The New England Patriots brought back their silver pants for last week’s big win over the Buffalo Bills. So, why change a winning formula? At least why change pants? Today New England is wearing their winning silver pants again, in the hopes that the winning stays with them. The Boston Red Sox had a similar uniform good luck charm with yellow shirts this past summer, so if anyone believes in superstitions, there is reason for optimism with the Patriots today.
As for the game, today marks the return of Miami Dolphins CB Jalen Ramsey. He came over from the Los Angeles Rams in the offseason, but has yet to play. Ramsey underwent meniscus surgery in July and was originally expected to be out until December. His return could be a big boost for the Miami defense, who will be without starting safety Jevon Holland. It will be interesting to see how the Patriots offense attacks the former All-Pro.

Fun Fact of the Day
Only three New England Patriots quarterbacks are undefeated in Miami, and each has only started one game there: Doug Flutie, Matt Cassel and Mike Taliaferro. Meanwhile four quarterbacks have no wins and multiple losses: Marc Wilson. Matt Cavanaugh, Mac Jones and Jim Plunkett. Jones will try to remove himself from that group today.
