Ask Vic. Do you think the Patriots lost on purpose just to play Jacksonville instead of Pittsburgh?Okay, okay, ... the fix is in! There, it got said.
Vic: The Patriots didn't play their best people against Miami and even though they can say they were trying to rest key starters and keep them healthy for the playoffs, I don't think it bothers the Patriots at all that their first-round opponent is Jacksonville. Hey, what does that drop-kick say and how about that conversion pass attempt that sailed five yards out of bounds? Let's be logical about this: Do you think Bill Belichick wanted to go into overtime six days before his team's playoff game? Brian Billick made that mistake.
