With the AFC East wrapped up, the next thing on the holiday shopping list for the Patriots to address is a first-round bye.

They can do that with a win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, coupled with a Broncos loss at Pittsburgh. Patriots fans will have their eyes glued to the latter match up, as that's CBS's national game of the week, so they'll be able to watch it right after they watch the Pats manhandle the Titans.
