Dolphins coach Joe Philbin vs. Patriots coach Bill Belichick

This is the biggest game of Philbin's career. Philbin has to show he can lead his team to a tough December victory over the AFC East bullies. The Dolphins haven't won a game this meaningful in years and it's up to Philbin to both outwit Belichick and have his players focused. Belichick has to overcome the loss of TE Rob Gronkowski, but he has QB Tom Brady and years of experience in big games.<p>
