As the AFC’s sixth seed, New England will take on their division rival and three seeded Buffalo Bills. The two teams split their season series and will enter this matchup riding too very different streaks. The Bills have won four straight games, averaging a +15 point differential over the last month of the season. New England on the other hand, dropped three of their last four and have surrounded a 40 point win with disappointing efforts against a pair of non playoff teams as well as these same Bills.
To move on to the divisional round, the Patriots will need to flip things on its head. Here is how you can watch them attempt to do so.
