In most seasons it would be obvious to say the 7-6 Miami Dolphins and 10-3 New England Patriots are teams going in different directions. This season it’s really worth pointing out, as their records and emotional states are really at polar opposites. Miami and New England historically trade games, and the same is likely to hold true this year. You can watch the Patriots game live against the Dolphins on TV or watch Dolphins vs Patriots live online free stream as well.
Kickoff for the Dolphins vs Patriots game is 1pm EST / 10am PST. Fans can watch Patriots game live today as it’s played in Gillette Stadium, where Tom Brady has been undefeated for two seasons against divisional opponents. No wonder the Patriots are 7.5-point favorites over the Dolphins.
The Patriots and Dolphins last met in the Week 1 season opener for both teams. The Dolphins burst out of the gate with a 33-20 win in Miami. Just weeks later, with the Patriots struggling (by their standards), bandwagon fans began questioning whether the time was right to trade Tom Brady. Since then the Patriots have become one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl. And yes, that path goes right through Tom Brady.
Though not the dominant force he’s been, Brady still has the sixth-best QBR this season. That’s in large part to the incredible play of tight end Rob Gronkowski. Ironically, the Patriots may end up having better success as we watch Patriots live online free or on TV with their run game. Earlier this season Miami’s run defense was second in the league, but the Dolphins have allowed more than 650 yards rushing in their past three games and dropped to eight against the run, eighth overall.
After his breakout game against the Colts, Patriots RB Jonas Gray was predicted to do the heavy lifting on the ground. Yet as we watch the Dolphins Patriots game online live streaming or on TV it’s LeGarrette Blount who will see the majority of the reps. The Pats signed Blount almost immediately after the Steelers waved him for a poor attitude and leaving the field and locker room early after a game.
While the Patriots look to Blount, Brady and Gronk to lead their offense, the Dolphins will look to QB Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill lit-up the Patriots in Week 1, and since then has found a groove with rookie wide receiver Jarvis Landry. They will face a tougher test as we watch the Patriots game live today rather than in Week 1, as New England cornerback Brandon Browner has returned to team-up with Darrelle Revis on the outside.
