Monday Night Football, Patriots At Dolphins: New England Heads To Miami For Key AFC East Battle

It's only Week 4, of course, but Monday night's game has huge implications already within the AFC East when the Patriots take on the Dolphins in Miami. 

With both teams 2-1 -- along with the Jets at the same mark -- a win Monday night could go a long way in determining who finishes atop the division at the end of the season. 

Here's how SB Nation's Joel Thorman sees it

Breakdown: The Patriots hit a speed bump against the Bills last week but still came out with the victory. But that should tell you how intense some of these AFC East matchups are. Look for the Patriots to continue with the passing game, as they usually do, and for the Dolphins to try to slow things down with the run.

Player to WatchRandy Moss. The Dolphins are going to try to run the ball a lot and the best way to kill that momentum is quick scores by the Patriots offense. I see Moss blowing up on Monday night.

Line: Patriots are one point favorites.

Prediction: I'm taking the Patriots but this is going to be a tight game. One point differential sounds about right.
