After orchestrating a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter en route to an upset win over the Bills in Week 7, the Patriots will try to carry that momentum over into another divisional showdown against the Dolphins on Sunday afternoon at Hard Rock Stadium.

The Patriots (2-5), looking to secure back-to-back wins for the first time this season, will kick things off in Miami (5-2) at 1 p.m.

Despite their comeback win over Buffalo, the Patriots will have their hands full against Tua Tagovailoa, Tyreek Hill, and an explosive Miami offense. A banged-up New England defense will need to stand tall, but Mac Jones and Co. will also need to prepare for the return of cornerback Jalen Ramsey on the Dolphins’ defense.

11:32: Here are the Patriots inactives:

Uche and Lowe were ruled out ahead of Sunday, while Tyquan Thornton joins the inactive list after a quiet showing last week. JuJu Smith-Schuster is active, so we’ll see how both him and Demario Douglas share reps together. The rookie has been more impressive this season.
