    Hi, everybody! :) Our 5-6 Dolphins will try to avenge their earlier loss this season as they host the 7-4 Patriots in an important AFC East Division battle at Landshark Stadium. A win would make our Fins even their season record to 6-6, and stay alive for at least a Wild Card Playoff spot in the NFL Playoffs.

    Today's game would be the 89th meeting between the Dolphins and Patriots, and the 44th straight year they play together as divisional foes. Dolphins currently leads the all-time regular season series over the Patriots 49-39, 32-12 in home games in Miami, and also lead the Pats in postseason 2-1.

    Patriots unfortunately won the earlier meeting with a strong second half surge at Gillette Stadium 27-17 back on November 8, and are attempting a seventh season sweep over our Fins in the annual series. Patriots have won 11 of the last 16 games over our Fins during the regular season.

    NFL On CBS's #1 broadcast team of Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will announce the live TV commentary of the Dolphins/Patriots game, shown regionally at mostly in Florida and New England, and locally on WFOR CBS 4 in Miami.

    Former Dolphin players Jimmy Cefalo, Jim Mandich, and Joe Rose will also announce the live radio game play-by-play and analysis on flagship station WQAM SportsRadio 560AM, and the Dolphins Radio Network.

    Local weather conditions at Landshark Stadium in Opa Locka for today's 1:00PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff is mostly clear, but cool with partly cloudy skies at 53 degrees, 10% precipitation, 71% humidity, and very mild souther winds at 4 miles per hour.

    Dolphins may wear their aqua jerseys, and white pants, while the visiting Patriots will wear their white jerseys, and navy blue pants on the field.

    I wish the Dolphins to continue their destiny to reach the postseason by , play smart and safe football with a productive offense and a swarming defense, and that there are no injuries today. Play for win #6 in front of your home fans, and GO DOLPHINS!!!!! :woot: :dolphins::dolphins::dolphins:

    I have a feeling we get the win. The Fins have a long history of owning TB in Miami. It's a must win for Miami, but it's going to be tough. It's going to be a single point game, win or lose.

    BB absolutely ripped the team after the Saints loss. Expect the Pats to come out gunning. But yeah, I expect a one score game.

    After last week's loss to the Bills, I'm not really looking forward to this game. Without Chad Pennington at QB and all the damned injuries, we're just not the same team as last year. Sad to say, but I'm afraid the Patriots are going to beat us bad today. I guess I'm PRE-bummed even though the game hasn't started yet.

    We sure as hell don't have a Moss or a Welker. Having ONE of those guys on our team would be nice. Don't know if Chad Henne is going to be "the answer" to our QB wishes either. He needs to "have the light come on" soon. Us Dolphins fans are STILL waiting as patiently as we can for the "next Marino". Surely Henne realizes that we've been through a LOT of QBs since Marino. He better start flashing some star talent .... SOON.

    You do know we were 0-3 and averaging about 10 ppg with Pennington right?

    I will hope for the best today being a die hard dolphins fan. My wife says that im am useless after the dolphins lose. She is a Pats fan so i will have to deal with everyone i know throwing it in my face if the Phins lose. God i hope we can pull this out but pats are 21-1 after a loss in recent history.

    Today a win would cap off a perfect weekend! Let's go Fins. Time to fight against the odds again, and smash the Pats in the mouth. JT knows all about doing that!

    I am watching ESPN's pre-game show and Joey Porter showed up wearing camoflaged army clothes....even has on a camo hat. He better play like it is a war and not just run his mouth.

    I hope he plays like his career is on the line and not like he blends in w/ the field. Hope it isnt a bad sign for him.

    I don't know if Joey Porter is going to be much of a factor today. Apparently his knee is injured again, so eh.

    I think we will see Henne have a monster game against a weak Pats def..... i think Henne has his best game today, he knows what is at stake, this is the true test for Henne where we will all see what henne is all about. We win we get a shot for the play offs, we lose and it's basically the season. Go Fins and Henne Win this for us Fans.

    Maybe just maybe if we can take a page from the Saints. If Ginn can catch today (fingers crossed) and Henne gets some time they can air it out. If Ginn can get behind the Defence and maybe make a few dep catches.

    How about 20-0 Dolphins? I went to that game and it was amazing. TB is cursed in Miami, the Fins are pumped up, and the Patriots are upset. It's going to be a hard fought game to the end, but if it's a single point game, Miami will win. They are undefeated in those kind of games.

    Hopefully all the above...... hartline , bess and Ginn we need a complete game for all of our receivers. and Ginn is going to have to have some big returns today. I have confidence that these receivers can get the job done they did last year with Pennington.:hump:

    Well, they are good receivers, jut not people who can rack over 100 yards. Maybe Ginn or Hartline.

    I was chating with some big fin fans on twitter that know alot about the dolphins and they were saying that ginn might not play that Turner would be getting a shot today. I hope this isn't true, as much as ginn sucks catching we need his speed to strech the field.

    no we don't, we don't need anything ginn is selling. he is utterly useless, barring a ST breakdown that let's him get outside. He cant return anything in the middle of the field, his only shot is getting to the outside and going up the sideline where he can quickly step out if anyone gets within 5 yards of him.

    seriously, get someone else out there that might want it more than ginn.
