47. <p>The Pats remain on top of the AFC (and NFL), and will continue to lead the pack until they lose a game in 2015.</p> <p>Here’s what the month of November looks like for the Patriots: home against the Washington Redskins, away at the New York Gants, home against the Bills and away at the Broncos. The Redskins are easily the worst team in that bunch; expect the Pats to make short work of Kirk Cousins this Sunday. The Giants present slightly more of a threat, and the Bills slightly more than the Giants because they are so familiar with the Pats and have revenge fully on their mind.</p> <p>It’s over three weeks away, but buzz is already being generated about the Patriots-Broncos showdown in Denver on November 29<sup>th</sup>. Without a doubt, the Patriots and Broncos are the two best teams in football, and their colliding right after turkey day will be the most highly anticipated game of the season.</p>. AFC East. 7-0. New England Patriots. 1. player
