"In his nine games against Miami since 2006, Brady has consistently ranged from very good to extraordinary. Consider:
• In his past seven games against the Dolphins, Brady completed 68 percent of his passes, averaged 315 yards and threw 17 touchdowns and just four interceptions. The Patriots won six of those games, excluding the two Brady missed with an injury that cost him all but one game of the 2008 season.
• Brady’s numbers are absurd in his past four games at Sun Life Stadium: 91 of 126 (72.2 percent), with an average of 344 yards passing per game, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions. His ratings in those games: 121.6, 107.1, 101.5 and a perfect 158.3.
He threw for 517 yards in the Patriots’ season-opening 38-24 win here last season, then passed for 304 in Miami’s 27-24 loss in New England on Christmas Eve.
And Sunday, he will be facing a Dolphins secondary that is still experimenting at one corner spot. In the wake of Nolan Carroll’s four-penalty game in Buffalo, the Dolphins split time between Carroll and R.J. Stanford on Sunday against the Seahawks. Carroll played 31 snaps, Stanford 28.
“We felt [Stanford] earned some opportunities in practice,” Philbin said. “He did some good things out there. There are still some things he has to do better.”
Should the Dolphins dial up blitzes or should they use extra defensive backs in coverage?

They are a little nervous down there about hosting the Patriots who are averaging 43.8 ppg in their five game winning streak.
