New England Patriots Postseaon: NFL Announces Date, Time for Divisional Round Game

It all seems so inevitable, and why shouldn't it? But the mitigating factor is "when" the Patriots will face those good offenses. They may be the best team in the NFL.

If the Dolphins win, they'll play at New England the weekend of January 14-15.

Tom Brady, Patriots - Even with missing the first four games of the season due to suspension, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has a strong case for NFL MVP.

"Fourteen wins is a pretty good effort this year".

The Dolphins headed into Sunday's game with a chance to move up to the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs, with a win and a Chiefs loss to San Diego. The Patriots also completed their 10th season sweep of Miami in the rivalry's 50-year history.

GARDENS-The Dolphins wrap up the regular season today at home against New England, and playoff seeding is on the line. Patriots' Pro-Bowl safety Devin McCourty stripped the ball.

After receiving the opening kickoff, Brady led the Patriots on a 13 play drive concluding with a touchdown pass to Martellus Bennett in the back of the end zone to put the Patriots up 7-0 after a Gostkowski extra point. McClellin returned it 69 yards down the right sideline before being wrestled out of bounds at the Miami 18. After Edelman caught the Tom Brady thrown dime, he slanted inside. "A turnover just changes the game".

Trey Flowers continues to be one of the most dominant defenders the Patriots have on their roster.

Michael Floyd - Michael Floyd has had a tumultuous 2016 season.

Floyd had been something of a major question mark since the Patriots claimed him off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals last month, especially with the wider receiver coming off charges of a second DUI.

Aside from it being former head coach Jack Del Rio, if McGloin can play, Jaguars fans need to watch - he could be a free agent of interest for this team.

Brady hit newly acquired Michael Floyd who scored a 14-yard touchdown. Floyd had a 14-yard touchdown catch, and a crushing downfield block that sprang Julian Edelman on a 77-yard touchdown reception.

The Dolphins were the latest team that couldn't take advantage. New England's victory also means the Fins will remain in the sixth seed in the AFC standings and, thus, will visit the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card Round of the 2016 National Football League playoffs.

More than the box score, Edelman and his attitude gave the Patriots a spark in this game that carried them through the Dolphins comeback attempt.

Kelly said he has visited Belichick and the Patriots in the offseason when he was coach of the Philadelphia Eagles and the 49ers over the years. "But we've got to keep grinding, keep getting better". "We got contributions from all three phases, a lot of different guys, a lot of guys stepped up".
