The New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Hard Rock Stadium.

ABOUT THE PATRIOTS (13-2): Tom Brady missed the earlier matchup against the Dolphins while serving a four-game suspension, but he is putting up some of the most impressive numbers of his career with 25 touchdowns against two interceptions. Backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo led New England to three touchdowns drives before he was injured in the first meeting and running back LeGarrette Blount (NFL-leading 17 rushing touchdowns) finished Miami off with 29 carries for 123 yards and a score. Tight end Martellus Bennett also came up big in Week 2 with five receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown. The Patriots are allowing a league-low 15.7 points after yielding a field goal in each of the last two games.

ABOUT THE DOLPHINS (10-5): Miami will be forced to go with a backup quarterback with Matt Moore set to make his third consecutive start in place of Ryan Tannehill (knee). Moore has six touchdown passes against two interceptions in road wins at the New York Jets and Buffalo to clinch a playoff spot, leading the offense to 34 points in each of the victories. Running back Jay Ajayi emerged from a four-game funk with his third 200-yard game of the season, earning AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors by rushing for 206 yards and a touchdown on 32 carries last week. The Dolphins surrendered 589 total yards to the Bills last week and will be without two starters in cornerback Byron Maxwell and linebacker Jelani Jenkins.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Patriots listed as 8.5-point favorites versus the Dolphins, while the game’s total is sitting at 47 according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42.

The New England Patriots went into Miami in the regular-season finale a year ago needing a win to wrap up the top overall seed in the AFC, and were promptly upset by the Dolphins 20-10, forcing them to play on the road in the conference title game. The Patriots face an identical situation on Sunday when they face a much-improved Miami squad that is also in the playoffs.

New England holds a one-game lead over Oakland and can still secure the top seed if the Raiders lose in Denver, but there also is the matter of dropping three straight in South Beach that the Patriots would like to halt. “Going in there and getting a win, I think would be big for us and overall, it’d be a great accomplishment,” safety Devin McCourty said. “But I think, for us, this is a really tough test. We haven’t won down there in three years.” The Dolphins are already assured of the sixth seed, but can move up to No. 5 with a win over the Patriots and a loss by Kansas City. Miami has won three straight overall and five in a row at home, but dropped a 31-24 decision at New England in Week 2.

The Dolphins were a 34-31 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Bills. They covered the +4.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (65) made winners of OVER bettors.

New England won its last outing, a 41-3 result against the Jets on December 24. The Patriots covered in that game as a -17-point favorite, while the 44 combined points took the game UNDER the total.
