This is as sacrilegious to say as it is obvious: The Dolphins will have more talent on the field Sunday than the depleted, suddenly vulnerable Patriots. But maybe that won't matter again.
Maybe champion coach Bill Belichick sprinkles magic like he did...

MIAMI GARDENS — So here's the thing about the Dolphins' fifth preseason game. It's meaningless. You know that. It's only importance was one starter played – right guard John Jerry – and so no one got hurt Thursday night.
You know that,...

Here is the type of December day we're supposed to have with the Dolphins and Patriots. Here is the kind of late-season game full of playoff meaning you want when the schedule first comes out.
This wasn't supposed to remain as easy as the Patriots...

1. Texans (1 last week): We will find out all we need to know about this team Monday night when they visit the Patriots.
2. Broncos (4): As if having Peyton Manning doesn't give them enough of an offensive advantage, now they have Mitch Unrein too.
