FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Zane Gonzalez Jersey . - The Buffalo Bills ruined their chance for their first playoff berth in 15 years when they lost to one of the NFLs worst teams.Now they can salvage a consolation prize by beating one of the best.Good luck with that.The New England Patriots have clinched the top seed in the AFC. Against the Bills, theyre 12-0 in Gillette Stadium and 26-3 since coach Bill Belichick arrived in 2000, the same year Buffalo began the longest current post-season drought.So what would it mean to upset the Patriots on Sunday one week after being upset by the Oakland Raiders?Itll prove we dont have any quit, Bills centre Eric Wood said, because it would be real easy to fold up your tent and really focus on next year, but (this is) a big opportunity against a really good team whos had our number for years.The Patriots (12-3) have home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs even if they lose Sunday. It would make the Bills job easier if quarterback Tom Brady and other starters spend most or all of the game on the bench.Belichick isnt giving any hints — only providing his standard non-answer.Were going to do whats best for the New England Patriots, he saidThe Bills (8-7) already are guaranteed their best record since they went 9-7 in 2004.Weve got a chance to play one more game coming off of a very disappointing loss, coach Doug Marrone said. We want to get that taste out of our mouth.Brady probably will start behind the regular line, hoping to go into the first-round bye with a better performance than last Sundays 17-16 win over the New York Jets.Nothing in the past has mattered. Nothing weeks from now is going to matter, he said. I just think everybodys got to focus on what we need to do this week to try to make ourselves a better football team.Hell face a strong defence — first in sacks, fourth in yards allowed, fifth in points allowed — that welcomes the challenge.I want them to start their starters, Bills safety Aaron Williams said. I need Tom Brady to step in my house. That would be great.It also could lead to more disappointment.A couple of times we almost had them on the ropes, Wood said. To go there and kind of get that monkey off our back would (be) big, you know, go and prove that in the AFC East were not that bottom feeder whipping boy. Were here to stay.Some things to watch on Sunday:HAPPY AT HOME: The Patriots have won 35 straight home games against AFC teams, the longest streak in either conference since the 1970 merger.Weve got great fans, Brady said. Weve got the weather elements, conditions. The wind always comes into play. Because we practice in that, I always feel like thats a great advantage for us.RUSHING TO RECORD: After rushing last Sunday for 13 yards, fourth lowest in team history, the Bills have 1,378 for the season. If they dont get 175 on Sunday, they wont pass the franchise low for a 16-game season (1,552 in 2006).Thats not something you want on your resume, running back Fred Jackson said.Injuries that sidelined Jackson and C.J. Spiller have hurt, but both are back.STINGY SECOND HALF: The Patriots have allowed four field goals and no touchdowns in the second half of their past five games. With about five minutes left last Sunday, Vince Wilfork tipped a 52-yard field goal attempt by Nick Folk that would have given the Jets a one-point lead. Wilfork also had nine tackles, his most since making 10 on Dec. 4, 2011.Were not taking anything for granted, especially this time of year, Wilfork said. You want to be able to win in December.RED ZONE: Marrone said Kyle Orton will make his 12th straight start for an offence that has struggled inside opponents 20-yard line. The Bills have 20 touchdowns in 49 drives into the red zone, the NFLs second-worst touchdown efficiency. They never reached the Raiders 20 last Sunday. The Patriots have held teams to one touchdown in the last 12 drives inside the 20.DEFENSIVE DECLINE: The Bills allowed Oaklands Derek Carr to throw two touchdown passes after holding Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers without one in their previous two games. They have two sacks in those three games after getting 48 in the first 12.Weve just got to go back to the old ways that weve been doing things, linebacker Nickell Robey said. We just have to be physical, take it to their offence.___AP NFL website: and Antonio Callaway Jersey . -- Canadian womens amateur golf champion Brooke Henderson is a little less starstruck as she prepares for her second career appearance at an LPGA Tour major event. T. J. Carrie Browns Jersey .com) - Guess whos back, back again? Josh Gordons back, tell a friend. . The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the confidential nature of the search, confirmed reports by several media outlets. The interview took place in Southern California on Monday. