NFL schedule 2012: Patriots finish regular season with rival Dolphins

After two disappointing weeks in a row, the Patriots host the Dolphins in the regular season finale Sunday.


The New England Patriots have their last test of the regular season Sunday when the Miami Dolphins come to town.

The Patriots (11-4) will try to finish the season on a high note against the rival Dolphins (7-8), who are just trying to finish the year at .500.

After winning seven straight games, including a big 42-14 win over the Houston Texans, the Patriots have struggled in their last two games. They lost to San Francisco, 41-34, two weeks ago and then nearly coughed up the game against Jacksonville on Sunday. The Patriots won, 23-16, thanks to two interceptions in the final four minutes by safety Patrick Chung.

The Patriots beat the Dolphins in the first matchup this season, 23-16, on Dec. 2.
