Miami Dolphins dominated the New England Patriots during the 1970s and the 1990s, but there were some notable moments as well, including a game now known as the Snowplow Game. Fortunes changed when Tom Brady became the franchise quarterback for the Patriots, and since then, the Patriots have virtually dominated the AFC, especially the AFC East. Miami did pose more of a challenge to the Brady-led Patriots in the 2000s, however, winning more games against them than the Bills or Jets did during that decade. Miami and New England are also the only two franchises to have posted undefeated regular season records since the NFL-AFL merger, with Miami going 14-0 in 1972 and New England going 16-0 in 2007, but only the 1972 Dolphins were able to win the Super Bowl.

Starting in 1986, the rivalry was a little bit more even, with the Pats having a 7-game winning streak from 1986 to 1988. The Dolphins then took over the rivalry once again, winning 13 of the next 15 matchups between the 2 teams. Both teams had great quarterbacks in the 90s, with the Patriots having Drew Bledsoe and the Dolphins with Dan Marino. The Dolphins continued to dominate the rivalry through the late 1990s with the Dolphins sweeping the Patriots in back to back years, 1999 and 2000.

Miami is one of 10 teams with a winning overall record against New England (the others being the Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers, and Washington Redskins). However, since 2003, the Patriots dominated the rivalry, even though they have lost a little bit more against the Dolphins than against the other AFC East teams during this time period. In 2004, one of the most famous moments in the rivalry happened where the Dolphins, 2–11 at the time, upset the 12–1 Patriots in a game that has been known as “The Night That Courage Wore Orange”. In 2008, the rivalry briefly intensified when the Dolphins became the only team other than the Patriots since 2003 to win the division. In week 3 of the aforementioned 2008 season, the Dolphins used the Wildcat formation to throw the Patriots off and went on to upset them, 38–13.

Also notable is the fact that the Dolphins and Patriots are the only NFL teams to post undefeated regular season records following the NFL-AFL merger. The 1972 Dolphins finished with a 14–0 regular season record and went on to win Super Bowl VIII, finishing the only complete perfect season in NFL history, while the 2007 Patriots were the first team to go undefeated in the regular season since the league expanded to 16 games, but famously lost Super Bowl XLII against the New York Giants.
