The 2013 NFL Draft will take place this week, so let’s take a look at which holes each team in the AFC East needs to fill to have a successful draft.
Donte’ Stallworth, free agent wide receiver for the New England Patriots, is in stable condition after reportedly being involved in a hot air balloon accident in Miami Saturday morning, several sources reported early Saturday afternoon.
After two days of free agency in the National Football League, some teams are starting to separate themselves as doing very well this offseason while others are struggling through what’s been called salary cap hell.
One major reason the New England Patriots received a bye into this weekend’s AFC divisional playoffs is their dominant performance in a rout of the Houston Texans last month.
By most predictions, the Miami Dolphins exceeded expectations in 2012. But, after getting mauled by the New England Patriots Sunday; the game showed just how far the Dolphins have to go before they can compete with the Pats.
The Miami Dolphins would love to avoid a fourth straight losing season and finish with a third consecutive victory. Coach Joe Philbin’s team has allowed 13 total points in its last two games, home victories over Jacksonville and Buffalo.
The Miami Dolphins are finishing their fourth straight non-playoff season. The New England Patriots have clinched their fourth consecutive AFC East title. So what’s there to play for in Sunday’s regular-season finale? Plenty, both teams say.
Should they or shouldn’t they? New England tight end Rob Gronkowski could be cleared to play in this weekend’s contest versus Miami, but the Patriots aren’t sure if they should let him play or wait and activate him in the postseason. Waiting could avoid re-aggravating the surgically repaired forearm which he fractured in Week 11.
New England will be looking for a second win against a Dolphins team they defeated by a touchdown in Week 13. The Dolphins, however, are seeking to best the AFC East division champs in order to end their season on a positive note.
The Miami Dolphins will look to avoid a fourth consecutive losing season on Sunday against the AFC East’s best team, the New England Patriots.
