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.
