FOXBORO -- If the Patriots and 49ers are the two teams left standing at the end, then we’ll remember Sunday night’s game as a terrific appetizer to what should be an amazing main course of football down the road in New Orleans.

While the Texans offense was defined in many ways by its reliance on play action, the Niners have their offensive wrinkle that Patriots fans should keep an eye out for this week in the pistol.

At the age of 31, he’s carved out a career as one of the best big men in the NFL. He’s been to four Pro Bowls, voted a second-team All-Pro twice and been a Super Bowl winner. He’s also been a part of two other teams that have made it all the way to the big game.

The Randy Moss who will face the Patriots Sunday night at Gillette Stadium isn’t the same guy who left New England two-plus years ago.

The idea the Patriots’ success this season has been because they’ve been gifted with a softer schedule than the rest of their AFC counterparts is one of the league’s great misconceptions. The truth of the matter is that by just about every metric, New England has faced the sternest test of any of its conference counterparts.

Remember when the regular-season showdown between the Patriots and Colts was simply the first act of a two-part miniseries that everyone thought was ultimately going to be settled down the road? CBS cranked up the hype machine, national writers fell back on the default “good vs.

In the NFL’s high-rent district, Sunday marked the end of one journey and the start of another. For the Patriots, winning the AFC East title -- which they wrapped up with a 23-16 win over the Dolphins in South Florida -- is the first goal on a to-do list they hope ends with a happy trip to New Orleans in two months.

With the post-Thanksgiving stretch starting this week -- and the Patriots having put enough separation between themselves and the rest of the AFC East to start talking about possible division-clinching games -- it’s not too early to take a look at the AFC playoff picture. With that in mind, if the postseason started today, here’s how things would look:

FOXBORO -- For the Patriots, the loss of tight end Rob Gronkowski means more responsibility will be doled out to several offensive skill position players across the board in the coming weeks.
