1. AFC teams that present the toughest matchup to the Patriots in a playoff-type setting.
2. Can the defensive line and pass rush keep it up?
3. Opinion on what has happened to 2010 second-round pick Jermaine Cunningham.
4. Gary Guyton's lack of playing time and thoughts on Jeff Tarpinian.
5. Remaining schedule for the Patriots and what it means.
6. Fitting the $12 charge at the George Washington bridge under the salary cap.
