Miami Dolphins beat New England Patriots, 22-12

[Week 15 Recaps: LAR-NYJ | IND-HOU | TEN-DET | PHI-ARI | ATL-TB | WFT-SEA | BAL-JAX | DAL-SF | KC-NO | CLE-NYG | NE-MIA | MIN-CHI]

Bill Belichick entered 21-7 against rookie quarterbacks, having not lost to one since 2013, but he exited losing to Tua Tagovailoa and company, as the Patriots were eliminated from the playoffs Sunday … Salvon Ahmed reclaimed Miami’s workhorse role and produced a big game during the fantasy semifinals, becoming the first Dolphins player with 100 rushing yards in two years (he also had a second touchdown narrowly overturned by replay). Next week Miami gets a Raiders defense that’s allowed the third-most fantasy points to running backs this season, so Ahmed is going to be a major difference-maker in the fantasy playoffs … It’s a shame the Jets’ loss may take away some gamesmanship possibilities during a Week 17 matchup with Belichick, who would presumably prefer not having Trevor Lawrence in his division moving forward … Cam Newton’s 209 passing yards marked his fourth-highest total of the season … Reigning DPOY Stephon Gilmore left with a non-contact injury that didn’t look good … The Dolphins with some trickery during a two-point conversion:
