Here's how ESPNBoston.com's experts see Sunday's New England Patriots-Miami Dolphins game (1 p.m. ET, CBS) playing out. What's your prediction? Leave your pick in the comments section.
|PATRIOTS 28, DOLPHINS 27
The Patriots' offense will go up-tempo. We might even see the up-tempo run game. Shane Vereen will have a big game and the Patriots will clinch the AFC East title and get those hats and T-shirts.
|PATRIOTS 23, DOLPHINS 20
I think the Patriots find success with the up-tempo offensive approach. The receivers will need to come up big, the protection must hold up, and the defense needs to create turnovers.
|PATRIOTS 27, DOLPHINS 21
It won't be easy, but the Patriots will prevail over the Dolphins and capture their fifth AFC East title in as many seasons. The win will also mean they'll clinch the division for the second straight year in Miami. Count on Danny Amendola to step up his play as the team moves on with Rob Gronkowski on injured reserve.
