Prediction: Patriots 24, Dolphins 23
Comment: Strange to say, the Dolphins match up well with the Patriots' injury-riddled defense and offense-in-flux. If it was in the South Florida sun, I'd pick them. As it is, this will be...

BOSTON - Things were all good just two quarters ago.
That was before Dolphins fans knew the outcome of Sunday's 27-17 second-half meltdown to the New England Patriots.

The formula for the Miami Dolphins to make it to the playoffs has finally been simplified.
Nevermind what the Baltimore Ravens or any other team in the AFC does because none of that truly matters now that the Dolphins (8-6) control their own destiny....

The Miami Dolphins beat the New England Patriots on Sunday for the first time in the last eight tries.
That prompted high-fives in Denver, high anxiety in San Diego . . . and an extremely low word count in Tom Brady's postgame news conference.

This Sunday, in this city, we finally get some clarity. If the Dolphins win, they advance to the final stretch run against the three AFC East teams with a legitimate chance for the playoffs.
If they lose, it suggests they're the same old re-run we've...

MIAMI GARDENS - I've been covering the Miami Dolphins since 2007 and I've never seen a more confident Dolphins squad heading into a Patriots game.
Not the 2008 season when Miami dethroned the Tom Brady-less Patriots and won the AFC East division....

Here is the type of December day we're supposed to have with the Dolphins and Patriots. Here is the kind of late-season game full of playoff meaning you want when the schedule first comes out.
