NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: Just like in previous years, the New England Patriots face the prospect of finishing out the AFC East race early, leaving them primed to knock off wannabes and coast to the playoffs. It seems to happen every November and December. Entering Week 13, Bill Belichick's team has won five in a row, scoring more than 29 points in each game and showing signs of coming into its own. Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins have crashed back to Earth after hinting at some promise and making a cameo in the playoff race. They lost three in a row before last week's win over Seattle. The Dolphins can completely right the ship against the Pats, whom they play again in Week 17. Rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill has impressed, specifically under pressure, but this won't be easy.
