After and exciting victory over the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, the Miami Dolphins must now turn their attention towards the New England Patriots for a Sunday night showdown.. The Patriots may have lost, but they put up a tough fight against the Philadelphia Eagles, who are among the favorites to make the Super Bowl. The Patriots defense caused plenty of problems for the Eagles high powered offense, so it will be interesting to see if Mike McDaniel has any answers when he is calling offensive plays. This should be a pretty good AFC East showdown and will be a good test for the Dolphins.
