Week 8 vs. Dolphins

It’s hard for me to come up with logical reasons for the Patriots to lose to Miami AT HOME, but New England always serves up at least one division stinker every year, so I figured coming off of short rest against a physical Jets team might be the time for them to lose an easy one. Miami has a solid defensive front that can get after Brady, and their secondary can be good at times as well.

I don’t trust Ryan Tannehill one bit, but I could see him taking advantage of a sloppy Patriots team, and doing just enough to get Miami a victory. The Dolphins’ offensive line is shaky, but with some help, they might be able to shore up a little bit in 2015.

Chalk this one up as a let-down for the Pats, and a turnover-filled day costs them the undefeated season.

Score: Dolphins 20-17
