The silence is deafening from both teams ...I can hear it.
Philbin realizes we have a small shot at the playoff's and this is a great test for Miami late in the year against against the best in our division.
Belichick knows he can knock Miami out with a win and win the division at the same time.They know that they got the division but they are also battling for the second seed in the playoffs and a loss will hurt them and and all teams love playing at home in the playoffs.
Sorry folks this game has shootout written all over it. I'm not saying this is what Miami wants but its what New England does want. Belichick is no dummy.He does not want a defensive low scoring game going into the mid 3rd quarter,it favors Miami.The pats arent really putting up much points in the fourth quarter either.
Miami is stout against the run, New England is also.Pats know they need to put up points and take the lead figuring we cant keep up and Belichick figures Tanny loses the duel of QB's.Yeah on both teams the special teams is a bonus and turnovers by either side will be huge.
Miami wants to run the ball and control the clock and game.
Pats want a shootout!
Its cool knowing we are going into the 13 game with a small shot at the playoffs.
