 The New England Patriots are all but guaranteed a spot in the 2014 playoffs, the question now is weather or not the road to the Super Bowl will be through Foxborough. Currently the Patriots hold the number one seed in the AFC earning a bye and home field advantage throughout. Week 14 will be arguably the most important for them because it will have huge ramifications come the playoffs. If the Chargers (8-4) somehow manage to win this matchup on Sunday night, the Patriots will be more than just knocked off the top tier but land squarely on the 3rd spot. This game is not one to take lightly for the Patriots as the record shows Brady is 2-2 at Qualcomm Stadium and the two wins have been decided by 3 points each. Even with that history, the Patriots have been playing their best football in years so odds are that they will win and vegas agrees as they open up as 3 point favorites. Another bit of history to ease the minds of Pat’s fans (as if it was needed), no team comes back from a loss better than the Pats. Since 2003, the Pats are 36-4 after a loss, and have won the last nine in a row. The Patriots have won their last three games following a loss by an average of 27.7 points. So there you have it, this is by far the most important game for the Patriots this week as home field advantage is at stake.
