Patriots expecting unprecedented challenge in season finale at Buffalo


FOXBORO — Bills safety Damar Hamlin opened his eyes late Wednesday night for the first time in more than 48 hours.

He followed a series of simple commands from his bed at the University of Cincinnati medical center. Then, he scribbled out a question.

“Did we win?” he wrote, referring to Monday’s game against the Bengals.

News of Hamlin’s question, one sign of his rapid, ongoing recovery from cardiac arrest, brought joy and relief Thursday to a shaken NFL. In Buffalo, Bills players and coaches exuded relief in their first press conferences since Hamlin collapsed and expressed their utmost gratitude to the medical personnel who kept Hamlin alive. In New England, Bill Belichick and the Patriots did the same.

Now, the Pats are slowly pivoting and asking their own question as they forward to Sunday’s game.

“How can we win?”
