    THE SERIES

    SERIES RECORD: Miami leads 50-45 (including playoffs)
    AT MIAMI: Dolphins lead 33-14
    AT NEW ENGLAND: Patriots lead 30-17
    AT TAMPA: Patriots lead 1-0
    LAST MEETING: 2012 at New England; Patriots 28, Dolphins 0
    HISTORY LESSON: The Dolphins have a 5-7 record in New England in October games, and perhaps their most memorable victory among those came on Oct. 17, 1999. The game started off as poorly as the Dolphins could ever have imagined as the Patriots returned two interceptions for touchdowns for a quick 14-0 lead and Dan Marino left the game with an injury after the first of those two picks. But behind an impressive relief performance by quarterback Damon Huard and a team-record six field goals by Olindo Mare, the Dolphins rallied for a 31-30 victory, winning on Huard’s 5-yard touchdown pass to fullback Stanley Pritchett with 23 seconds left.
    SERIES TREND: The Patriots have dominated division battles in recent years, and that unfortunately includes their games against the Dolphins. New England has won the past six meetings since the Dolphins’ thrilling 22-21 victory in December of 2009. The Dolphins’ last victory at Gillette Stadium came on Sept. 21, 2008, the day the Wildcat formation was unveiled. With Ronnie Brown scoring a team-record four rushing touchdowns and throwing for a fifth, the Dolphins routed the Patriots that day, 38-13.

    Tom Brady defrauds the food stamp office and buys beer for underaged kids. I even saw him kick a puppy once....a poor defensless puppy

    Thier top 6 players in no particular order:
    Brady
    Gronk
    Amendola
    Wilfork
    Talib
    Mayo

    3 of them are out and Amendola and Gronk aren't be 100%. We are as healthy as can be on the other hand, this should be a good game.

    Well here's our season and our playoff game, if we lose, lets hope the NFL adds 2 more wildcard spots, to the playoff format next year.

    We wait all off season for meaningful football,the biggest and most meaningful football games are against division opponents.Starting with the Pats.Lets see how we measure up vs the Patsy's.

    My predicition is upset game of the week,37-27 phins but I'm leaning on a potential OT game 30-27 Phins.Depends on our defense more than our offense.

    I think the fins win today. Traditionally they win just enough to make you believe in them.

    east race, just need to turn it around today.

    Not sure what they are doing with watkins. Maybe they see the potential , just don't see why he is on the roster but never active. OL management is baffling.

    i think one of the main reasons ireland "gets it" is he understands the state of this franchise and is drafting depth for the future. in other words, we are already a contender and dont need to draft guys that can get on the field this year. we need to draft guys that are developmental players with health issues that may be able to help us down the road.

    Big thing today is going to be turnovers and red zone. Seems like a broken record. I think we can score on them...but we need tuddies not fist pumps. Also...our defense has to get back to being stingy in the red zone. Thats how you beat teams like NE...you make them kick field goals.

    I feel like Jamar Taylor and Will Davis have not gotten a single game of experience out of their season so far...it seems like they will be an ongoing project over the next few years. Also amazed how we go into so many games depleted at the secondary.

    Of course all the pats weapons are playing today. Just are luck. We really need to play a clean game to have a chance.

    I had nightmares all night of us losing to the Bills team and Geno Smith. It was bizarre. And to make it worse we're playing the Pats this morning. :/
