The AFC East has wrapped up its Week 14 slate and the Patriots moved a step closer to a division title without playing a down. The Patriots were on a bye but the Bills lost their road game against the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay was thumping them early but Buffalo put up a game effort in nearly completing the comeback win.

Nonetheless, Buffalo drops to 7-6 and is now just scuffling to get into the playoffs. New England has a two-game lead on Buffalo with four to go with a Week 16 matchup remaining between the two. Buffalo is now in seventh place, holding the final wild card due to tiebreakers. There are five AFC teams with a 7-6 record, so there is a long way to go in the playoff chase.

Meanwhile, the Dolphins had the week off and are now only a game back of Buffalo. The Jets lost to the Saints and were officially eliminated from playoff contention.
