    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

    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.

    Really weird that Belichick and company seem unsure about which combination of offensive linemen they want to use.

    Patriots punt team still looks like it needs work up front. Not sure if that's a Danny Aiken issue or something else. Consistency will help.

    Malcolm Butler entering the game for the first time. Replaces Alfonzo Dennard.

    OK, here's another wrinkle: In nickel packages, Chung lines up at the slot CB with Kyle Arrington and now Logan Ryan back deep at safety.

  • Hightower getting plenty of chances to rush the passer in this game and he's getting some pressure. Roughing the passer that time, though.
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 6:13:53 PM
    Mike Wallace, who beat Revis on that throw, was out of bounds on the throw. Pretty clear.

    Butler laying off Hartline - looked like pass D from the last few years

  • Oh man, that was close. Revis got toasted on the double move by Mike Wallace, but the latter couldn't keep his feet in the end zone.
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 6:14:52 PM
    OK, another interesting wrinkle: Ninkovich was working as the LOLB in 3-4 in nickel/dime situation. Had been first player off the field.

    defense despite the 3 forced turnovers still looks weak

    Hartline is all upset. But that was a fantastic play by Malcolm Butler to make a play on the ball.

    So far, Wallace has been vacationing on Revis Island.

  • Malcolm Butler got away with some contact on that one. So much for the rules emphasis, eh?
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 6:17:27 PM
    Tannehill throw to Wallace in the end zone gets broken up by Revis. It's a battle. And it ain't over yet.

    Caleb Sturgis with a 38-yard field goal. Patriots 17, Dolphins 10.

  • Caleb Sturgis connects on the 38 yard field goal!

    Patriots' lead narrows to 17-10. #NEvsMIA

  • Dolphins hit a 38-yard field goal with 2 mins to play in the half. Pats lead it 17-10. #NEvsMIA
  • If Mike Wallace had realized the play was still live, he may have caught that for a TD. Instead, #Dolphins kick FG. #Patriots lead 17-10.
  • On a non-AFC East note: I'm loving my pick of Brandin Cooks for Offensive Rookie of the Year.
  • Freeman 9/7/2014 6:20:40 PM
    we need to get at least a FG before half here, Miami gets ball to start 2nd

    Tannehill is giving our bad defense the chance to look mediocre

    Patrick Chung takes the ball out of the end zone to the 26. 30-yard return. That's a win for him.

    Why am I worried when Chung is returning a KO?
