McDaniels: Brady never swayed during NFL fight Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said the team's approach throughout the offseason "hadn't changed a whole" lot as Tom Brady fought the NFL, and he praised Brady for staying focused.
The Patriots wrapped up the AFC East last week but the all important home field advantage is still on the line with three games left. With that in mind, Bill Belichick's team can't afford a letdown against the 2-11 Dolphins on Monday Night Football.
If nothing else, the Dolphins have refused to quit. They beat the 49ers two weeks ago and have played the Bills and Broncos extremely tough the last two weeks. If Miami has any chance of pulling off the upset at home, QB A.J. Feeley has to take advantage of his array of receiving weapons and be more efficient in doing so.
