The Gillette Stadium will serve as the perfect scenario for the clash between AFC East leaders, the New England Patriots (10-3 overall record) as the team host the game versus the AFC East second place – the Miami Dolphins. Miami’s division rivalry with New England dates back to 1966, when the Dolphins were established as an expansion franchise in the American Football League.
As many NFL experts said this will be a game to remember. After a 2-game road trip to Green Bay and San Diego, the New England Patriots will be back home on Sunday afternoon when they face the Miami Dolphins. It’s the first of a three-game stretch that has the Patriots facing all three of their division rivals to finish the 2014 regular season.
The Dolphins currently hold a 7-6 record, putting them in a tie with the Buffalo Bills for second place in the AFC East, three games behind the 10-3 Patriots. With a victory, the Patriots will clinch their 12th AFC East title in the past 14 seasons. Miami is looking to finish above .500 for the first time since since 2008, when they won the division with an 11-5 record. source: http://boston.cbslocal.com/
Some of the Patriots players have missed practices due to discomforts or injuries like running back LeGarrette Blount. In Blount´s case he had a court hearing for a pot charge in Pittsburgh. Rookie defensive lineman Dominique Easley (knee) also missed practice. Defensive end Rob Ninkovich (heel) is a new addition to the team’s injury report, as he was a limited participant at practice.
Defensive end Chandler Jones (hip), long snapper Danny Aiken (concussion), starting left guard Dan Connolly (ankle), wide receivers Julian Edelman (thigh) and Brandon LaFell (shoulder), rookie offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (ankle), linebacker Dont’a Hightower (shoulder), running back Shane Vereen (ankle) and linebacker Chris White (ankle) were all limited participants, too. source: http://espn.go.com/

Later on, the action moves to the West Coast as the AFC West second place – San Diego Chargers (8-5 overall record) will be facing off the AFC West Conference leaders the Denver Broncos and their impressive 10-3 record at Qualcomm Stadium.
With Jay Cutler and Kyle Orton no longer around to use as chew toys, the Chargers have struggled at home against the Broncos, losing 3 straight. Their last victory over the Broncos at Qualcomm came in a 35-14 rout on Nov. 22, 2010. Furthermore, the Chargers’ offense has enjoyed success against the Broncos by grinding the clock. But it has not run the ball well, and is o-4 this season when not reaching 300 yards of total offense. source: denverpost.com
