    Once again Arrington, courtesy of stubhub, was in the front row of a play just to watch

    3 and out again, exactly what pats needed! Fins have no LBs, secondary is medicare at best but brady with no time n pressure is recipe for pats loss

    Vince Wilfork and Joe Vellano back in the lineup.

    Tavon Wilson in at safety for Patrick Chung.

    Interesting to see Rob Ninkovich line up on the same side of the field as Chandler Jones. Jones at 3-4 DE, Ninkovich as 3-4 OLB.

    we can't tackle, cover, or put any pressure on their qb. A radioactive mix of ingredients that 95% of time leads to a loss. WAKE UP PATS!!!

    Tavon Wilson. That'll make the difference.

    Joe Vellano providing some pressure. So there's that.

    You'd think with all that "continuous improvement" gabble that comes out of Foxborough that they'd found a way by now to stop the 3rd Qtr sleepwalk routine.

    Those running lanes for MIA are just embarassing.

    This defense is tough to watch. Once again, absolutely NO pressure on their quarterback and Brady has all of 2 seconds every play.

    They could probably just run all day

    These guys will all be saying "What a great team!" when NE comes back to win in 4th

    Joe Vellano has gotten loose now on a couple of plays. Good to see out of him.

    Poor tackling there by Alfonzo Dennard on Mike Wallace.

    our 3-4 is a mess. We can't stop the run and in the preseason we got eaten alive by the run against our 1st string D. We got some serious problems.

  • Looks like the same #Patriots run defense as last year.
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 7:16:48 PM
    Lamar Miller broke a Joe Vellano tackle for a touchdown. But the Dolphins were flagged for holding.

    The only thing sadder than watching the official end to the Wilfork era is see than there will be no Chandler Jones era

    3-4 is blowing up in Belichick's face right now as we clearly can't stop the run at all

    amazing stats pats haven't forced a punt and almost in 4th qtr, bad throw by T'hil and 2 fumbles stopped drives, pats def and o line in mid season form, collapsing for brady and other team running all over. good sign!

    We are going to get blown out of here unless McDaniels play calling gets amazingly better.

    Why can't they just put Logan Ryan at CB and let him develop? Dennard is good one play, horrible the next.

    17 4th pts, bill obviously got pats motivated for 3rd qtr. What was all hype about def being one of bill's best since 04? looks exactly same as last year!

    Super disappointed in Ryan Tannehill. He's not even making this interesting. Misfires on fade to Charles Clay in end zone.

    Bad throw or easy 7
    Comment ()
  • #Dolphins have 13 unanswered points, could be 21 if Tannehill could capitalize in the red zone.
  • Dolphins take a 23-20 lead with a 22-yard Sturgis field goal. 2:38 to play in the 3rd. #NEvsMIA
  • Sturgis hits the 22 yard field goal to take the lead!

    MIA - 23
    NE - 20

    #NEvsMIA #StrongerTogether
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 7:20:27 PM
    Another field goal there from Sturgis. Dolphins take the lead, 23-20, with Sturgis converting from 22 yards out. 2:38 left in third.

    It's a disaster on both sides of the ball right now. This is a HUGE series for the Pats offense right now.

    sorry, pats didn't give up td, so 13 straight pts, pats fizzled last yr in miami giving up 10 pt lead, just like this game. lot of missed opportunities in 1st 1/2. better protect brady for at least a few 1st downs, def is done for day.

    I'm wondering why Miami even bothers to pass?
