Hi, everyone ! Our Dolphins travel 1254 miles northeast to play the AFC East Divson leading and 5-2 New England Patriots. A win today would even the Fins record to 4-4. Patriots are returning back to NFL action after their bye week.
Today will be the 85th regular season meeting between the teams. Dolphins lead the all-time series 48-36, but are 18-27 when they play at New England. Both teams split road wins during the 2008 regular season, with the Fins defeatng the Patriots 38-13 at Gillette Stadium back on September 21, and ending their 21-game regular season winnng streak at the time. Fins later lost in the rematch at 28-48 at Landshark Stadium on November 23, highlighted by Matt Cassell's 415 yards passing, and 3 TD's.
Greg Gunbel and Dan Dierdorf will announce the live TV game commentary for the NFL On CBS's primary early doubleheader game on HD, with WFOR CBS 4 televising locally in Miami.
Former Fins Jimmy Cefalo, Jim Mandich, and Joe Rose will also announce the live radio game play-by-play andn analysis on flagshp station WQAM SportsRadio 560AM, and the Dolphins Radio Network.
Local weather forecast for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff at Gllette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, is Sunny and Clear skies at 61 degrees, 10% precipitaton, 50% humidity, and mild west/northwest winds at 8 miles per hour.
Visiting Dolphins will dress in their white jerseys and aqua pants, while the host Patriots will wear their navy blue jerseys, and grey pants.
I wish our Dolphins to play safe and smart football today with a productive offense and swarming defense, no penalties, turnovers, and leave New England with no serious injuries. Let's see our Fins under the leadership of Head Coach Tony Sparano and QB Chad Henne even their record after today to 4-4, and GO DOLPHINS!!!!!
