Sadly, it seems that the playoff situations are slowly slipping out of our hands. The losses against the Miami Dolphins, Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders, Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans all are holding us back now and we can only sit and watch while the Miami Dolphins keep finding ways to win their games.

The mission seems impossible in order to make the playoffs at this point. We have to see the Miami Dolphins fold in their final 2 games of the season and we have to win our final 2 games. We still need to see the Baltimore Ravens fall down a couple of times also. That seems more likely though. The Miami Dolphins have the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets left on their schedule. We have to root for the Bills and the Jets to take care of our business while the Patriots were unable to get the job done for us.

We have games against the Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs left on the schedule, but I have a lot more confidence in us winning those games than having the Miami Dolphins folding.

We need a Christmas miracle!
