ICYMI Patriots vs Dolphins: Best (And Worst) of Patriots Social Media Week 17Andrew Innerarity - USA TODAY Sports

The Weekend began with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady posting a Winter Classic Bruins tribute to his personal Facebook page. He joked around with Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask by photo-shopping his face onto a picture of Rask in his equipment.

Thanks Tuukka for featuring me on your mask today! In your honor, I'll be rocking your pads this Sunday in Miami. Happy new year and go Bruins! #WinterClassic

Wide receiver Brandon LaFell took advantage of the location of the final game, bringing his family to the beach for the holiday weekend.

In their season finale, the Miami Dolphins sported their rather bright “aqua” colored jerseys.

Running back Stephen Jackson pulled a page out of former Boston Celtic Kevin Garnetts book with a rather vicious pregame routine at the goal post.

Pink Stripes sighting!

Dolphins Hall of Fame Head Coach Don Shula gets the royal treatment in Miami.

Sigh of relief.

With the game underway, it proved to be an offensive struggle for both franchises, with the score remaining 3-0 Dolphins into the second quarter when defensive end Ndamukong Suh had this ferocious low hit on Tom Brady that nearly sent Patriots fans everywhere into a coma. Following the game, Brady was diagnosed with a sprained ankle.

It was a long afternoon for TB12.

Steven Jackson scored his first touchdown as a member of the Patriots.

With the game tied at 10 late in the fourth quarter, Dolphin wide receiver DeVante Parker made this ridiculous catch to get his team within striking distance of a fourth quarter go ahead score.

A few plays later Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill found tight end Jordan Cameron to take a 17-10 touchdown lead with 6:58 to go in the game.

After a few more tough hits on Tom Brady he was relived for backup Jimmy Garoppolo the Patriots decided to throw in the towel and prefer full health going into the playoffs.

The Patriots concluded the 2015 season with a 17-10 defeat and a final record of 12-4, losing four of their final six games.

Patriots players following the game made sure to tweet optimism towards the panicking fanbase.

But the local media will be in full “worry mode” for the next two weeks.

The Patriots will have a much needed bye week to get healthy before the AFC Divisional Round of the playoffs. The schedule was announced following the conclusion of the Sunday Night Football match up between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Backers.

On his weekly Monday Morning interview with WEEI radio’s Dennis and Callahan program, Tom Brady vowed to his fans and the NFL, “We’ll be a different team in two weeks.” A link to the full interview HERE.
