When was the last regular season game the Patriots played with so much on the line? Throw out the Jets game from last week. but prior to that. Last year the only one that could enter the debate would be week 16 but while that had history implications it was not as pivitol as this game. So now you have to go back to 06 and I am not sure there was a bigger game that year than this one so it might even go back to 05. thoughts???
