After dropping a 45-spot on the St. Louis Rams in London, the Pats spent their bye week tinkering with -- not overhauling -- a 5-3 team that is coming into its own on both sides of the ball. As for the Bills, they seem reluctant to give carries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, while the "D" has been more like an "F." In Gillette Stadium, the Patriots might just steamroll on. But if Buffalo wants to keep its heart beating, the Bills have to have this one.
