By Brian MacPhersonFOXBORO -- With Baltimore, Houston and Pittsburgh all losing last weekend, the 11-3 Patriots can clinch the AFC's No. 1 seed simply by winning their final two games.
Bill Belichick didn't want to talk at all about playoff scenarios on Tuesday. All he wanted to talk about was winning games -- starting with Saturday's game at home against Miami.
"We can't control what any of those other teams do, so we'll just try to go out there and play well against Miami on Saturday," Belichick said.
A follow-up question about playoff seeding was met with the same dismissal from Belichick.
"We have to go out and win," he said. "That's what we have to do. We can't worry about what everybody else does or doesn't do. We don't have any control over that. If we don't do well, I don't think we'll be where we want to be. Right now, all we're worried about is Miami."
