The New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers have the AFC bye weeks for the postseason and there are a few teams in the running to play during wild card weekend.

The Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs won their divisions and are locked into the third and fourth seeds, while the second-place team in every division- the Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans, and Los Angeles Chargers- are all still playing for a potential wild card berth.

Which of these six teams that the Patriots could play in the divisional round should scare New England the most? Is it the Jaguars or Chargers and their potent defense? Is it the Chiefs or Ravens and their track record of success against the Patriots? Or is it the Titans or Bills because of their strong ground games?

There are also some key takeaways from the Patriots win over the Bills and we can look ahead to the week 17 game against the New York Jets, too.
