FOXBORO -- When San Francisco starting quarterback Alex Smith got injured this year his backup was pressed into service.
From Comcast SportsNetFOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Tom Brady can't stop smiling these days.
Bill Belichick said he "had a good feeling" when he woke up on Monday morning as the AFC East Champions.
So the Patriots beat the Dolphins on Sunday, 23-16, to clinch the AFC East title. That's nice. Take a moment to enjoy it. There you go. Feels good, right? OK, that's enough.
Once again, the Patriots offense had a chance to put away a game in the fourth quarter. And as has been the case lately, they succeeded.
