    That's Brandon Bolden doing things that James White was doing in preseason. White, as you know, listed as inactive. No injuries.

    Patriots moving fast. And they're cycling through skill position players quickly. This is the confusion I anticipated they would bring.

    A Gronkowski touchdown gives the Patriots a 17-7 lead. #NEvsMIA
    Some sketchy play on the offensive line at times in this game, but certainly not on that touchdown. Brady had all day in the pocket.

    #Patriots turn Dennard's interception into a 94-yard scoring drive:

  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 6:00:23 PM
    Edelman has five receptions for 74 yards. Killing it.

    Gronkowski now has 43 receiving touchdowns for the #Patriots - 4th most in team history.

    Chung back in at safety for Patriots.

    Gronkowski seems to be on a pretty strict 50-percent snap diet so far. Through two drives, he played 8/17. Through four drives, 18/35.
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 6:02:33 PM
    Vince Wilfork and Joe Vellano back on the field as well.

    Moreno brought down by McCourty after a 15-yard run. He's all fired up. Ran for 200+ yards against Patriots last year in regular season.

    In this game, Patriots have two helmet-on-ball hits, two fumbles, two recoveries.
    Darrelle Revis recovers a Miami fumble forced by Logan Ryan. #Defense #Patriots #NEvsMIA
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 6:06:05 PM
    Fumble on the play by Lamar Miller. Darrelle Revis recovers. So far, three turnovers by Miami.

    Hitting is great. DL line play, not so much.

    Dolphins 30, Patriots 20. 3:29 left in this one. Going to be real tough for any kind of comeback.

    #StrongerTogether #NEvsMIA…
    A Knowshon Moreno TD makes if 30-20, Dolphins, with 3:29 to play in the game. #NEvsMIA
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 7:58:42 PM
    Knowshon Moreno with 129 yards and a touchdown. Probably the Dolphins' player of the game.
