The road to the AFC championship will indeed go through Gillette Stadium. The New England Patriots took care of business by beating the NY Jets 26-6 and finish 13-3 with the #1 seed.

The Pats get a bye week and then host the lowest remaining seed in Foxboro either January 12th or 13th.

On wicked cold today, Deon Lewis ran the ball 26 times for 93 runs. He ran for one touchdown and caught a pass for another.

Tom Brady finished the regular season 18-for-37, 190 yards, and two TDs. Brian Hoyer played the final six minutes.
