Dolphins-Patriots moved to late-afternoon slot

CBS and the NFL has moved the 14-0 New England Patriots against the 0-14 Miami Dolphins from an 1 p.m ET start to 4:15 ET on Dec. 23 (gee, who will win that one?), with the Washington Redskins-Minnesota Vikings game moving to NBC’s prime slot that same night.

The Patriots are trying to become the first team in NFL history to have a 16-0 season while the Dolphins – who had a 14-0 season in 1972 – may set history of a different sort – they could become the first team to go 0-16 (which may be fine with Bears fans on both fronts.)

So if you want to see some history made – that is, to see how many points the Patriots can roll up on the pathetic Dolphins – be my guest. Yours truly has the Patriots as 116-point favorites.
