New England Patriots -5.5

New England has a shot at the AFC East title. If the Patriots can win and Buffalo losses then New England would win the division while Miami has been eliminated from postseason contention and can only act as a spoiler. However, the Dolphins will have a difficult time finding any real reason to play extra hard on Sunday. In addition, New England will be looking to avenge its Week 1 17-16 loss to Miami. Final Score Prediction, New England Patriots win and cover ATS 27-17.
