The Patriots wrapped up a week of preparation for the Miami Dolphins today, and as quarterback Tom Brady so eloquently states in a recent Facebook post, “it was a solid week of practice, who’s looking forward to Sunday?”. I think that this displays the focus and excitement that this Patriots team has towards this week’s contest, as anytime you welcome a divisional opponent to your stadium, it is an important tilt.

It was a positive week on the injury front for New England, as they saw two key players return to the practice field. Aqib Talib and Danny Amendola are both listed as ‘questionable’ on this week’s injury report, which I can only take away as good news after they missed last week’s game in New York. Obviously this is no guarantee that they will play on Sunday, but it definitely is a good sign.

The big news of the week is probably the addition of Brady to the injury report, with the Patriots listing him as ‘probable’ with a shoulder injury. This is probably nothing more than a little soreness in his throwing arm, but it momentarily sent ‘Patriots Nation’ up in a frenzy. I full expect Brady to be out there giving 100% for his team this Sunday, hopefully coming out with the victory.
