The Patriots are preparing for a crucial Week 18 game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, and Rob Ninkovich doesn’t have too much faith New England will come out on top.
But even with Mac Jones under center and a lot on the line, Ninkovich still believes his former team ultimately will leave Miami with a loss.
“Guess what? I’ve gone down to Miami at the end of the year and I’ve lost,” Ninkovich said on “Merloni & Fauria” on Friday, as transcribed by WEEI. “I can just tell you its always a hard game in Miami in (December and January). It’s really hard to win down there.”
The Dolphins don’t have much to play for considering they were eliminated from playoff contention, but the fate of the Patriots’ seeding in the division ultimately depends on the outcome of the game, so maybe Miami will want to play spoiler with a win.
Kickoff for Patriots-Dolphins is at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday.
