The Patriots found points hard to come by in their AFC East-clinching win over the Dolphins in Week 13. But they did find success on the ground, however, especially late in the game. Up 20-13 with a little over eight minutes remaining, the Pats went on a 77-yard march that took 7:18 off the clock and, with a swift field goal, ensured their ninth victory. On that 16-play drive, New England ran the ball 13 times, methodically moving down the field with a 4.3 yards-per-carry average. Of the 13 runs, six were the exact same -- a dive over left guard.

Fantasy Forecast: Week 14

QB Tom Brady The Texans haven’t been stalwarts against the pass, giving up 230+ yards per game and 20 scores on the season. Opening up running lanes against this defense will be tough, so don’t be surprised to see Brady put the ball in the air at least 40 times. That should equate to 300+ yards and at least two scores. WRs Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd I see no good...
