Bills coach Sean McDermott on Monday about how his team will approach playing Rob Gronkowksi this Sunday after his illegal hit two weeks ago against Tre'Davious White: "We got too much work to do, and this is too good of an opponent for us to talk about it or think about it."

With their win Sunday, the Patriots ensured a first-place AFC East finish. As part of the 2018 scheduling formula, that means a visit to the AFC North first-place finisher. So it is back to Pittsburgh in the 2018 regular season.

The quirkiest NFL Sunday in a long time included all of the league's greatest hits. The AFCs' No. 1 seed might have been decided when the Steelers' go-ahead touchdown was invalidated by the infuriating catch rule. Later, referee Gene Steratore granted the Cowboys a first down on a measurement so close that he used a folded index card to gauge it. And then, the Raiders lost possession on their final drive when quarterback Derek Carr's fumble dribbled out of the end zone for a touchback. All that was missing on this day was an illegal bat.
