More on the matchup: Buffalo pushed the Patriots to their limit when these team last met in September. It took a late field goal to give New England a win, 23-21. The Patriots have a chance to secure the top seed in the AFC with a win over Buffalo and a little luck. Tom Brady is finding ways to win without Rob Gronkowski, largely on the back of a reliable running game and quickly developing defense.
