19th...Nervous Breakdown?

Not a chance.

Pats beat the Dolphins to win their NFL-record 19th straight game.

While Pats fans might have been nervous about Miami defending a record held (in part) by their franchise in what otherwise looked like a classic "trap" game, this team is very good at taking care of business. Everyone remembers a seemingly unstoppable 11-0 Chicago Bears team losing in the Orange Bowl on a Monday night in late 1985, so that the 1972 Dolphins remained (and remain) the only undefeated full season in NFL history. But this game was in New England, and that 1985 Dolphins team was, well, good. (They almost certainly would given the Bears a better game in the Super Bowl than the Pats did that year.)

The Patriots defense was good as usual, and Brady put together his usual solid performance.

Unfortunately for them, the eyes of the New England sports world are still on the baseball diamond, as Boston gears up for another showdown with the Yankees.
