Dolphins at Patriots
8:25 p.m. Line: Patriots by 7.5.
Ryan Tannehill (MIA) — The Patriots surrendered an average of 303.5 passing yards and 32 rushing yards and five total touchdowns to Andrew Luck and Ryan Fitzpatrick over the last two weeks. Over all, they are permitting 19 F.P.P.G. a week to the position. This is a plus matchup.
Tom Brady (NE) — Miami served up plenty of garbage-time points to Brian Hoyer last week (273 yards, three TDs, 20 F.P.s), but played well over all in the previous two contests. It has yielded only 16 F.P.P.G., but Brady is matchup-proof.
