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.
So much for the Patriots’ problems. Rebounding from a rare slump, Tom Brady and his teammates earned a playoff bye with a 28-0 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday after two mediocre performances.
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 Dolphins don’t have any major injury concerns heading into Sunday’s AFC East showdown while the absence of a few New England players could affect the outcome of the game.
Miami will have to use everything in its arsenal if it hopes to beat the New England Patriots in their AFC East clash on Sunday afternoon.
The reigning AFC East champions started with a victory for the eighth consecutive season Monday night by beating the Miami Dolphins 38-24.
