The Patriots will host the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football at 8:25 pm on CBS.
The Patriots will try to go to 7-0 with a win over Miami while Miami will try to improve to 4-3 on the season.
The Patriots will take an even bigger lead within their division if they can beat Miami tomorrow night.
Here are the three keys to a New England win.
1. Protect Tom Brady: Has to be key number one. It is the most important thing tomorrow night with Miami’s front seven, especially with a guy named Suh and Cameron Wake on that defensive line. The Pats will have a revolving rotation tomorrow and play rookies and practice squad guys. They have to play great, maybe the best they have played all season in order to keep their QB upright, and as we all know, if Brady is up and throwing, good things are happening.
2. Stop The Big Plays: The defense of the Patriots has to stop the big plays. Miami lives off of big plays, they score off of big plays. Sometimes it is a deep pass, sometimes it is a short pass that goes the distance after the catch, and sometimes it’s a punt or kick return. It’s a good chunk of their offense. If the Pats can keep away the big plays they should make life harder on the Dolphins defense. This time, and this game with these wide outs, they match up well for the Pats corners. They still have to stop Miami from throwing the deep passes, and if they can they should be fine.
3. Get Open Fast: This one is all on the wide receivers. If Brady is to get the ball out quickly, which has helped the OL recently, then the wide outs must continue to get open fast. So, if the wide outs can get open fast and make the catches, the offense should be able to move the football. This is a really big key for the Patriots offense tomorrow nigt.
