In the grand scheme of things it won't mean anything but it would be somewhat meaningful if the Patriots can jump out to a fast start against Buffalo and quickly snap their neck. Call it a killer instinct if you will. The past few games have developed a lot of mental toughness and will help in the long run but against the better AFC teams the Patriots are basically a push. Getting behind by 10-14 point in the playoffs in a recipe for disapointment. Aside from wrapping up home field advantage I will be very interested to see how they open the game. The Patriots should ditate intensity and squish the life out of the Bills.
