SERIES TREND: The Dolphins won the first eight games in the series, which has featured six games decided by seven points or less, including the last two meetings.
HISTORY LESSON: The Dolphins' last visit to Lambeau Field produced a thrilling 23-20 overtime victory thanks in large part to the efforts of defensive end **Cameron Wake**. In his second year with the Dolphins, Wake came up with three sacks, including one that ended Green Bay's one possession in overtime. Aaron Rodgers had scored on a 1-yard run with 16 seconds left to help Green Bay tie the game at 20-20, but Dan Carpenter won it in overtime with a 44-yard field goal after a 26-yard drive. It would be the Packers' only home loss in a season that ended with them winning the Super Bowl.
GREEN BAY'S RECORD: 3-4-1
LAST GAME: Lost 31-17 at New England
OVERVIEW: The Packers entered the season expected to contend for a playoff spot, if for no other reason than the presence of six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers has pretty much done his part, leading the Packers to late game-winning scores against Chicago and San Francisco, but it overall has been a disappointing season so far. One example was a late fumble on a kickoff return that clinched a 29-27 loss against the Los Angeles Rams and kept Rodgers from having a chance to engineer a late comeback. Running back Aaron Jones is averaging a league-best 6 yards per carry, but he's never had more than 14 attempts in a game this season. Perhaps the biggest problem, though, has been the defense, which has allowed between 29 and 31 points each of the past seven games except for a 22-0 victory against the Buffalo Bills in Week 4.
