FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Another year, another division title for the New England Patriots.
The Patriots (11-2) claimed their sixth straight AFC East championship and the 13th under Bill Belichick by virtue of the Miami Dolphins losing 31-24 to the New York Giants on Monday night.
"It's nice to have it, but at the end of the day it's not our end goal," Patriots defensive lineman Alan Branch said. "We'll put it in our pocket, but it's on to the (Tennessee) Titans."
