The New England Patriots play the second game of their current three game home stand on Thursday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins. The game will be televised by the NFL Network, and will have CBS’ top announcing crew of Jim Nantz and Phil Simms on the call. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET

The Dolphins (3-3) have been re-energized and playing with passion under new coach Dan Campbell. After limping off to a 1-3 start under Joe Philbin, he was let go and the tough-minded, Campbell has brought physicality back to the team. They routed Tennessee 38-10 and then raced out to a 41-0 halftime lead over Houston before cruising to a 44-26 win.

New England (6-0), had a tough come-from-behind win on Sunday over the New York Jets 30-23. Tom Brady continued his stellar play passing for 355 yards and two touchdowns and was the Patriots leading rusher, adding a one yard touchdown run.

We here at PatsFans.com are continuing our  “Razor’s Edge”  column in 2015 to give a quick break down on some of the key matchups of the game and what you can look for in how the game plays out.

Series History: The Patriots and Dolphins will meet for the 100th time on Thursday night. The series was dominated by the Dolphins in during the middle years especially in Miami but the Patriots under Bill Belichick have turned the tide in recent years.

The Patriots hold a 32-17 advantage in their home games against Miami. The teams have split their matchups the last two seasons with each winning at home. Miami won the season opener last season with the Patriots taking a December matchup in Foxboro.

Here is a look at some of the key matchups and who holds the Razor’s Edge.
