Here was the latest sweep:

New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins – Monday at 8:30 p.m. ET

The Patriots (2-1, 1-2 ATS) 38-30 victory over the Bills. New England failed to cover the 14.5-point spread, and the game served as a microcosm of how this season is likely to go for the Pats: a great offense mixed with a terrible defense. Tom Brady continued his great start in 2010, completing 21 of 27 passes for 252 yards and three touchdowns against the Bills. He’s doing a great job spreading the football around, as seven different players caught passes. Brady was also aided by an improved running game. BenJarvis Green-Ellis rushed 16 times for 98 yards and a touchdown.

The defense, however, is a nightmare. The Pats are allowing a whopping 27 points per outing, and giving up 30 to the Bills is just embarrassing. Ryan Fitzpatrick completed over 70 percent of his passes against the overwhelmed secondary while the ground game racked up 134 yards and averaged 5.6 yards per pop. Last but not least, New England was burned for a touchdown on special teams. There’s no question Brady and Co. are in playoff form, but the “D” has some tremendous catching up to do.

Miami (2-1, 2-1 ATS) lost a 31-23 heartbreaker to the Jets last week (the Dolphins failed to cover as a one-point favorite). The team has nobody to blame but itself, especially after Chad Henne drove the Dolphins inside the 20-yard-line with seconds remaining. Despite managing to tie the game up, Henne should be applauded for a great game. He threw for a career high 363 yards and added a pair of touchdown passes. That said, the coaching staff could do a better job balancing the offense. Henne had 44 pass attempts, while running backs Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams combined for just 18 carries (for 82 yards). Running the football is Miami’s bread and butter, so expect to see more of that on Monday night.

The Dolphins were exposed in a few areas on defense in last week’s loss to New York. Tight end Dustin Keller had a great day, racking up 98 yards and two touchdowns. The Pats have utilized a pair of rookie tight ends very well this season—Aaron Hernandez and Ron Gronkowski have combined for 18 catches for 269 yards and two touchdowns—so that will be a factor in tonight’s game.

There are some nice match ups for the Patriots to exploit in this one, particularly at tight end. Miami is going to rack up some points and you’re best bet is to take the over on the total. Look for Brady to continue his fine season, outduel Henne, and lead the Pats to a shootout victory.
