Bills face interesting trend in games after they play Patriots

The Bills are locked into the fifth seed no matter the result.

These two division rivals opened the season against each other at MetLife Stadium in which Buffalo prevailed, 17-16, in a game in which the Bills dominated the stats (370-223) despite losing the turnovers 4-1. It was one of a dozen games in which the Jets were limited to less than 400 yards this season.

Buffalo’s 7-1 straight up and against the spread record in the last eight home games, and its 24-8 straight up and against the spread record at home in games after taking on New England, including 14-1 SU and 13-2 ATS against losing foes, sets the table.

And remember, NFL home teams in season finales headed to the postseason are an eye-opening 146-90-6 ATS since 1980. The Jets’ 1-10 ATS away record versus .500 or greater conference opponents cements it.

Prediction: BUFFALO over Jets by 10.
