Patriots can clinch AFC East Sunday

The playoffs are within reach for the Patriots. A win on Sunday in Miami would clinch a fourth straight AFC East title for New England.

A win would elevate the Patriots to 9-3 and knock the Dolphins down to 5-7 and would give the Patriots the necessary tiebreakers even if they lost their four remaining games.
