After watching the Week 17 matchups, Scouts Inc. shares some observations about this year's playoff teams.

Comback kids: The Patriots' new strategy is to spot their opponent three touchdowns or so before they begin to come back. Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was razor sharp to begin Sunday's game against New England's extremely generous pass defense; he threw for 246 yards just in the first half. The Bills scored the first 21 points, but the Patriots responded in massive fashion with 49 unanswered points as Wes Welker (as usual) and their amazing tight ends destroyed Buffalo's defense.
