(Reuters) - The New England Patriots clinched the AFC East divisional title for the sixth straight year thanks to a 41-13 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

The victory takes the Patriots to a 11-3 record on the season despite divisional rivals the Buffalo Bills upsetting the Green Bay Packers 21-13 to move to 8-6.

New England are looking to return to the Super Bowl following their loss to the New York Giants in the 2011 season as they aim for a fourth franchise Super Bowl championship win.

Miami fell to 7-7 on the season with the loss.
