Yes, the New England Patriots are the class act of the division. But, as Joey Porter likes to continuously remind everyone, the Miami Dolphins are still the defending AFC East champs. And even though Porter had as many tackles as your sister could have pulled off when New England beat Miami four weeks ago, its a known fact that the Pats hate facing the Fins. Heck, Jason Taylor alone has built a Hall of Fame career turning Tom Brady into his own personal hand puppet. But what makes this Sunday nights rematch at LandShark Stadium (2269 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami Gardens) all the more balls-out awesome is that there are playoff implications for both teams. The Dolphins are still within reach of the division lead, and neck-and-neck in the wildcard race. And just when the Patriots thought life would get easier with Ronnie Brown out for the year, now they have Ricky Williams and his amazing feats of badassery to deal with. The showdown commences at 1 p.m. Call 1-800-FINS-TIX or visit miamidolphins.com for ticket info.
