The New England Patriots face the division rival Miami Dolphins in Week 13, with both teams coming off a win. The difference is that Miami was snapping a three-game losing streak, while New England was winning their fifth-consecutive game.
Tom Brady and the New England offense have been on a roll, scoring at least 45 points in three of their last four games, including hanging 59 points on the Indianapolis Colts. Brady hasn't thrown an interception since Week 8, which is bad news for the Miami defense. The Dolphins are giving up an average of 261.7 passing yards per game, 26th in the league.
New England's defense is actually worse against the pass, ranked 29th and yielding an average of 289.4 yards per game. That hasn't hurt them much, given their top-ranked offense, but it might mean Ryan Tannehill will have a chance to set his feet and Miami may put up a fight. There's a difference between putting up a fight and keeping pace with Tom Brady, though, and Tannehill will have his work cut out for him.
