Week 17 so you can be certain that head coach Bill Belichick will be aiming for a win in Miami. The Patriots have typically struggled in Miami (at least more than in other venues) due to the weather. Quarterback Tom Brady has just a 6-7 overall record in Miami.
Patriots vs Dolphins the Patriots are looking for their 6th franchise #1 seed in the AFC, which would tie the Pittsburgh Steelers for 3rd most in NFL history. The 49ers (8 times) and Broncos (7 times) lead the rankings.
Former Dolphins linebacker Jonathan Freeny might not play due to a hand injury, but former Dolphins defensive end Rob Ninkovich will hopefully be ready to play. The Patriots tight ends coach Brian Daboll and offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo served as coaches for Miami in the past.
The Boston Celtics will ring in the New Year with a double dip against one of the worst teams in the NBA. The Celtics will play host Saturday afternoon to the Brooklyn Nets at TD Garden before traveling to Brooklyn to play them again Monday.
