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.
