Patriots vs. Dolphins live stream: A must-win for New England

Patriots

The New England Patriots head to South Beach as underdogs for their Week 15 matchup vs. the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

It's the first time since 2013 that the Patriots aren't favored in the AFC East showdown. In fact, New England has been favored in 33 of its last 34 games against Miami.

The Dolphins (8-5) are primed for a postseason berth while the Patriots (6-7) will need to pull off the upset in order to keep their already-slim playoff hopes alive. New England is looking to bounce back from a 24-3 blowout loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Curran's Patriots-Dolphins Preview: Expecting a defensive battle

The Patriots will be shorthanded Sunday as running back Damien Harris and wide receiver Donte Moncrief already have been ruled out. Veteran wideout Julian Edelman also won't be active as the team reportedly will not activate him from injured reserve.

Dolphins rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will look to build off last week's solid performance vs. Kansas City in which he threw for 316 yards and two touchdowns. As for Patriots QB Cam Newton, he'll have to be far better than he was vs. L.A. when he threw for 119 yards and a pick-six before being benched in the fourth quarter for Jarrett Stidham.

Here's how and when to watch Patriots vs. Dolphins in Week 15.
