Patriots vs Dolphins Week 8 Prediction

NFL coaches who have struggling teams entering an upcoming bye week may be feeling a little nervous the remainder of the season. After all, Miami appears to have fixed its disastrous start to the 2015 season with a bye week firing. And after two straight dominating wins under interim coach Dan Campbell, Miami appears ready for a much more difficult test in the Dolphins-Patriots TNF game.

CBS and the NFL Network will co-broadcast the TNF Dolphins-Patriots game from Gillette Stadium in Foxborough at 8:25 p.m. Eastern Thursday.

Miami opened 1-3 with a couple of woeful performances before the bye week firing of Joe Philbin. Miami now will enter the Dolphins-Patriots game with a 3-3 record after crushing Tennessee 38-10 and Houston 44-26 the past two games, and Miami set a franchise record by scoring 41 points in the first half against Houston. New England meanwhile remained undefeated with a Week 7 30-23 win against the Jets.

The Dolphins and Patriots will play for the 100th time Thursday in a series that dates back to the AFL and 1966. Miami leads the all-time series 52-47, but New England has dominated the series since 2007, winning 12 of the last 16 meetings. Miami has not won at New England since 2008, even though these AFC East Division rivals play home-and-home every season.

Brady has been especially tough on the Dolphins in the recent history of this series, and hes off to another strong start in 2015. Brady was supposed to miss the first four games of the season with a league suspension stemming from last seasons use of footballs that werent inflated to NFL standards, but the overturning of that suspension in the judicial system just prior to the start of the 2015 regular season has served to motivate Brady and the Patriots even more than usual.

Brady threw for at least 275 yards in each of the first six games for New England, and he figures to be ready for another big game in the Dolphins-Patriots contest.

Last season the Dolphins and Patriots split two games, with Miami pulling the upset at home in the season-opener, 33-20, and with New England winning at home in mid-December, 41-13. Brady threw for 536 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the two games. His Miami counterpart at quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, had 524 yards with three scores and three interceptions in the pair of contests.

Certainly, if Miami is going to return to its glory days, where the Dolphins won two Super Bowls and appeared in five of the NFL championship games, Miami will need to find a way to compete with its divisional foe New England, which has appeared in six Super Bowls over the past 14 seasons, winning four NFL championships. During that time, New England has won 12 AFC East titles, while Miami has won one.
