Ryan Tannehill had his first career comeback win last week against Seattle. He will be walking into his house looking to stay tied for the last wild card spot(I am predicting a Steelers loss). Considering where they expected to be half way thru at the beginning of the year, a win would be an amazing feat.
Brady and Tannehill are a lot alike and so are their secondaries. They can sling it down the field and bullet it up the center. Tannehill does not have the weapons that Brady does, but as I have been saying all year, no one needs weapons against this Pats defense and Russell Wilson showed it a few weeks back.
Bess is probable for the 1:00 pm game on CBS and that could be a do or die for the Dolphins. He has been having a way above average year and, if he plays, he will have a big game. Start him if he is on your fantasy team, and, if this is a do or die week, go pick him up to start.
Reggie Bush is probably another player that many people are considering starting on their fantasy team this week. Well, Bess is going to have a bigger game than Bush. The Pats did struggle with Spiller, but he is built much different from Bush. Many would say that the Pats struggle with fast backs, I say they struggle with small ones. Bush is big and quick, but this is the best rushing defense in the NFL and no one seems to know it. If Bush has a good game, it will come through catches not carries.
Welker too will have his fair share of catches. He averages over a hundred yards against his former team and that will increase this week. Brady is going to have a career game. The Miami defense is better than last year, but they are still awful. No one can stop Gronk, Welker, or Woodhead and Ridley for that matter. The Pats are averaging 55 points in their last two games and this will continue.
Luckily, for the Dolphins, the Steelers are going to lose this week, as well as Tennessee, and it is looking more and more like the last wild card spot will be given to a five hundred team(as well as that the Colts and Denver are on a collision course). So, even after Miami loses, they will still be in the hunt. Final is a Pats win, 50-24.
Brady is going to continue his consecutive TD streak, Brees stopped his last night
Welker will come close to 200 yards
The Pats run defense will keep yardage under 80
The Pats are only losing one more game this year, to Houston, and will get that bye
