Chris Gasper joins the Felger and Mazz show and tackles a number of Patriots issues. Should the Patriots play for the win (and a potential first round bye) or keep their starters healthy (and settle for the No. 3 or 4 seed)?

"I think because you can still get one of those two first round byes, I'm with Aquib Talib, I'm going to win," says Gasper. "That's the way I would approach it."

But the Patriots don't necessarily need the bye. What they need is momentum.

"I think momentum's important," says Gasper. "The Patriots lost a little bit of momentum the last two weeks just with the way they've played and obviously Brady wasn't happy with it. It is important to go into the playoffs playing really good football and right now they're not doing that."

The Patriots have a lot on the line when they kickoff against the Dolphins - a potential bye, and more importantly, their mojo.
