MIAMI -- You look at the Miami Dolphins defense and you see good cover corners. You see an elite pass rusher in Cameron Wake. You see big, strong down linemen, active inside linebackers and a top-notch coordinator.
That's why I picked them to be a playoff team.
Are they any good?
Or is Brady just that good?
Brady played a game of pitch-and-catch with his receivers in leading the Patriots t a 38-24 victory Monday night at Sun Life Stadium. He stood in the pocket at times for what seemed like 10 minutes, picking apart a Miami secondary that had no answer for a receiving group that isn't exactly filled with burners. Brady threw for a career-best 517 yards, four touchdown passes -- one a 99-yard throw -- and seemed to barely break a sweat.
I still think Miami's defense will be fine against mortal quarterbacks.
On this night, they faced one of the all-time greats, and Brady got them again.
But the Dolphins should get some solace in knowing he's done this to a lot of defenses that think they've arrived. Just not as bad.
