Pats Pulpit Podcast Episode 015: Taking down the Jets and the Short Week Against the Dolphins

New, comments

Can the Patriots continue their streak of quality performances against the Miami Dolphins?

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots are coming off a fantastic victory against the New York Jets and will try to extend their division lead with a win over the Miami Dolphins. Alec was at the game in the nosebleeds and the guy he sat next to was thrown out of the stadium. You need to listen to this.

The Jets were hampered by Chris Ivory's hamstring injury, so their running back was at half speed. The Patriots were missing half of their starting offensive line, with just their center in their regular position, they were missing their running back, their key pass rusher, and they're making up for a loss of their #2 cornerback. Oh, and their receivers dropped 10 passes. And the Patriots still won. Handily. Everything turned up for the Jets, but New England still won.

That's how good this team is. Can they win a big Thursday Night Football match-up against the Dolphins?
