The figureheads of the Patriots -- Bil Belichick and Tom Brady -- have intentionally dodged Twitter and want you to know they have zero plans to update their facebook status anytime soon.
The New England Patriots overcame a 17-point deficit in Week 16 to get a 27-24 win over the Miami Dolphins, clenching a first-round bye in the AFC playoffs. The Dolphins dominated the first half, getting two touchdowns and a field goal, but tapered off in the second half as the Patriots came back and scored three touchdowns and two field goals.
