Brian Flores paid his first visit to Gillette Stadium since leaving the Patriots to become the Dolphins head coach and it turned out to be a memorable return to his old stomping grounds.The Dolphins scored with less than a minute to play and beat the Patriots 27-24 on Sunday afternoon. The loss and the Chiefs’ win over the Chargers means that the Patriots will not get a bye as the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs.After the game , Flores downplayed the significance of the win to him personally and kept the focus on his team. He took issue with those who called it a “meaningless game’ for the Dolphins and shared how he felt about a team that went 5-4 after opening the season with seven straight losses.“The credit goes to the players, as well as, our coaching staff. These guys work hard and they fight and they compete,” Flores said in his postgame press conference. “They believe in the process. They understand the way we have to prepare, the way we have to practice, the way we have to meet, the way we have to walk through and I say it week after week, and our coaches say it week after week , after week. I think they just started to believe in it. And when you string good practices, good days, you string them together, good results come. And that’s what you have seen in the last nine, 10, 12 weeks. But I’m proud of that group.”There’s a lot of work for the Dolphins to do in order to get to a place where they are competing for playoff spots rather than playing spoiler, but the close to this season left little doubt about their choice of a head coach. The new league is facing its end."WhitePatriots News Opinion and Analysis Contribute!

And while the new league, which is currently in the ninth week of its ten-week-long regular season, will reportedly not yet fold, it certainly looks like that step will be taken sooner rather than later. If those reports therefore hold true, the league will be over soon.Founded by Charlie Ebersol and ex-NFL executive Bill Polian, the league consisted of eight teams which played their first-ever games over the course of the weekend after the New England Patriots’ victory in Super Bowl 53. The AAF was clearly a notch below the NFL, but it still had plenty of entertainment value and adequate enough talent to for further growth — in part due to its experimental nature when it comes to rules and officiating.Ultimately , the league’s demise appears to have more to do with internal issues regarding majority owner Tom Dundon. Just last week, Dundon threatened to pull the plug for the league — one in which he invested $250 million — in case the NFL Players Association didn’t comply with the AAF’s wishes to get access to depth players in order help his own league become more competitive and closer tie itself to its big brother.However, it appears as if no such thing will happen. While the AAF — which according to Sports Illustrated’s Conor Orr was caught by surprise by the initial report — could still be saved, it appears as if it will join the USFL, the XFL, and other defunct leagues in the pro football graveyard.
