Some people think this will be a close game. Me? Not so much. I'm going Patriots 35, Dolphins 17.
Even though the "Sparano factor" (ie, that Bellichick would always find ways to beat the guy who embarrassed him) is no more - I still think the Patriots will find ways to shut down Miami's run game, and contain the pass. Meanwhile Brady will have his usual kind of day. I see Gronkowski and Hernandez coming in with about 10 passes each.

Why bring this up? On any given Sunday ANY team in the nfl can beat any other team in the nfl.
Miami beat the chiefs and the raiders. The raiders were killed by the packers. The chiefs beat the packers.
Does that mean Miami is as good as the packers? Of course not. But if they played them maybe they could beat them. Then again, play them 10 times, and the packers would surely win 8.

Several of the players on that 72 team told me that they think the feat will never be matched; maybe they are right.
Kudos to that truly special and unique team, and a pox on you that deny them their place as one of the - if not the - best teams ever.
It's hard to believe that nearly 40 years have passed; and this dolphins team feels like its in an alternate universe rather than being connected to "greatness"
> Why do they call it a "touchdown" when - as evidenced at the end of Reggie's fine 76 yard run today against the Bills, he "touched down" in the end zone and was called for an unsportsmanlike for going to ground. Isn't what he did the personification of the name of the score?? Should we start calling it "ball in the general vicinity yet above the ground and in no way down..." ???
> So Wanker nomination for whoever made the rule that actually "touching down" in a touchdown, was against the rules!!!!!!!
> Other wanker!
And thus preserveth the legacy of the 72 fins.
In other news, your current dolphins won. Believe what you want, but this game was won because the bills were inept whenever it mattered.
