The Buffalo Bills are set to take on the New England Patriots in a battle atop the AFC East in just under an hours' time. I don't have much to say about this one, because we all know what's at stake. After two straight divisional losses, the Biils face what is essentially a must-win in a stadium from which they have not emerged victorious since 2000. Without a win, Buffalo falls to 5-4 - a record they also held in 2007, when they finished 7-9.

This is your open game thread for today's game. I'll be here, as always, and hope to see as many of you as possible here as well. If you're a lurker and would like to join in for today's thread, create an account and hop right on in. This is a big one. Get your game faces on, and GO BILLS.
