In response to CatfishHunter's comment:
I keep hearing that it is; it isn't.
For starters, let's say the Pats lose to the Ravens.
Are they eliminated from the playoffs? Not hardly.
Do they lose the #2 seed? Not necessarily.
Do they still have a chance to win the division outright by beating Buffalo at home? Yes.
Would a win over Buffalo mean a home playoff game? Yes.
"Must win" means win or pack your bags for the offseason.
Well, if the lose it sets a bad set of wheels in motion, and I hope they don't go down that path.
If you allow the Bills to come up here with a chance to knock us off you are asking for nothing but trouble.
I have seen this too many times. Buffalo, with nothing to lose, plays without normal rules in place that contending teams play by. They can run crazy plays, end arounds, deep what the heck bombs, go for it on 4th and what ever who gives a rats azz....
Pats must find a way Sunday.
