1. Patriots won’t allow a touchdown

For the third time this season, the Patriots won’t allow their opponent to reach the end zone at all (the other times were against the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans). This isn’t out of the question by any means, considering that the Dolphins only registered seven points against the Patriots in the foes’ first meeting this season.

The Dolphins are one of the worst scoring teams in the entire NFL. They average just 19.3 points per game, the sixth-fewest among the 32 squads. Against the Patriots, they will only be able to score as many points as Andrew Franks can boot with his right foot.

So there you have it. A big day on the ground thanks by way of Jackson and 350 passing yards from Brady’s right arm will power the offense to a bunch of points. On the other side of the ball, Jones’ constant pressure and Butler’s pick six will keep the Dolphins at bay.
