The New England Patriots already have a playoff spot locked up and a first round bye. However, many questions surround the team as they play Miami in the regular season finale.

Those questions include what players are healthy enough to play, how long do you let Tom Brady play, can they clinch the number one seed and can they get through a game without sustaining more injuries?

We do know a few answers to some of those questions. For starters, a win or tie will clinch the number one seed and home field throughout the AFC playoffs. Additionally, a loss or tie by the Denver Broncos will also give New England the number one seed. The Broncos play the Chargers in a 4:30pm game in Denver.

When the Pats and Dolphins take the field, New England will be going for their 10th season sweep over Miami. That feat will not be easy as the Pats have not always been successful on South Beach. The Pats own the Dolphins at home with a 32-17 record, however when they play in Miami the Dolphins have won 35 of the 50 games played in the sunshine state.
