OUR PICK: The Patriots' don't have the Seahawks' defense but they too should hold Tannehill and Co. in check this week. Garoppolo might also struggle against a Miami defensive line that is one of the best in the AFC, led by Ndamukong Suh, Cameron Wake and Mario Williams. The under is a perfect 4-0 in the Dolphins' last four games overall and 4-0 in their last four games versus AFC opponents. The under has also cashed ins ix of the last eight meetings between these two teams.
