Not much to talk about for this game. The Patriots are playing at home hosting the Miami Dolphins for the last game of the regular season. The Patriots have already locked up the top seed in the AFC and have clinched home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Dolphins have already been eliminated from the playoffs, so in a sense this is pretty much a meaningless game. I expect the Patriots to rest many of their starters for this game since there is absolutely no reason to play them. I can see many of the 1st-team guys start the game, but chances are will only play for one series. Neither team wants to lose their last game of the season, but even with that said, this probably will not be too exciting of a game. The Dolphins have not been playing too well and do not have a lot going for them. They have dealt with injuries all season long and are battling a few today. Even with a lot of the starters sitting, I actually still see the Patriots edging this one out 17-14.
