    Right now the Pats are 10-0 and the Bills are 5-5.

    Since we now hold the tiebreaker with Buffalo (head to head sweep), the next Patriot win or the next Buffalo loss clinches the AFC East for us. As of right now, Buffalo could still mathematically win the division.

    Anything beyond that would have to wait. We have a magic number of 4 to clinch finishing ahead of Jacksonville and Indianapolis. Can't determine the magic number with Pittsburgh because we play them in three weeks. By then, however, clinching a 1st round bye could be within reach. Clinching HFA may go down to the final two weeks if we win out and Indy does the same.

    But that's pretty awesome, division champs on Thanksgiving weekend.

    Yeah, one more Bills loss and we could have clinched before Thanksgiving - I guess I'll get over it :D

    We're in phenomenal shape for HF throughout, even if we lose to Pitt we're still 1 1/2 games (1/2 game for them winning tiebreaker) ahead. We need to lose three games they need to win out; it's not happening.

    As I pointed out elsewhere:

    Pats 10-0
    Colts 8-2
    Steelers 7-3

    Pats already have HTH over the Colts, so the Pats going 4-2 or better over the remaining six games automatically wins the conference; so long as the Pats don't lose more than two, it literally does not matter who might beat them.
