    That was Miami's first punt of the game. Kind of tells you how things have been going.

  • Some lucky breaks on that drive to give the Patriots a quick 3-and-out. Patriots can thank the Dolphins for keeping them in this game.
  • Patriots 2014 offensive line = Dolphins 2013 offensive line.
  • Zuri Berry 9/7/2014 7:36:43 PM
    Dan Connolly and Nate Solder give up the sack on Brady.

    Didn't even realize it, but Moreno is over 100 yards already. Has 111 on 17 carries.

    Aside from having no O-line and no D-line, we're in great shape!

    Mdaniels playcalling still awful. That 2nd down bomb was a disgrace. O line pulls through on 3rd down and Pats in a world of hurt. Pats offensive and defensive lines are disgusting today

    What can Pats do to get back in this? It's 3 points but feels like 21. I just don't think we have the personnel on the offensive or defensive lines

    Still only down 3

    Jerod Mayo on the delayed blitz gets Tannehill. Helped a bit by Ninkovich.

  • Mayo sacks Tannehill for a 9-yard loss. 3rd & 12 from the 9 now...
  • Dragon 9/7/2014 7:40:39 PM
    Hey, Freeman. I see you're still banging the "playcalling" gong again this year. Yeah, it's totally Josh's fault the O-line isn't doing its job

    Revis perfectly times the pass breakup on the Tannehill throw to Mike Wallace.

  • Nice sack on the blitz by Jerod Mayo, the #Patriots first sack of the game.

    Have to give credit on the delayed blitz call. Now how about some o creativity?

    Ridley catching passes is so rare. Always interesting to see these tendency breakers.

    Brandon LaFell crushed Jimmy Wilson on the pick. Gets called for offensive pass interference. Worse than Welker hit on Talib.

    yeah o line is issue, brady can't even set up screens so that pats can exploit lack of Fins Lbs. if he could, pats would be moving ball again. does not look like makings of a good o line, i know bill is all about saving money but won't win if brady is under pressure like this, impossible!

    Actually, it is josh fault about o-line? He's the fing ofensive coordinator

    Hard to be creative when the O-line can't open holes or protect.
