Patriots downplay jumping back into AFC playoff picture as No. 7 seed – Boston Herald


GLENDALE, Ariz. — For at least the next six days, the Patriots are a playoff team.

Monday night’s win at Arizona pushed the Pats back into the AFC playoff picture as the third and final Wild Card team. The Patriots vaulted the Chargers and Jets, who are also 7-6, but lose head-to-head tiebreakers to Bill Belichick and Co. If the postseason started this week, the seventh-seeded Pats would travel to play No. 2 Kansas City in the Wild Card round.

After Monday’s win, the Pats can clinch a playoff berth by winning out, but they aren’t taking any time to relish their position.

“One game at a time. It’s a one-game season. There’s going to be a lot of change over these four weeks for everybody. That’s just how it goes,” said Pats center and captain David Andrews. “You start looking at that stuff, you start focusing on that and you’re gonna let something slip away. So, it’s a one-game season, and that’s how you have to look at it.”
