The 8-3 New England Patriots will travel to sunny Florida to take on the Miami Dolphins this Sunday. The Dolphins currently are 5-6 behind rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill has surprised many with his good first season and has put his team in a position to at least be relevant. The Dolphins have had a surprisingly decent history with the Patriots especially in home games, which will make this game somewhat interesting. Both teams are coming off victories as well. This week’s game will be played at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium at 1 PM ET.
Last week the Patriots crushed the Jets 49-19 in what was the most embarrassing game of the Jets pathetic season. The Patriots scored in every aspect including defense and special teams. The Pats have been as hot as any team, and have scored 108 points in their last 2 games. They have actually not lost since a week 6 in a 1 point loss to the Seahawks in Seattle. Oddly enough, The Seahawks just faced Miami last week but in not so similar an ending.
It was the Dolphins who were able to get a 24-21 victory over the Seahawks last Sunday in Miami. The Dolphins scored 17 points in the 4th quarter to come back and pick up a win. Tannehill threw for 253 yards and a touchdown. The team will have to score much more than 24 if they plan to beat a team like the Patriots who are scoring at will. They spare no expense on points and are quick to bury teams that even try to contend with them.
