The New England Patriots are riding high on an eight-game winning streak, shedding their early-season defensive struggles to look like the favorites to repeat as Super Bowl champs. Can they continue their hot run over the final four games of the season? Here's how we think they'll do over the last four weeks:

Week 14: at Miami Dolphins
Even without the suspended Rob Gronkowski, this one won't be close. Miami's offense is one of the worst in the entire league, showing they simply won't be able to keep pace with New England on the scoreboard. Plus, Jay Cutler has never beaten the Patriots. There's no reason to think that will change now.
Week 15: at Pittsburgh Steelers
Talk about a heavyweight fight. This one could go down to the final possession, and Tom Brady and the Patriots just don't lose these kinds of games. Plus, they seem to have Pittsburgh's number, winning the last four matchups between the two teams. The AFC has run through them for two decades for a reason.

Week 16: vs. Buffalo Bills
The Patriots ran Buffalo off the field last week in a 23-3 win. Even if Tyrod Taylor returns totally healthy by this game, New England has clearly demonstrated that they're the better team. If Buffalo decides to make a full-time switch to Nathan Peterman, this one will be even more of a blowout.
Week 17: vs. New York Jets
There is a chance that New England loses this game - if play their backups for the entire game. They'll have the AFC wrapped up by now so I think we'll see the starters play limited minutes, but even so, I don't know how motivated the Jets will be. In fact, they may be trying to lose to better their draft position.Back to the New England Patriots Newsfeed
