    Looks like Brady tried to force it in there to Gronk.

    Ryan Wendell flagged for a personal foul face mask.

    Brady with a screen pass to Edelman on third down. Looks like a long field goal for Gostkowski.

    Stephen Gostkowski is good from 47 yards out. Patriots 10, Dolphins 7.

    Gostkowski's field goal is good.

    Patriots lead 10-7. #NEvsMIA

    #Patriots take a 10-7 lead on a 47-yard field goal. No problem on the snap by Danny Aiken that time.

    Wendell and Connolly both with miscues on that drive. Makes the debate over OL early in the preseason look precient.

    Line looks pretty shaky so far, but G picking up where he left off last year!

    Sealver Siliga, in his first play, makes a play on the screen pass to Lamar Miller.

    Siliga lined up at the nose tackle. Also, Dominique Easley in at 3-4 DE.

    Mike Wallace with the nice catch, looks like with Revis in coverage.

    End of first quarter.

    Early takeaway: Looks like Patriots are still tinkering with the offensive line.

    Still no rush

    Darrelle Revis got beat on the 22-yard catch by Mike Wallace on a crossing pattern.
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 5:45:21 PM
    I'd add that Easley's insertion looks more like a trial run after missing the preseason. Like, what can the kid do?

    For those asking about the pass rush, the Patriots were definitely using a contain on a few plays there.

    Cushion off the line. RT @KBevans87 : @ErikFrenz pick? Speed?
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 5:46:41 PM
    We're in the second quarter. Also interesting to see Tavon Wilson cycle in. The Patriots are definitely tinkering with their safeties too.

    Tommy Kelly would have helped there.

    Interception by Alfonzo Dennard. Really terrible pass by Ryan Tannehill. Should've been an easy touchdown after Dennard was beat.

    Alfonzo Dennard with an INTERCEPTION! #NEvsMIA #PatsBall
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 5:48:15 PM
    Patriots take over at their own 6.

    Hightower just smoked Tannehill while he was stepping into that throw. Dennard turned around to find an underthrown ball and easy INT.
  • Toronto Patsfan 9/7/2014 5:49:20 PM
    Kelly's washed up. Tannehill still in 2013 form!

    Two early TOs by Patriots D - promising for the "new look D", even though the second was really Tannehill's fault.

    Need along drive now!

    Ryan Wendell back in at center. Doesn't look like a rotation is in place. Connolly still at RG. Cannon still at LG. Devey odd man out.

    Cameron Wake brings the pressure right into Brady's face. No fault on oline there.

    Nifty run by Shane Vereen. Gets a first down for the Patriots.

    Shane Vereen with the nice move to elude Olivier Vernon in space. Kenbrell Thompkins with a good block to set the perimeter.
  • Toronto Patsfan 9/7/2014 5:52:26 PM
    Great run! Whats with the bad footing there, tho?

    There was a football game last night, some soccer, and another event at Sun Life in the past two days. Something to pay attention to.

    That was an impressive catch but we saw those catches all the time during training camp. All. The. Time.
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 5:53:50 PM
    Nice pitch and catch from Brady to Edelman for 44 yards. Edelman fights through the contact to bring it in.

    Edelman with a 44-yard reception from Brady. #Incredelman
