Dolphins at Patriots: A look at the series history

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins visit the New England Patriots this Sunday. We take a look back at the history between these two AFC East rivals.

The Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots renew their AFC East rivalry this weekend, with the Dolphins head north for the Foxboro leg of the home-and-home series. The two teams have faced each other 92 times in the regular season, starting back in 1966 with the Dolphins hosting the Boston Patriots in Week 11 of the South Florida franchise's inaugural season. Boston won both of the games this year, but the Dolphins actually hold the all time record advantage now, 50-45.

The two teams have also squared off three times in the playoffs, with New England claimed two of the three. Now, let's take a look at some of the facts from the history between the two clubs:
