The AFC East closed out Week 14 with a wild one on Monday Night Football. It wasn’t pretty in the gusty winds of Buffalo, but the Patriots held off the Bills to get a huge divisional win. The Patriots won 14-10 to take a game and a half lead on the the Bills. More importantly, New England claimed the first game in the head-to-head series and that could prove critical as a tiebreaker.

Meanwhile, the Dolphins are suddenly on fire, having won five straight to improve to 6-7. The level of competition isn’t great, but Miami is only a game and a half back of the final AFC wild card berth. They head into their bye and then face the Jets, Saints, Titans, and Patriots to close out the season.
