We are entering the last third of the NFL regular season and every week, from now on, it becomes much more important for each of the teams, since, the postseason is just around the corner, and losing games is not an option for any of those who dream of being in the playoff party.
In each of the divisions we have battled for first place in the standings or there is simply a team that is slipping away after a great season.
The AFC East is very tight, with the Dolphins, Bills, and Jets very close to each other. The Chiefs and Titans are running away with their respective divisions with 9-2 and 7-4 records, respectively. While in the AFC North, the Ravens and Bengals are battling for first place in the standings, both with a 7-4 record.
The Eagles are very close to sealing their ticket to the postseason, as they continue a spectacular season with a 10-1 record. They are followed by the Cowboys at 8-3, the Giants at 7-4, and the Commanders at 7-5.

Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on the Patriots
Although the Patriots have won 5 of their last 7 games, they come into this game after a 26-33 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving Day. This cut short the Patriots’ streak and their illusion of getting much closer to the top of the AFC East.
Mac Jones is the team’s main offensive weapon and is completing 69.2% of his passes for 1,768 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions. Then we have Jakobi Meyers and DeVante Parker, who combine for 991 yards per reception and 4 touchdowns, while Rhamondre Stevenson has 50 receptions.
The Patriot’s ground game averages 109 yards per game, with their leading rusher, Rhamondre Stevenson, averaging 680 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Last week, we saw the Patriots mix it up on offense, pushing the ball downfield with 3 and 4 wide open receivers, which generated Mac Jones’ best performance this season.
Why Bet on the Bills
On the other hand, the Buffalo Bills continue with their winning streak that right now is at 2. Thanks to this, they have managed to stay tied for first place in the AFC East with the Dolphins, who have 5 consecutive wins.
The Bills have been one of the main candidates to fight for the championship trophy this season or at least to be present in the next Super Bowl, so it is not surprising that they are playing at a high level and that they are fighting for the leadership of their division.
The Bills have won 3 of their last 4 away games. Josh Allen, one of the best quarterbacks in the league leads the offense averaging 63.9% in pass completions for 3,183 yards, 23 touchdowns, and only 11 interceptions. As we note, the Bills depend on Allen’s form in each of their offenses.
Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis combine for 1,760 yards per reception with 14 touchdowns. In addition to commanding the offense with his passing, Allen also leads the team in ground offense with 561 yards and 5 touchdowns.
The Bills are coming off a close win over the Lions by a score of 28-25.
