The New England Patriots' final game of the 2015 NFL season didn't exactly go to plan.

The Foxboro franchise lost 20-10 against the Miami Dolphins, surrendering the top seed in the AFC in the process, and suffered a scare as Tom Brady limped away from the contest courtesy of a big Ndamukong Suh hit.

Scare

With the Patriots having endured a number of injury setbacks to key players throughout the 2015 regular season, losing their talismanic quarterback would be a disaster. Fortunately, ESPN's Adam Schefter had some good news today.

The NFL insider, speaking via his official Twitter page, had an update that will likely be met with a collective sigh of relief from the Pats faithful.

Brady told reporters after the game that he was "sore" but would be "alright," but, after receiving attention during the week 17 game and sitting out New England's final drive as a precaution, there was no certainty surrounding his status until today's MRI scan.

Finding fitness

The Patriots have a first-round bye after ending the season as the AFC's second seed, meaning Brady has a few extra days to recover from the sprain.

With the veteran QB's favorite target, wide receiver Julian Edelman, also set to be back in the fold come January 16 the Patriots will be hoping their offense will be firing on all cylinders as they attempt to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles.

Having Tom Brady healthy and available to lead the team certainly boosts their chances of achieving that goal.
