The Patriots‘ offense was far from lights-out in MetLife Stadium against the Jets, but that doesn’t necessarily mean New England will fall flat at home vs. Los Angeles. OK, this contest will probably go one of two ways: Either the Rams will be so ticked off by their performance in NOLA that they will play with their hair on fire at Gillette OR Tom Brady will be so motivated from last week’s slow start that he will torch the Rams‘ secondary. Jeff Fisher’s group has drawn two of the best offenses in the league, on the road, in back-to-back weeks. As far as Jared Goff is concerned … well … he should be. Since 2001, the Patriots are 7-0 against rookie quarterbacks. Those freshmen QBs sported a shiny 4:14 TD-to-INT ratio in those games. In the last two meetings between these two coaches, Belichick’s Patriots have outscored Fisher’s team 104-7. The Greatest Slow on Turf. #LAvsNE



Guessing the winning streak stops here for the Dolphins, although this will be anybody’s contest. Joe Flacco must be effective (no turnovers) for the Ravens to prevail. Meanwhile, Ryan Tannehill won’t really have Jay Ajayi to lean on, with a banged-up offensive line facing the league’s top-ranked run defense. Both of these ballclubs are gearing up for an important stretch run — especially the Dolphins, given that they are behind the Patriots and already lost the first head-to-head matchup. An AFC wild-card slot is going to require at least 10 wins, considering the strength of the West. FYI: Miami hosts the Patriots in Week 17#MIAvsBAL






One of Week 13’s toughest games to call. It looks like Andrew Luck will suit up for the Colts on Monday — and he should benefit from facing a weak Jets secondary. Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the nod from Todd Bowles, despite the disappointing ending in the loss to the PatriotsMatt Forte hit the skids in that game, but will find the Colts‘ front seven far more forgiving. Indy’s run defense allows opposing running back’s a robust 4.6 yards per carry. That should keep Fitzpatrick in favorable situations — so, in theory, he could go a second straight week without an interception. Not fun note: Gang Green is 1-7 this season when they’ve lost the turnover battle. Don’t think the lovable Jets lose either battle this week. #INDvsNYJ
