Kraft: Top regular-season game in tenure

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- After a guest appearance on "Mike & Mike" this morning at Showcase Live, Patriots owner Robert Kraft answered questions for a video segment on ESPNBoston.com (video above).

He was asked where he ranks tonight's regular-season game, in terms of magnitude, in his tenure.

"We had a family gathering last night for the holiday and we were chatting among ourselves and I said to Jonathan [Kraft], 'In the 17 years we've owned the team, this is the biggest regular-season game in our history,'" Kraft responded.

"I was in Florida, New York and one other state, and everywhere people were saying 'Good luck Monday night.' So there has been a tremendous focus. The fact that we're both 9-2 and in the same division, the impact is so great with a possible [playoff] seed -- No. 1 or the fifth or possibly sixth seed and lack of home-field advantage. It has created this buzz. It's going to be a lot of fun."
