Pats try to clinch AFC home-field advantage against Miami (The Associated Press)

The New England Patriots hope to finish the regular season with an undefeated road record so they can stay at home for the AFC playoffs. With a victory Sunday at Miami, the Patriots would improve to 8-0 in away games and clinch postseason home-field advantage. The Patriots say they’ll play their best players – Tom Brady included – even though they’ve already won the AFC East and earned a first-round bye next week.
