That 17th game is the difference. Pats had to play a healthy Dallas team and Miami got the lowly Giants.
This whole 17th game thing, and extra wildcard team/removal of the bye week for the 2 seed is incredibly stupid. Even if the Patriots benefit from being the only bye team, or the last playoff team in, I will never like this new playoff setup

Not really. If the Pats beat the Bills and Jags or the Pats or Bills win one more game and the Dolphins lose one game, the Dolphins are out of the division race.

If Agholor and Harry cant go who comes up to fill their shoes?

Looks like Slater, Gunner, Nixon and Wilkerson. Im not crazy about Gunner or Slater.

I am guessing Agholor will pass concussion protocol by the end of the week. He didn't look bad coming off the field. I think the refs made them the medical staff do a concussion protocol which refs can do. The extra day will definitely help that too.

Harry had to be helped off the field. I am guessing he will be out on Sunday.

I watched yesterday's Bills game...Buffalo didn't look great despite the scoreboard. Josh Allen was 19/34 for 210 yds. Plus the Bills gave up 151 yards rushing (including Cam's 71 yards). All week long we are going to hear from the Bills about how they are looking for "revenge" after getting embarrassed a couple weeks ago.

Bills will be ready for the ground game. Need to mix things up.

I am sure the Pats will pass a hell of a lot more than they did in Buffalo.

But the Bills were ready for the running game the last time with putting upwards to 10 or 11 men in the box and even if you take away the long TD run by Harris, the Pats rushed for 154 yards. I would assume they will be less prepared for the run on Sunday because they cannot risk putting so many men in the box because if the Pats run a simple screen pass out of a run formation it could go to the house with that many men playing close to the line.

Same with a TE "block down" and release. Goal line formation in the middle of the field is high risk as the Patriots saw themselves against the Colts.

Pats need to get healthy for this one and quickly.
