New England Patriots
The New England Patriots are just a shell of their former selves. Cam Newton has become irrelevant in the league that fast and he is not considered a top-tier quarterback already since he has become very inconsistent. Their record is now at 6-7 and they are now the 10th ranked team in the American Football Conference. This team failed to get into a winning record during NFL Week 14 and that sets them back big time. They just scored a dismal three points against the Los Angeles Rams and it was a far performance from the 45-point shutout against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Players to watch: C. Newton QB (GP 12 CMP 199 ATT 301 CMP% 66.1 YDS 2172 AVG 7.2 YDS/G 219.9 LNG 50 TD 5 INT 10 SACK 23 SYL 129 RTG 78.9), D. Harris RB (GP 10 ATT 137 YDS 691 AVG 5 LNG 41 BIG 4 TD 2 YDS/G 69.1 FUM 1 LST 0 FD 30), D. Byrd WR (GP 13 REC 42 TGTS 67 YDS 566 AVG 13.5 TD 1 LNG 42 BIG 9 YDS/G 43.5 FUM 1 LST 0 YAC 150 FD 28).
The Miami Dolphins failed to enter the triple-tie of for the last spots of the American Football Conference. They are now outside looking in the playoff picture as the seventh-best team in the AFC. Their record is now at 8-5 and tied with the Baltimore Ravens. This team had to face a brick wall in NFL Week 14 as they were paired up with the defending champions Kansas City Chiefs. This team managed to keep it close and just lost by six points. Tua Tagovailoa did what he can but the Chiefs were too strong. They will still have the Las Vegas Raiders and Buffalo Bills to battle with after this week.
