    Anyone Else Glad The Bills Beat Miami?

    One more loss in the Dophins L column. Hope the division teams continue to beat each other up.

    Miami is the last possible impediment to New England taking the division crown.  Hanging a division loss on them guarantees that if New England splits the head-to-head games, New England will have a better divisional record.  So, Miami is down three games in the loss column and needs to either beat New England twice (including in Foxboro on the coldest day of the regular season) and then gain another game somehow, or else Miami needs to somehow get one game up in the loss column. 

    The Bills already lost their head to head tiebreaker and simply need to gain four games.  The Jets are way down in the same divisional tiebreaker hole at this point.  Even if they can salvage a split with New England, they still lose out. 

    At some point, sub-par teams give up on any hope of a wild card.  They simply want to maximize their win totals.  Such teams concentrate on beating the other bad teams, and are easier pickings for the good teams.  The Patriots have to play the Dolphins at least once, probably twice if they haven't yet clinched home field advantage or a bye.

    which is why I'm glad they lost vs. Bills.  The Dolphins may not score many points, but their defense is still pretty good.  If they had won AND found a way to beat the Patriots twice...and win the rest of their games - I don't know who would've ended up winning the tie-breakers....Patriots because of more conference wins or the Dolphins because of head to head?....guess it doesn't matter at this point.

    Yeh, but.. notice the "vaunted" Bills offense could only muster 4 field goals against the Miami D?  What does that say about the Pats D, huh?

    Brady sucks for not scoring 41.
