The New England Patriots racked up their 12th win of the year by grinding out a 37-16 over the Buffalo Bills on Christmas Eve. It keeps the Pats on track to get the #1 seed in the AFC.

They control their own destiny on that - a win over the Jets next week gets them the top seed, no matter what else happens to Pittsburgh or Jacksonville.

Dion Lewis was one of the stars of the game, a career-high 129 yards on 24 carries. He caught a TD pass and ran one in for a TD.

Gronk made a spectacular one-handed TD catch. He totaled five receptions for 67 yards.

And, Tom Brady threw to nine different players, 21-for-28 and 224 yards, with a TD and an interception.

It is the 8th straight season the Patriots have won at least 12 games and that is a new NFL record.
