The New England Patriots' 2016 Regular Season in review

Tom Brady passed for 276 yards and three touchdowns as the New England Patriots clinched home field throughout the AFC playoffs, beating the Miami Dolphins 35-14 on Sunday afternoon at Hard Rock Stadium. Brady was suspended for four games to begin the year, but ended up with one of the finer seasons in National Football League history for a QB. "Nobody's asking questions about my past, just very welcoming and I'm glad that I'm here".

Running back Ezekiel Elliott was benched and fellow Dallas rookie Dak Prescott started but quarterbacked only the first two Cowboys' possessions. During the seven-game win streak to end the season, coach Bill Belichick had to overcome just one playoff team: the Dolphins in the last regular-season game of the season.

During the Patriots' season finale against the Dolphins on Sunday, fans started chanting "M-V-P" at Brady while he was on the field, which is only notable because the game was being played in Miami Gardens where the Patriots are a hated division rival.

The Jaguars (3-13) thought they had pulled it out on Jason Myers' 41-yard field goal with 1:33 remaining. Then he connected with recent waiver wire pick-up Michael Floyd, who had to fight his way to the end zone to make it 14-0. The other, perhaps more realistic thesis, is to simply beckon the Patriots' impending and swift stiff arm in anticipation of seeing what NFC team awaits them in Houston.

After seeing how Floyd blew up the Miami secondary yesterday with his sheer power and will, providing a physical Rob Gronkowski-like presence at the receiver position, and knowing what that could mean for Tom Brady in the postseason, we'll guess the reaction goes something like: "Are you kidding me?"

Obama administration to retaliate for suspected Russian meddling into election
The US could use the order against Moscow by declaring the electoral systems as part of the "critical infrastructure" of the US. Intelligence officials believed Russian Federation was involved in the hacking of Democratic servers last summer.

Miami Dolphins backup quarterback Matt Moore has won two consecutive games as a starter.

"We didn't get the result we wanted today, but we get the opportunity to keep playing", said Ajayi post-game.

It was a great Sunday afternoon for the New England Patriots.

Now, the Patriots will have a few weeks off to prepare for the AFC Divisional Round. New England RB LeGarrette Blount (Oregon), S Patrick Chung (Oregon), P Ryan Allen (West Salem High School). As Edelman accelerated near midfield, Floyd came out of nowhere to put a devastating block on Miami cornerback Tony Lippett and free Edelman to complete the 77-yard scoring play. In his first major action since joining the team, Floyd made a massive contribution.

There is a precedent there from Miami's disgusting 38-6 loss at Baltimore on December 4, followed one week later by a gritty 26-23 win over Arizona. Their next game will come against either the Miami Dolphins or the victor of the Houston vs Oakland/Kansas City game. New England is firing on all cylinders, and its top competition will be without its starting quarterback after Oakland Raiders star Derek Carr suffered a broken fibula in Week 16. And you know what?
