The New England Patriots have always had problems playing in Miami. Quarterback Tom Brady has his very own theory that could probably explain this problem.
Is Miami the Patriots’ kryptonite?
New England owns the Miami Dolphins at home as they have won 10 consecutive games against their opponents at Gillette stadium. However, everything changed when the Patriots travel to Miami. They have lost the last four games to the Miami Dolphins. Do you know that the team is 7-10 in Miami during Belichick’s time?
“It’s been a challenging environment. I think the climate plays some role and they always seem to play well when they play us down there. We are not going to get beat by the weather. We’re going to get beat by the Dolphins. That is what we realize. We’re going up against a good opponent that plays us very well at home. We play them very well at home. It is just one of those series where it is kind of like that,” Brady said.
The Dolphins cannot be considered a Super Bowl contenders. They are 6-6 this season, and that’s 5-1 at home. Their only loss was to Detroit Lions, and these defeated the Patriots in Week 3.
“We have to have a great week of preparation and go down there and try and play a great game against a team that has really hung in there — 6-6. They’ve battled. They have had some injuries. We’re 9-3, but if we win it is a lot of upside for us,” Brady said.
This is a nice motivation for the team. But, there’s no room for mistakes and the Patriots should definitely get ready for their trip to Miami. Is there any chance that they lose this game? Who knows… Let’s wait and find out.
