The Patriots will be looking to serve the Dolphins a cold dish of revenge on Sunday, as this aqua-clad team has been giving the Patriots headaches in recent years. The Dolphins have actually won three of the past five meetings dating back to December of 2015, so it’s on the Patriots to curb that trend.
Most recently, the Dolphins foiled the Patriots’ drive at earning the No. 1 overall seed in the 2015 playoffs by winning in every phase of the game in Week 17 last year, 20-10. It was a meaningless game only to a certain extent; no matter what, the Patriots were going to be in the playoffs, but losing out on the No. 1 overall seed came back to bite them later when the Denver Broncos ran train on them in the AFC Championship Game.
Nothing would help to soothe the pain of losing to the Dolphins in the 2015 regular season finale quite like sending them to 0-2 on the year by taking care of business at home this Sunday.
