Week 14 vs. Cleveland Browns:

Cleveland is a young team that is improving on both sides of the ball and has some interesting young playmakers like wide receivers Josh Gordon and Greg Little and running back Trent Richardson. That said, Cleveland may want to blame the schedule makers who put them behind Houston. With the season winding down and back-to-back tough games, expect quarterback Tom Brady and the Patriots to take out their frustrations on the young Browns and give them a lesson in dominant offenses in the NFL.  With ten wins, the Patriots lock up the AFC East in week fourteen and turn their attention to home field advantage in the playoffs.

Prediction: Patriots 41 – Cleveland 9 Record: 10-3.

Week 15 at Miami Dolphins:

Another year, another game at the end of the season with Miami looking up at the Patriots in the standings. The Dolphins went into 2013 with a ton of hype after an offseason of wheeling and dealing, releases and trades, big money free agents and trading up in the draft. Unfortunately, the song remains the same as the Patriots are in South Beach playing for playoff seeding. With the excessive money paid to wide receiver Mike Wallace and lacking playmaker Reggie Bush who they let leave in free agency, the Dolphins could be closing out the season with yet another uninspiring finish and dreams of next year.

Prediction: Patriots 24 – Miami 7 Record: 11-3.

    I think the Pats will lose to Atlanta in a closer game maybe by 6 or 7 points. They travel to Cincinnati and play against a defense that may be stronger than Atlanta’s and lose in a close game, by three. Pats come home and beat the Saints in a shootout, Pats come out on top because of a better defense. I do not think the Pats run the table in the AFC east. They lose to the Dolphins at Miami. The rest looks about right. I have them winning the AFC east with an 11-5 record.

    I like your picks Hal. In my game predictions I had the Pats going 11-5 with losses to Cincy, Atlanta, Miami, Denver, and Baltimore. But you make a very good case for 12-4. Like Paul, I don’t think the Pats will go 6-0 in the AFC East, but never the less, I think we all agree a solid season is in the Patriots future.
