A victory by the Patriots can lock up the first seed and homefield advantage, so you can be certain that head coach Bill Belichick will be aiming for a win in Miami. The Patriots have typically struggled in Miami (at least more than in other venues) due to the weather. Quarterback Tom Brady has just a 6-7 overall record in Miami.
Former Dolphins linebacker Jonathan Freeny might not play due to a hand injury, but former Dolphins defensive end Rob Ninkovich will hopefully be ready to play. The Patriots tight ends coach Brian Daboll and offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo served as coaches for Miami in the past.
