With New England playing so well at every level, home field throughout the playoffs would certainly strike fear into the rest of the conference.
After looking like a bottom feeder in the AFC with a 1-4 SU and ATS start, Miami completely turned its season around with a 9-1 SU and 8-1-1 ATS run. The turnaround began when Jay Ajayi took over the starting running back job with a 204-yard performance against Pittsburgh, his first of three games with over 200 yards rushing this season. Dolphins vs Steelers Live Even without starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, the Dolphins have continued to roll with back-to-back wins.

New England has more to gain from this game than Miami does with the chance to secure the top seed in the AFC. But Miami may still opt to go all out in this game regardless of already having a playoff spot locked up, as a win would keep the Dolphins red hot and serve as a nice confidence booster against one of the best teams in the NFL.
