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

    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.

    Patriots on fourth down unsuccessful. Brady sacked and fumbles. Hit by Cameron Wake — again!

    Fitting that the game ends with a Brady sack-fumble. Cameron Wake off the edge against Sebastian Vollmer. Offensive line is in trouble.

    Can some explain why Matt Patricia is still def. coor. on this team?

    Pats are 0-1 and everyone else in the AFC East is 1-0. Wow.

    Wake should be considered the player of this game. He has two sacks, three quarterback hits, and a forced fumble.

    Miami gets the ball at the Patriots 14.

    I'd cut Lafell 1st thing tomorrow. I'd even consider cutting Wilfork. He's just another fat guy at this point.

    Brady get sacked & loses the ball - Dolphins recover at the 14 yard line. #NEvsMIA
  • Mikestwocents 9/7/2014 8:04:39 PM
    Nice post play shot to Brady's head by Vernon

    Wonder if he misses Scarnecchia. RT @BruceNV : @ErikFrenz Wonder if BB misses Mankins?
  • Toronto Patsfan 9/7/2014 8:05:12 PM
    Who are u going to replace vince with? The other guys on that line suck worse

    There is going to be a whole lotta of Mankins talk this week.

    Patriots offensive line was horrendous. Patriots defensive line was pathetic. We were really awful tackling and on defense the entire 2nd half. We got some serious problems and Pats next 3 games are Must Wins. We are going to find out how good Belichick and his staff are at coaching over the next week or 2. If we lose to Oakland or Minnesota the season is over.

    Hard to do much of anything when your QB is running for his life - even if the QB is 12.

    not going to yell "sky is falling" but Fins came in with rebut o line, not expected to be tested and yet dominated pats on both sides of line. ugly game for pats, if o line can't get over its issues then pats are in serious trouble. d for pats will be same, giving up lots of yards, occasional stops but looks they have added new touch, bad penalties ! on to minnesota next week, lets hope they don't get access to game film from today

    Patriots offensive line problems go beyond one position. Logan Mankins isn't walking through the door...and it probably wouldn't matter.
  • Toronto Patsfan 9/7/2014 8:06:41 PM
    Yeah, like i said before, we need to get dante out of retirement fast. Obviously, he's the onky guy who can put sh-t on the o-line and come out with gold

    Just cringe to think of this DL as it's currently constituted against Manning or Rodgers.

    Sturgis with the field goal. Dolphins 33, Patriots 20.
    Comment ()
    A 27-yard Dolphins field goal makes it 33-20, Miami. 2:44 to play. #NEvsMIA
  • Dragon 9/7/2014 8:08:22 PM
    The more general issue is a lingering, leftover problem from past year, which is the Pats' tendency to come out of the halftime locker room like zombies. It caught up with them today. They can't do that in a place like South Florida where they always struggle.

    Sturgis hits the 27 yard field goal to extend the lead to 33-20! #NEvsMIA

  • Toronto Patsfan 9/7/2014 8:08:28 PM

    when last time pats outscored 23-0 in a 2nd half? that was beatdown Fins just gave pats. maybe need to put Jimmy in just to keep brady from getting killed, poor guy.

    30 minutes of football from the Pats today. Belichick obviously doesn't excel as a halftime motivator.

    He might gain. 500 yards

    Toronto, think it goes back to the last time Wilfork made a tackle

  • Joe 9/7/2014 8:13:15 PM
    But, but...Shaugnessey said this was the "tomato can" division. Said last week that fans and press were far too cavalier about this game. Reminiscent of the last opening day loss in the sense of a shocking parting of the ways with a popular player (Milloy)

    Maybe miami will give kraft game ball' and he can sell it.

    The Pats caving to the Wilfork hardline now doesn't look so smart. That guy is just plain fat now. Takes getting paid more seriously than anything else.

    Gotta say Joe Dolphins didn't look good we looked horrible

    Pats have plenty of reasons for concern, but shouldn't hit the panic button ... yet.

    Huge plays on offense and defense.

    Our analysts hand out their gameballs. #NEvsMIA
