There is no doubting the talent of the University of Connecticut’s women’s basketball program. The Huskies won their fourth straight NCAA championship three weeks ago, crushing Syracuse by 31 points in the title game. Surprising? Hardly.

Beat the 5-10 Miami Dolphins in the final game of the regular season and clinch the top seed in the AFC playoffs. Pretty easy, right? Apparently not for the Patriots.
