A battle for the northeast.
The NFL playoffs are starting, and there is one game, in particular, I have my eye on. Today is Saturday, January 15, 2022, and at 8:15 pm eastern time, the New England Patriots get another chance to prove they are the kings of the AFC East. Facing off once again the Buffalo Bills in the NFL wild-card round. After finishing the 2021-22 season in second behind the Buffalo Bills in the division.
The last time these two teams faced off was on Sunday, December 26, 2021. New England was coming into that game, having won their previous encounter with Buffalo at a score of 14-10. That game also marks the Patriots head coach Bill Belichick's historic 800th game as an assistant, coordinator and head coach. However, to the delight of Bills fans and the horror of Patriots fans losing at home in Foxborough. Ultimately the result of that game determined who took the division. The New England Patriots will also be hungry for redemption after losing their last regular-season game to another AFC East rival, the Miami Dolphins.
Their last game against the Buffalo Bills was a battle all the way until the fourth quarter. With the Buffalo Bills fighting for every inch, going for it on 4th and 1 yard four times during the game and converting. Including a few players on the Bills starting line posting career high numbers leading the Bills to prevail 33-21 over the Patriots'. Now for the tiebreaker, and in this game, everything is on the line. Today will find out which team's road to the Super Bowl gets to continue and who's going home.
