Patriots vs. Dolphins: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

Marc Serota

The Dolphins take on the Patriots for the first time in 2012 as Ryan Tannehill and Miami aim to stay alive in the AFC East race.

With the Miami Dolphins chasing a spot in the playoffs and hanging around the AFC East division race, they'll welcome the New England Patriots to town for a key late-season divisional showdown on Sunday afternoon.

Quarterback Tom Brady and the Patriots (8-3) are three games up on the Dolphins (5-6) with just four games remaining on the season after Week 13 action concludes. A Dolphins' victory would mean much to Miami's remaining hopes of making a run at a playoff spot.

The Patriots are fresh off a long rest after a dominating victory over the New York Jets on Thanksgiving night while the Dolphins bested Seattle last weekend, 24-21, on the strength of touchdowns from quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Reggie Bush.

The divisional rivals have yet to meet in 2012, but will play again just a few weeks from now in the teams' season finales in Foxboro in Week 17.

Date and Time: Dec. 2, 1 p.m. ET

Location: Sun Life Stadium, Miami, Fla.

TV: CBS

Odds: The Patriots are favored by nine points on the road
