Monday December 28th, 2015

The New England Patriots, still in line for the No. 1 seed in the AFC, need a win on Sunday over the Miami Dolphins to clinch the spot. They’re hoping to rebound from a 26–20 overtime road loss to the New York Jets, in which quarterback Tom Brady threw for just 231 yards and a touchdown with an interception.

The Dolphins have lost five of six and are aiming to finish the year at 6–10 with a win over the Patriots. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill is dealing with an injured leg, and linebacker Jelani Jenkins has been nursing his ankle.
