Patriots vs. Dolphins: Bold Predictions for Week New England's Week 13 Game

Jim Rogash

With the AFC East divisional title on the line, let's take a look at my bold predictions for New England's Week 13 game against the Miami Dolphins.

With a win against the Miami Dolphins, the New England Patriots will not only improve to 9-3 on the season, but they'll clinch the AFC East divisional crown.

Granted, the Dolphins might be a 5-6 football team with a rookie quarterback, but they're still a dangerous team that always puts up a fight against their divisional rivals.

As the game is just hours away, let's take a look at my bold predictions for New England's Week 13 game in Miami against the Dolphins.

1. Tom Brady will throw for at least four touchdowns

As of late, Tom Brady and New England's offense has been on fire as they're averaging 47.5 points per-game in their last four games. With that being said, I don't see Miami's 21st ranked defense stopping the NFL's most high-powered offensive attack.

Brady has thrown for 24 touchdowns on the year while posting a 105.2 passer rating and I see him having yet another outstanding game against the Dolphins.

2. Ryan Tannehill will be intercepted three times

Believe it or not, but I actually have some faith in New England's defense entering Week 13—especially against a rookie quarterback.

Ryan Tannehill has been picked off 12 time on the season and I do see him struggling against Bill Belichick and his defense.

Let's just say Sunday will be a very rough day for Tannehill.

3. Stevan Ridley will rush for 100-plus yards

This is probably the boldest prediction of them all as Miami is currently the seventh best run-defense in the NFL entering Week 13—but that wont stop New England's dominant offensive line and their young stud running back, Stevan Ridley.

Ridley is the NFL's seventh leading rusher as he's racked up 939 yards while averaging 4.6 yards per-carry with eight rushing touchdowns on the season.

The second-year running back out of LSU will prove that he's one of the league's top running backs by dominating the league's seventh best run-defense.

4. Reggie Bush wont surpass 30 yards rushing

For starters, I think Reggie Bush is a fraud and is a complete waste of talent—he's just not a legitimate NFL running back.

With that being said, I don't see having any success against the Patriots.

Bush is averaging just 60.2 yards per-game this season and I don't see him coming close to that at all against New England.

I honestly think he'll struggle coming close to 30 rushing yards.

Final prediction: New England: 42 Miami: 13

Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and the Patriots playing against a divisional rival with a rookie quarterback? I think that translate into a blowout.

This game is not going to be close at all, especially with the AFC East title on the line.

The red-hot Patriots will storm into Miami and take care of business with yet another 40-plus point performance.
