FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) -- The New England Patriots shrugged off the snow, then watched their hardy fans fling it in celebration of the team's AFC East title.
The Dolphins can't ignore the fact they have choked the past few seasons when the games count. Sadly, choking in December has become this team's modus operandi. What it all comes down to is this team isn't good enough. The collection of guys the organization has put together over the past few seasons isn't good enough to win games when they count.
Question on the Patriots: So, have the Pats now become the favorite in the AFC?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
