Let’s say the games this weekend go perfectly and these teams win: Pats, Falcons, Bills, Bears, Browns, Texans, Rams, Titans, Raiders, Chiefs. You’d have an AFC that looks like this after this week (not counting tiebreakers):

Kansas City 3-1
Buffalo 3-1
Miami 3-1
**New England 2-2**
Cleveland 2-2
Baltimore 2-2
Pittsburgh 2-2
Indianapolis 2-2
Houston 2-2
Tennessee 2-2
Las Vegas 2-2
Jacksonville 1-3
Los Angeles 1-3
Cincinnati 1-3
NYJ 1-3
Denver 0-4

NE would be right in the mix, only a game behind the top seed and an equal or better record compared to all but 3 teams in the conference. Of course things probably won’t go exactly this way, but many could. A win vs Dallas is the most important thing.
We just need a balanced Team effort Offense cannot struggle in these kind of games. We know the D will make some stops Offense have to do their part that is move the the football against the other Team.

It’s definitely a tough schedule, but so far the rest of the AFC has been middling at best with a lot of teams hovering close to .500. If the Pats can keep pace and squeeze into a wild card spot, at that point they’ll have played most of the toughest teams in the league already and won’t be afraid of anyone in the postseason.

Mike Reiss article:

After draft-day slide, NFL DROM Christian Gonzalez shining for Patriots


5. IR returns: Receiver Tyquan Thornton (shoulder), cornerback Jack Jones (hamstring) and offensive lineman Riley Reiff (knee) are eligible to return from injured reserve after Sunday’s game, although it would be a surprise if all three are cleared to do so. For Jones, some around the team were targeting midseason as a more likely timetable, while Thornton’s presence in the locker room Friday could be viewed as a sign that he’s on the cusp.
