The New England Patriots are out of their playoffs, meaning that they will play meaningless — at least as far as the standings are concerned — regular season games for the first time since the year 2000. The first of those games will see the Patriots go up against an old foe of theirs, the Buffalo Bills who took over the AFC East crown this season.
