Why this game is intriguing:The last time these AFC East rivals played, the Patriots found themselves at a crossroads, trailing at halftime and about to go into a deep hole on the road against a Bills team that had high expectations for 2012. Then Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes forced a fumble, and the franchises have been going in opposite directions ever since. 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.
