Bing Predicts NFL Week 14

Stacker Logo By Nick Bornheimer of Stacker | Slide 2 of 31: New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins

Game time: Sunday, Dec. 9, 1 p.m. EST

Historical matchup: Miami Dolphins lead series 54-52-0

It’s an all too familiar scenario for the Miami Dolphins—looking up at the top of the AFC East and seeing the Patriots in the division’s driver’s seat. Despite being three games behind New England, Miami has plenty to play for Sunday. As one of four teams sitting at 6-6 and contending for a wild-card berth in the AFC, Miami owns the tiebreaker over both the Colts and Broncos, which means if they can catch the Ravens, who are one game ahead, they could be playing into January. 

A win won’t come easy, though. The Patriots have seemingly brushed off their blowout loss to the Titans three weeks ago and have strung together consecutive 14-point wins over the Jets and Vikings. 

Tom Brady was particularly heartened by their defensive performance against Minnesota last week. The bad news for AFC contenders is that home field advantage isn’t out of the picture for New England as their 9-3 record has them chasing the 10-2 Chiefs, but the Patriots own the head-to-head tiebreaker thanks to a thrilling 43-40 win over Kansas City earlier this season.
