Another crazy day in Miami
We have Gumble and Deirdorf. If the Pats win, we win the AFC East. It would be good to win, and go into the two week, two primetime, games vs Houston and San Francision. This game is in Miami, and is our 7th road game, the last, in Week 16, will be against the Jags. Miami's making us wear home blue. Ron Winter is the ref.

Both offenses have looked sloppy. Neither one is looking crisp yet. We're 4 of 7 on 3rd and 4th, they're 1 of 6. If they want to keep it a game, they need to pick that up. Officiating is good, slightly in our favor, I think. One missed hold on each team, and I don't think the PI called on them was a good call. No real impact by the call, though.
In the second half, we need to run more, I think. Also, 6 possessions each is not a good sign. Over the last couple years, if we have more then 10 possessions in a game, we tend to lose or have a nailbiter win.
