The Miami Dolphins played their final game of the 2016 regular season and lost to the New England Patriots 35-14 at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday. Miami finished with a 10-6 record and already qualified for a wild card position in the prior week.
The Dolphins will travel to Pittsburgh and face the Steelers at Heinz Field in a first round playoff game next Sunday. Miami has not participated in a postseason game since 2008 when they captured the AFC East Division title and lost at home to the Baltimore Ravens. The Fins have not won a playoff game since 2000 against the Indianapolis Colts.
