Winners of 6 straight, Pats host Dolphins on Sunday

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) After a bumpy start to the 2017 season, the New England Patriots are again the team to beat in the AFC East.

The Patriots (8-2) have overcome a preseason injury to receiver Julian Edelman and season-ending shoulder injury to linebacker Dont'a Hightower to post six straight victories following a 2-2 start .

They will play five of their final six games against division opponents. First up are the Dolphins (4-6), who have lost four straight. Another defeat would give them their longest losing streak since 2011. Miami coach Adam Gase's predecessor, Joe Philbin, never lost five in a row.
