Tom Brady has one simple answer to why his New England Patriots have struggled in Miami."They play well and we don't White Matthew Slater Jerseys ," Brady said Friday.He was smiling, but you know 鈥?and he knows 鈥?winning in Miami is one thing in a brilliant career that Brady hasn't been able to do consistently. Look at the numbers:鈥擝rady is 7-9 at Miami, where the Patriots have lost four of the last five years. He is 15-1 against the Dolphins at home.鈥擝rady has lost seven career games in December, five of them at Miami.鈥擝rady is 79-19 against the AFC East in the regular season, with 10 of the losses coming at the hands of the Dolphins, a team he has beaten 22 times."Regardless, none of that stuff matters," Brady said. "This week it's really this team against that team and we're going to have to play well. They play good at home, they're 5-1, they've got a good defense . we've got a big challenge. Should be fun."And the Patriots are favored to win this game, which would give them their 10th straight AFC East title, the 18th in 25 years under owner Robert Kraft. The division is consistently the most lopsided in football - and New England has dominated.But not in the Florida sunshine."We've tried a bunch of different things over the years Matthew Slater Jerseys 2019 ," Brady said of preparation for this annual visit, which has also included practicing indoors with the heat cranked up. "We've gone down there Thursday night and practiced Friday, gone down there Friday night after practice, stayed there Saturday. It's just really about playing good when it comes down to it; there's no magic formula."This week, the Patriots, who have won eight of their last nine games, have been working in the New England cold after beating the Minnesota Vikings 24-10 on a drizzly day at Gillette Stadium."When you look at those stats, it is pretty interesting, the way some of those teams from the South come up and play, the teams from the North play in the South - there's got to be something to it," Brady said. "It just comes down to playing good football. We've had some great games down there, too. Hopefully this is a great game for us. But we have to go earn it."He fondly recalled the overtime long pass he threw to Troy Brown to win the 2003 game White Devin McCourty Jerseys , ending New England's five-game losing streak down there, remembering the celebration, and "flipping people off" on the bus leaving.This week, they face a Miami team that is 5-1 at home, 1-5 on the road, and one that will be without its best defender. NFL interceptions leader Xavien Howard, who picked Brady twice down there last year, is injured."I think just playing down there has its challenges," Brady said. "Every team kind of has its challenges going down there. They play well at home. I think they use the climate as a benefit to them, just as we use our as a benefit to us."Brady enters this game tied with Peyton Manning for the career lead with 579 career touchdown passes, counting playoffs. His 508 regular- season TD passes are tied with Brett Favre for third place.A win Sunday would also give New England its 16th straight 10-win season. And then there's the division title."That would be pretty sweet," Brady said. "Obviously trying to win the division is a great step. This would really allow us to do that; they're going to really challenge us. It's going to be a physical game Devin McCourty Jerseys 2019 , they've been talking about that. We're prepared to just having the right mindset to go down there and play a real great, complementary game." The five favorites to be on the show all have ties to New England one way or the other." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhitePats Pulpita New England Patriots communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpPatriots NewsOpinion and AnalysisContribute!About the SiteTopicsPatriotsOddsShopStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhitePatriots News Opinion and Analysis Contribute!

There are, of course, rules about which clubs can appear on the show: teams that have a first-year head coach, have reached the playoffs in either of the last two seasons, or have already been featured in the past ten years are exempt from participation. With all that in mind, lets take a look at the five teams eligible, ranked by their odds (via betonline.ag) and including their connections to the New England Patriots:Washington Redskins: 5/4The betting favorites to be featured on the show this year revolve around first-round quarterback Dwayne Haskins. Three former Patriots are also with the team, however: former Tom Brady backup Kevin OConnell is the teams offensive coordinator, while ex-New England linebackers coach Rob Ryan serves in the same role in Washington. From the on-field personnel White Isaiah Wynn Jerseys , linebacker Marquis Flowers spent one season with the Patriots.Oakland Raiders: 5/2Jon Gruden is the main attraction in Oakland, but there is also a notable former Patriot with the team: Trent Brown joined the Raiders this offseason as the highest-paid offensive tackle in NFL history. Beyond Tom Bradys 2018 blindside protector, the club also brings some intrigue to the table in terms of position battles: who can say no to a quarterback matchup between Mike Glennon and Nathan Peterman? Or a duel of the long snappers?New York Giants: 3/1One year before Oakland made Trent Brown the leagues richest lineman, the Giants bestowed the honor (and money associated with it) to long-time New England left tackle Nate Solder. The 31-year-old is not the only former Patriot in New York: Jon Halapio was a sixth-round draft choice by the team in 2014. On top of the personnel connections, the two clubs will also again meet in week four of the preseason New England could be featured in one of the shows final episodes.Detroit Lions: 7/2No team among the favorites to be on Hard Knocks this season has as many ties to the Patriots as the Lions. General manager Bob Quinn, head coach Matt Patricia, various members of the coaching staff and the roster among the latter: free agency acquisition Trey Flowers and Danny Amendola all previously worked in New England. Furthermore, the club is a prime candidate to hold joint training camp practices with the Patriots: Detroit will host the world champions in the two teams preseason openers.San Francisco 49ers: 9/1Two of the most important people in the 49ers organizations have close ties to the Patriots: general manager John Lynch spent his final training camp before retiring in New England, while quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was selected by the team in the second round in 2014. Needless to say that both would see plenty of screen time if Hard Knocks were to take place in San Francisco in 2019. Another man to watch: Wes Welker, who joined the team as its wide receivers coach this offseason.With all that in mind, which team would you want to be featured on Hard Knocks in 2019?
