Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is not interested in a game of hypotheticals. During his press conference on Monday, the coach was asked if the loss to the Colts on Saturday night was a good thing for the Patriots.

Heading into next Sunday’s matchup with the Buffalo Bills, the Patriots sit as the third seed in the AFC. In a year with a rookie quarterback, many wondered if the Patriots would even be in a position for a spot in the playoffs.

Now, with focus shifting to the Bills, Belichick is not interested in counting moral victories. Via NESN’s Dakota Randall, the coach is only looking forward.

“I don’t know,” Belichick said. “We’ll see. We’ll see what happens this week. We usually don’t focus too much on what happened the week before, good or bad. After we get through it and correct it, talk about it, focus on the game that’s coming up and try to prepare the best we can for it. I don’t think living in the past and worrying about last week’s game all week and all the psychological effects and bunch of other garbage, I don’t think that has anything to do with the Buffalo game.”

In the meantime, Buffalo is coming off a 21-14 win over the Carolina Panthers. There is a lot on the line next week, as a Buffalo win could put the Bills on top of the AFC East.
