Inside the Game: Saints vs Dolphins series history

The Saints and Dolphins have met 11 times in the regular season with Miami holding a 6-5 all-time series edge.

  The Saints and Dolphins have met 11 times in the regular season with Miami holding a 6-5 all-time series edge. The Saints captured the last contest, a 38-17 victory on Monday, highlighted by standout performances on offense by QB Drew Brees and RB Darren Sproles. Brees completed 30 of 39 passes for 413 yards with four touchdowns, zero turnovers and a 144.5 passer rating. Sproles finished with 222 all-purpose yards, as he carried four times for 28 yards and also had seven receptions for a game-high 114 yards with one touchdown, while the New Orleans defense did their part by forcing four turnovers. This will be the first time the two teams meet in London, the only other time the Saints having played there was in a 37-32 win over the San Diego Chargers on October 26, 2008.        The two teams first faced off in 1970, as the Saints lost 21-10 in a game played at the historic Orange Bowl. The Saints would lose two more contests to the Dolphins before finally breaking through with a 17-7 victory on October 2, 1983 at the Superdome. The Saints won their first and only road game at the Dolphins in a 46-34 victory on October 25, 2009 at Land Shark Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla., when New Orleans matched their biggest comeback in franchise history when they rebounded from a 24-3 deficit with five seconds left in the first half.:
