Welcome to Week 4 in the NFL.

This is a particularly big game for the Patriots as they have started the year 1-2 and the Dolphins come in with a perfect 3-0 record. A loss Sunday would put them three games back in the AFC East and leave them with a lot of questions in terms of the direction things are heading.

Follow along all afternoon for live updates.
