3. Tom Brady will throw for 350 yards

Just like the secondary is due for a pick-six, Brady is due for a big game passing the ball. While he’s still the NFL leader in passing yards with 4,636, it’s been a month since Brady has eclipsed the 300-yard mark.

Against the Dolphins’ pass defense, which ranks a pedestrian 24th in terms of total passing yards allowed, Brady will have a field day. Especially if he has trusted target Julian Edelman back in the fold, Brady will completely undress the Dolphins’ secondary.

4 positives from loss to Jets

As it so happens, the last time Brady surpassed the 350-yard mark was on October 29th—against the Dolphins. You see where this line of reasoning originates from.

Brady and the offense will treat this game as a dress rehearsal for the playoffs, executing the game plan on the dime while padding the stat sheets a bit.
