Week 17: New England Patriots 35, Miami Dolphins 14 (14-2) (Sunday, January 1, 2017)

Miami is typically a difficult place for the Patriots to play as Denver is, but this year the Pats beat the Broncos in Denver and did the same to the Dolphins in Miami. The game started out well for the Patriots, and it looked like the game was going to be a blow-out. The Dolphins did creep to within one possession, but the Pats pulled away and were off to the races despite stalling more than once in the red zone and settling for field goals, otherwise the score would have been far greater for New England.

Tom Brady was sharp, and new pick-up Michael Floyd scored a touchdown in which he dragged four defenders with him over the goal line, and threw a crushing block to spring Julian Edelman for a 77-yard TD run. LeGarrett Blount scored his 18th rushing touchdown, and Tom Brady finished with 28 TDs to 2 INTs, a ratio that set a record. There were other outstanding plays and the offense and defense did their jobs, including the defense creating turnovers (one fumble scoop-and-run went for 69 yards, a franchise record). Special teams did well with the exception of a 55-yard field goal attempt going awry, but in Gostkowski's defense, the field in Miami was simply awful. Players were losing their footing throughout the game. It was a miracle no one got hurt!

The Pats ended up 14-2 for the 2016 season and clinching the No. 1 seed in the playoffs. This means that they have Home Field Advantage (HFA) throughout the playoffs.

The NFL's system is fairly simple: 12 of 32 teams get into the playoffs. The NFL is divided into two conferences: the National Football Conference and the American Football Conference. Four divisions are in each conference. Each conference sends the 4 division winners and 2 wild card teams to the 'Tournament'. Wild Card Weekend features all wild card teams versus division winners, with 2 division winners from each conference sitting out that weekend (best records prevail). Then Divisional Weekend sees the WC survivors meet the top division winners, and Championship Weekend sees 2 teams from each conference compete for the right to go to the Super Bowl. The Pats, if they survive Divisional Weekend, host the AFC Championship Game in Foxboro. Whoo hoo! :)

The Pats will play Miami if they beat Pittsburgh, otherwise they have to play whoever wins in the Oakland/Houston game.

The division ended up with the Pats winning in Week 17 over the Dolphins and the Jets winning over the Bills.

NE 14-2 (Division Winner & No. 1 Seed)
Miami 10-6 (Wild Card Team & No. 6 Seed)

Week 16: New England Patriots 41, New York Jets 3 (13-2) (Saturday, December 24, 2016)

'Tis the season for drubbing, fa la, fa la!

On Christmas Eve, the Patriots cleaned the Jets' clocks. It was nearly a shut-out, but the Jets squeezed in a field goal. They really didn't have their hearts in it. Their head coach, Todd Bowles, had been hospitalized with gallstones Friday but was cleared and flew up to Foxboro to join his team. A pity the team didn't rally around him.

LeGarrette Blount scored rushing touchdowns No. 16 and 17 and Tom Brady was tip-top. He really is amazing. Watching the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) is a joy. :)

Malcolm Butler, the hero of Super Bowl XLIX, intercepted 2 passes and caused a fumble. The kid's a gem! :)

The Dolphins beat the Bills in overtime.

Author’s Note: This was written as I tried to work through my feelings about the 2016 Presidential election results. Considering Trump’s misogynistic record, I figured Diana would be a good character to use, and Steve as a pretty progressive guy would also be conflicted as Trump is now his Commander-in-Chief! This story is not intended as any definitive answer, just some theories as to why we will be ruled by right-wing Republicans come Inauguration Day and what it was like the morning after Election Night for half of America.

Diana and Steve were sitting on the couch watching TV in Steve’s living room, stunned expressions on their faces. They turned to look at each other. )

Week 15: New England Patriots 16, Denver Broncos 3 (12-2) (Sunday, December 18, 2016)

The House of Horrors was not so this week for Tom and the Patriots. While the offense was stymied at times by the Denver defense, LeGarrette Blount still scored his 15th touchdown of the year, breaking the franchise record, and the Pats defense and special teams were pretty sharp. Hey, they held the Broncos to 3 points in their house! So pretty good, I'd say, and Dion Lewis and James White, our other running backs, had good games, too.

The Pats clinched the division (7th record-breaking year in a row!) and a first-round bye in the playoffs. They don't know if they'll be 1st or 2nd seed yet, but it's lookin' good for the postseason! *dances*

It was good to see guys like Chris Long enjoy the AFC East Division crown as he's been in the league a long time and never been in a playoff game! He's very excited.

The Bills and Dolphins won and the Jets lost this week.

Week 14: New England Patriots 30, Baltimore Ravens 23 (11-2) (Monday, December 2, 2016)

The Patriots nearly gave the game away after a strong start (would've been a blow-out!). A boneheaded INT by Brady and two special teams mistakes (turnovers) gifted the Ravens with 17 points in the second half. The whole game was wacky as the Pats scored first in the first half with a safety (2 points) and there was good offense after a stumbling start, but the wheels looked like they were falling off as a 23-3 lead dwindled to 23-20, but Tom let loose with a 79-yard bomb to Chris Hogan o stretch the lead to 30-20 (Ravens would score a field goal later).

Tom threw for 406 yards and 3 TDs. RB LeGarrette Blount went over 1000 yards rushing for the season and scored his 14th touchdown for 2016, tying a franchise record (Curtis Martin).

BTW, the Giants accused the Steelers this week of underinflating footballs. You didn't hear about it? Not surprising. The story took up about a total of five minutes on ESPN, the NFL Network, FOX Sports, etc. No leading the evening news. No rabid pack of reporters calling Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers QB) a cheater and liar at his press conference. No loss of draft picks, a million bucks, or 4-game suspension and smearing of the game's greatest player. Guess what? Tom Brady told the truth! NO ONE TAMPERED WITH THE FOOTBALLS! IT WAS THE IDEAL GAS LAW, NFL DUMMIES!!!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/redskins/the-nfls-damning-silence-on-a-new-case-of-underinflated-footballs/2016/12/12/6698cae6-c097-11e6-afd9-f038f753dc29_story.html?utm_term=.0049ae39c52d

Giants tweeted out today, "Much ado about nothing." Unless you're trying to trump up a case against the Patriots, right? All this tells you all you need to know about the witch hunt case against the Patriots. The Good Ol' Boy network is alive and well in the NFL.


The Dolphins and Jets won and the Bills lost this week.
