(WPRI) – The Patriots roll into Miami Sunday afternoon with a chance to secure home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
If New England beats Miami they can clinch the home-field advantage they let slip away at the end of the 2015-2016 season. Oakland can secure it instead if the pats lose today and the Raiders beat the 8-7 Denver Broncos today.
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill remains out with a knee injury he suffered December 11.
The Pats have already locked up a first-round bye.
Kickoff is at 1 p.m. on WPRI 12.
