For the second time this season, the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots will be facing off for an AFC East showdown. The last time these two met, the Dolphins came away with the victory on a Sunday night. Even though Miami won, the Patriots made them work for that victory. New England was able to shut down the big play capability of Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill. But the Dolphins ground game was able to flourish during that matchup. It will be interesting to see what sort of defensive scheme Bill Belichick will throw out there today.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
