As the season enters a new phase, the Patriots enter the final stretch starting off with the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins, 5-9, enter this game with the hopes of messing up the Patriots #1 seed hopes while the Patriots just need to win the next few games to keep the seed.

The Dolphins are lead by journey man Matt Moore and running back Reggie Bush who combined have put up decent numbers. Don’t let their record fool you though, this Dolphins team is vastly improved since Chad Henne was starting quarterback.
