Playoffs?!

Yes, we're talking about the Patriots and the playoffs. 

In the last decade, the Patriots and playoffs have become synonymous and this year will not be an exception.

The Patriots hold a season sweep against the New York Jets, and have a home game on the horizon against the nose-diving Buffalo Bills.  Therefore, barring a cataclysmic meltdown against a soft remaining schedule, the Patriots look to be playing for a high seed in the playoffs.

Lately, making the playoffs hasn't been a problem for the Patriots—surviving past the first round has been.

Since their Super Bowl loss against the New York Giants, the Patriots have lost their last two playoff games—both at home.  The way they lost was a bit disturbing, having been dominated on both sides of the ball.

To avoid another one-and-done postseason this year, the Patriots have to make a few minor adjustments.  If they do, a run to the Super Bowl is possible.
