The two AFC East rivals last met in week 2 in Foxborough with the Patriots winning the game 31-24.
For the Patriots, a win defends the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage across the postseason, as well as an 8-0 record in road games. Deja Vu for New England as they have been in this position before, losing to Miami in Week 17 last season.
They feature one of the best rushing attacks in the league, averaging 116.8 yards per game, good for eighth in the NFL.

Miami Dolphins are guaranteed to be back in the playoffs, win or lose, for the first time since 2008.
Dolphins have won nine of its last 10 games, including three successively. The Dolphins also have beaten the Patriots in each of the last three encounters in Miami. A win over New England on Sunday, conjugated with a San Diego victory over Kansas City, would enable the Dolphins to move up to the No. 5 seed in the AFC.
