FOXBOROUGH — With a win Sunday over Miami, the Patriots could clinch the AFC East title. They have reeled off five straight victories. New England has the highest-powered offense in the league. Stevan Ridley has rushed for the third-most yards in the AFC; he is 61 yards away from the 1,000-yard mark.

Appropriately, there’s a good feeling in the New England backfield.