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- This one could be a costly victory for the Kansas City Royals and an expensive loss for the Tampa Bay Rays. Jason Vargas took a shutout into the ninth inning, Alcides Escobar hit a three-run double and the Royals beat the Rays 4-2 Monday night in a game that included two significant injuries. Rays starter Matt Moore (0-2) came out in the fifth inning with a sore left elbow. The All-Star lefty grimaced after throwing a pitch to Norichika Aoki and was immediately removed by manager Joe Maddon. Two innings later, Royals second baseman Omar Infante was hit in the left jaw by a pitch from Heath Bell. A bleeding Infante walked off the field under his own power. Moore won 17 games last year, but missed 31 games with an elbow injury. He threw 78 pitches Monday and was replaced by Cesar Ramos. "It has to be checked," Maddon said. "There will be tests tomorrow. We dont know whats going on yet. Well get an update later. He tried to talk me out of taking him out but I said I didnt think its a good idea. I went out there and I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt. I like to communicate with our guys. He just felt something on a pitch. We knew we cant take any chances on anything." Moore said his final pitch was a changeup. "There was no particular pain," he said. "It really came out of nowhere. I felt it when I was pitching to Escobar, on a changeup, and then I threw two more changeups to Aoki and I felt it. I actually threw a curveball to Aoki to see if I would feel it then, too, but I didnt. It may have something to do with changeups in that situation." Moore, who will have an MRI exam Tuesday, went on the disabled list last July 31 with a sore elbow and did not return until Sept. 3. "Its the same pitch and the area is pretty much the exact same spot," Moore said. Infante was spitting blood as trainers held a towel to his face. "They put a number of stitches in there to close the cut," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "They are going to go scan it and see if his jaw is fractured. Well know more later. Im not going to make any decisions (on roster moves) until we find out whats going on with Omar and well move forward from there. Nick Chubb Jersey. "He was bleeding tremendously from the cut. I didnt know until they had taken him upstairs that he got hit on the jaw. When we got there they had the towel (over his head) and there was blood all down his shirt. There was no cut on his forehead that I could see." Danny Valencia ran for Infante, who signed a $30.25 million, four-year contract with the Royals in December after hitting .318 last season for Detroit. "He was smoked. Were worried about a concussion, too. It shakes you for sure because its a very ugly sound for somebody to be hit in the face," Yost said. "It was a cool night, but I noticed I broke out in a sweat real quick, so it definitely affected me. Of course, you have a lot of worry about it." Vargas (1-0) allowed four hits, walked one and struck out two in eight-plus innings, lowering his ERA to 1.20 in two starts. He lost his shutout bid when Ben Zobrist homered on his second pitch in the ninth. Greg Holland replaced Vargas and earned his third save, but not before giving up an RBI single to pinch-hitter Matt Joyce. Escobar was 1 for 19 before his bases-loaded double off the left field wall on a 2-2 pitch from Bell with two outs in the seventh. Escobars three RBIs matched his career high. Alex Gordon, Salvador Perez and Lorenzo Cain singled to load the bases before Escobars first extra-base hit of the season. Eric Hosmer singled home Aoki, who tripled, in the first inning. The Rays, who have lost seven straight at Kauffman Stadium, have scored three runs in their four losses this year while going 2 for 33 with runners in scoring position during those defeats. Evan Longoria had three of the Rays six hits. NOTES: The Royals placed LHPs Tim Collins (strained left elbow) and Francisley Bueno (sprained left little finger) on the disabled list. They recalled RHP Michael Mariot and LHP Donnie Joseph from Triple-A Omaha. ... The Rays are 3-14 in road openers. They have not won a road opener since 2010 at Baltimore. ... Royals RHP Louis Coleman (bruised right middle finger) threw a bullpen session and could be activated Tuesday, the first day he is eligible to come off the disabled list.
