Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots Game Preview

SERIES RECORD: Miami leads the all-time series, 52-46

LAST MEETING: In Miami on Sep. 7, 2014; Miami 33, New England 20

Every game during the NFL schedule is critical – however, when there are only three weeks left in the season, your team is in a four-way tie for 8th place in the AFC and you’re heading into your division leader’s home turf to play the team that also happens to be one of your biggest rivals – well, that game is even more critical. In fact, it’s more like win – or else.

New England, who has won eight of 10 in the all-time series with Miami, hasn’t lost at home to the Dolphins since 2008. However, New England’s most recent loss in that 10-game span was earlier this year, a 33-20 Miami win at Sun Life Stadium to open the season. Since that game, the Fins have gone 6-6, while the Patriots have gone 10-2. Most recently, the Pats have won eight of nine, with their only loss coming two weeks ago to the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field.

This game isn’t just critical for Miami’s postseason lives, however. New England is one win away from securing the AFC East division title, which would be their sixth in a row, and another step closer to getting a bye in the first round of the playoffs.

The Miami Dolphins are still mathematically in the race for the postseason, but they need victories in their last three games to have a chance to make a playoff run. That starts this weekend at Gillette Stadium, and even though this game is on the road, did you know that you can still get tickets to this AFC East matchup from This is Miami’s last road game of 2014 before they return home to the friendly confines of Sun Life Stadium. You can stand behind your team now by purchasing tickets to this weekend’s game, or either of the last two games in South Florida. With the holidays around the corner, don’t delay in getting your tickets today from!
