Bills. Bernd has highlighted the first divisional playoff game between the Patriots and the Bills and has questioned how to combat the Bills fierce defensive line.
Center Ryan Wendell will not be active due to an illness, while defensive tackle Dominique Easley will rest his hip. Running back Travaris Cadet is expected to see the field.
