Dolphins/Patriots Preview

SERIES RECORD: Miami leads 50-43
LAST MEETING: At New England on Dec. 24, 2011; Patriots 27, Dolphins 24

It’s been almost three years since the last time the Miami Dolphins defeated the New England Patriots on Dec. 6, 2009. A lot has changed on both sidelines since then, but one thing remains the same – the Patriots are still the team to beat in the AFC East.

At 8-3, the Pats have a firm grip on the division this season, with Miami trailing behind in second with a 5-6 record. While New England could clinch the division with a win in Miami, the Fins are still clawing to put themselves in position to get one of the coveted wildcard spots in the playoff race. To do that, Miami would almost certainly need to get this game in the win column… but if it were only that easy.

New England is hitting its stride at this point in the season, as they usually do at this time of the year. Winners of five straight, the Patriots sport the NFL’s best offensive numbers, with an average of 37 points per game on more than 435 yards of total offense per contest. The Pats have scored 28 TDs in that five-game span – six of which have come via the defense of special teams – and quarterback Tom Brady has accounted for 14 of those while throwing no interceptions.

To put it into layman’s terms, Miami will need to be spotless – no turnovers, forcing New England into some miscues, and the defense will need to step up to put a halt to this potent offense that scored 35 points in one quarter alone last week – if they hope to have any shot of winning this game. One thing on Miami’s side, however, is the fact that they will be playing in front of their home crowd, where they are 3-2 this season and 33-14 all-time vs. the Pats.

This is a big week and a big challenge for the Fins, but they are hoping to start a winning streak against one of the top opponents in not only their division, but the entire NFL.
