At long last it's gameday! The New England Patriots are in Miami to meet the Dolphins on NFL opening weekend. If your are a Pats fan, you will like most of the numbers and stats leading into the game...

- The Patriots have won 10 straight opening day games. Miami's record during this time on opening day is   3-7.

-  The Pats have won 10 of the last 11 AFC East titles. The Dolphins won the division that one year (2008) the Pats did not win.

-  The last time the Patriots and Fins played a day game in Miami to open the season was 1996. It was the debut of a brand new Dolphins coach, Jimmy Johnson., and he beat the Pats 24-10

-  Interestingly enough, the Patriots are 31-17 at Foxbro against the Dophins but 14-34 at Miami.

-  Should be about 82-degrees and humid at kickoff in Miami - but you knew that, right?
