FOXBORO -- The Dolphins know they aren't in Miami anymore.

Today's high is expected to peak at 54 degrees. A chilly 13 mile-per-hour wind will add an extra bite to the air. The 10 Dolphins players getting warmed up on the field are all wearing long sleeves and long pants under their gear.

The sun is out in full force, however. It's a perfect fall day for football as far as New Englanders are concerned.

The Patriots will hope to capitalize at home and maintain their lead in the AFC East. At 5-2, they're one game ahead of the Jets; however, both teams have 2-1 divisional records. So a New England loss and New York win would give the Jets the tiebreaker edge at this early stage of the season. The Dolphins can also insert themselves into the race with a victory today; they're 3-3 overall and 0-1 in the division.

New York plays Cincinnati at 4:05 p.m.
