Note­wor­thy: A Dol­phins win would be the team’s first 4-0 start since 1995, and sev­enth 4-0 start in fran­chise his­tory. … Each time Mi­ami has started a sea­son 4-0, the Dol­phins have reached the play­offs, win­ning the di­vi­sion five times, the AFC twice, and the Su­per Bowl once. … The Dol­phins are try­ing to win their first two AFC East road games for the first time since 2010. … Ryan Tan­nehill is 11-5 as the Dol­phins start­ing quar­ter­back un­der coach Adam Gase. … Dol­phins lead­ing re­ceiver Danny Amen­dola (11 rec., 100 yds.) is mak­ing his re­turn to New Eng­land, where he won two Su­per Bowls in five sea­sons with the Pa­tri­ots. … Dol­phins corner­back Xavien Howard has seven in­ter­cep­tions in his last eight games dat­ing back to last sea­son, in­clud­ing two against Pa­tri­ots quar­ter­back Tom Brady dur­ing that stretch. … The Dol­phins are 2-14 at Gil­lette Sta­dium, with their last vic­tory in New Eng­land com­ing in 2008. … A Dol­phins loss would make Bill Belichick the third coach to win 280 games in league his­tory, and be win No. 300 for Pa­tri­ots owner Robert Craft. Both to­tals in­clude post­sea­son games.
