The final week of football will see the Miami Dolphins face off against the team they played in week one. Division rival New England.
The Patriots have won, as of week 14, six games in a row and are one game away from 10 wins. Entering the final four weeks, the Patriots are going to face some tough teams including the Dolphins. While it is not likely that Miami is going to be facing a Patriots team with their backs against the playoff wall, they could be in a position to change the entire seeding of the AFC.
If there is one thing we know it’s that the Patriots don’t play as well in South Florida and the Dolphins can beat them. Brian Flores knows his old team well and while the Patriots offense is methodical, they are not a team that can rely solely on Mac Jones and a running game. The Dolphins will probably attack the Patriots offense to force Mac Jones to beat them with his arm.
Where Miami will run into problems is when they have the ball. The Patriots defense is really good and they are well coached and disciplined. Miami will need to come up with an exceptional game plan to move the ball. In week one they scored only 17 points, they will need to score more to beat the Patriots this time around. How much more will depend on the Dolphins defense.
While Miami may find themselves eliminated by the time this game rolls around, I think the Dolphins will win and finish the final four games 3-1 but missing the playoffs.
