Joey Porter predicts New England lost after 21 straight wins

The New England Patriots have won 21 straight regular season games. But all that comes to an end when they face the Miami Dolphins this weekend, according to linebacker Joey Porter. Go ahead, laugh. Porter will laugh the loudest come Sunday. The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero writes in his blog:
    God bless Joey Porter because he always has something interesting to say. Today, after he spent a few minutes speaking both truth and blasphemy about New England's quarterback, he threw in these words that likely will resonate in New England the next few days:

    "We're going to come after the guy. I don't want to say something that will come back and bite me. It'll be good to go out and get our first victory," Porter said of Cassel and Miami's game against the Patriots. You can get a complete rundown of what Porter said here.

    Now, as guarantees go, this one is pretty flimsy. Porter did a much better job guaranteeing wins last year for the Dolphins and in previous years with Pittsburgh.

Ok, maybe Porter isn't the best predictor of NFL games, but it does give us one more storyline to follow. Plus, it gets the Dolphins some pub. Otherwise, no one would care about this stinking game.
