Brady and the Pats Face Tough Test in Miami
By Tristian Deschenes 12/08/2018
If there is one place that the New England Patriots and Tom Brady do not want to play, its Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. In Tom Brady’s last 5 games in Miami he has a record of 1-4 and is only averaging 251 yards per game. For his career Brady has a 7-9 record when facing the Dolphins on the road.
On top of the Patriots struggles in Miami, the Dolphins are a great home team, sitting at 5-1 at home this season. “I just think playing down there has its challenges,” Brady said. “Every team has its challenges going down there.”
Ultimately, Brady said that no matter what the conditions are it comes down to playing good football,
“The opponent is the Dolphins, not the climate. Playing a good football game is definitely what this week is about for us. We can’t expect to go out there and play less than our best and win. We should be playing our best — it’s that time of year.
It is a big game for both teams, the 9-3 Patriots can extend their own NFL record and clinch their tenth consecutive AFC East title, and the Dolphins have a chance to better their position for wild card spot if they can improve to 7-6. In their matchup earlier this season at Gillette Stadium, the Patriots beat the Dolphins by a score of 38-7.
