The New England Patriots are playing on Thursday night for a second consecutive week.
But this time, they'll be coming off a loss.
The Pats had their three-game winning streak snapped on Thanksgiving in a 33-26 road loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The defeat dropped New England (6-5) from sixth in the AFC to right behind the last playoff position in eighth.
Climbing back into the top seven this week won't be an easy task, as the Pats welcome MVP candidate Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills (8-3) to town. It will mark the first of two meetings between the AFC East rivals over the final six weeks of the season.
A win on Thursday would bring the Pats to within one game of Buffalo with five to play. A loss, and New England could fall further out of the playoff picture.
