In The Red Zone

What a win that was for the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon in Miami.  As we Patriots fans know Miami has always been the teams personal house of horrors and even with the win there yesterday it only improved New England’s overall record in South Florida to 12-32.  But it was a gratifying win as it kept the Patriots in the chase for the AFC East title and it was a much need win in the division and the conference.  I will say this the Miami ship has been righted and they are for real.
