The (11-3) New England Patriots host the (8-6) Buffalo Bills.
The Patriots are looking to keep their place atop the AFC with a necessary win over a Bills team that need a win to stay in the playoff hunt. Who would’ve thought this game was going to be so important? The schedule makers deserve a nice round of applause for this one.
New England defeated the Bills 23-3 on December 3rd and it’s already time for the rematch. The Patriots under head coach Bill Belichick have always had Buffalo’s number and that will have to hold true yet again for New England to have a chance at homefield advantage and a first round bye. Any slip up by the Patriots could drop them to the 3rd seed and a potential wild card weekend showdown with the Bills.
