FOXBORO -- The Patriots want to know what it's like to win again. A week 1 victory in Tennessee seems like it was too long ago.

"It'll be very exciting to see how a win feels around here," said veteran Vince Wilfork. "So, that's my focus."

Everyone knows that Buffalo has historically been a tough place for New England to play. The Patriots expect another dogfight at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday.

To get back on the winning track, Wilfork believes it's about focus.

"We have to put more into what we're doing, just a little bit more," he said. "When times get tough, when your back's against the wall, you have to be able to settle down and get back to basics.

"We have to focus, we have to focus. Do some things a lot better than we have been doing, plain and simple."

The concept of this Patriots team beginning the season 1-2, hasn't been a simple one to grasp.

But entering Sunday's Week 4 game against the Bills, the Patriots are reminding everyone that it's a 16-game schedule.

"There's a lot of football left," said Wilfork. "And it's not how you start. It's how you finish. So, hopefully we can get better as each week goes on. And hopefully we'll be ok."
