Five Things to Watch This Week - Weeks 16 and 17 (Game 15 and 16)

The Patriots play their fifteenth regular season game at EverBank Field against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, December 23rd at 1:00 PM.

The Patriots play their sixteenth regular season game at Gillette Stadium against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, December 30th at 1:00 PM.

2) Logan Mankins - The offensive line has been pretty good this year, even the weeks he's been out.  But I'd still rather have …
