There's one reason that win wasn't meaningless. Tannehill. His first comeback win and the Dolphins showed some explosiveness. I hope it's something to build on. I think the team came out flat in the previous two games. Would love to see Miami come out hot to start the Pats game.

only chance to beat the pats is tannehill play like he did in the 4th quarter for a whole game, even then with the fact the pats will probaly put at least 38 on us it still might not be enough.

To beat the Patriots, all of the following must happen:

--Tannehill must be perfect and throw multiple TDs
--The running game must dominate
--The defense has to force multiple turnovers and score at least once
--Special teams has to return a kick/punt and force a turnover

In other words...not happening.

I'll actually go against the grain. Dolphins are 7 1/2 point underdogs at home, 10 out of 10 local writers picked the Pats to win and 8 picked them to cover, and absolutely no one thinks we can win this game.

So....I'm picking Miami. New England's pass defense is awful, and I think Tanny can continue last week's fourth quarter momentum against a team that is allowing a 93.0 rating to opposing QB's and 7.9 per pass play (only 3 NFL teams are worse).

Also Pats having to sit for 10 days after the takedown of the Jests isn't necessarily a good thing. They're due to come up snake eyes, and I think it happens Sunday.

Miami 27, New England 24.

Well, that's subjective. Yards allowed may be awful, but the only division leader in the NFL that has allowed fewer points is Baltimore. Plus, the Pats' D is 6th in the NFL with 14 INTs and 1st in the NFL in both forced fumbles (24) and fumbles recovered (18). They are also 2nd in the league in defensive TDs scored, with 5. So, they may allow completions and yards...but they force a shitload of turnovers, score TDs and don't allow many points.

Add in the fact that the Pats' offense is #1 in the entire NFL in points scored (by a huge margin), and I give the Dolphins roughly a snowball's chance in hell of winning this game.

Beating the Dolphins in this game will shove our very slim playoff chances into the toilet. Bellichick loves these kinds of game. I wouldn't be surprised if he tries to hang 100 points on our pass defense.

I see how we can win, but I don't see how we can actually do what we need to in order to win.

I'll say, NE 49 Mia 20

I knew the Seahawk win was a fluke. And even then they lose if Earl Thomas keeps his feet.

So instead of 4-12 they'll finish 5-11. Yay. :roll: :roll: :roll:
