When this game was still in doubt, the Miami Defense stymied the Patriots offense by getting consistent pressure on Tom Brady and keeping the Dolphins in the game while the Pats D shut down Miami's offense. The Patriots got a late TD to take a 19-0 lead into the half. Tom Brady was excellent in the first half even with the offensive line struggles, throwing two TDs - one to Rob Gronkowski and another to the surprising offensive star of 2015 - Dion Lewis. Lewis caught a key first down on a 3 and 16 to extend a drive that ended with a 47 Yard TD from Gronk.
The second half started with the lone bright spot for the Dolphins. Tannehill drove Miami down the field and scored a TD with relative ease to bring the Dolphins within 19-7. It looked like more of a game and when the Miami D held the Patriots to a field goal on the next possession it appeared Miami was ready to fight.
However, Miami never mounted much offense the rest of the game and Tom Brady went on to throw two TD passes to safety blanket Julian Edelman in the 4th quarter to seal the rout. Miami simply couldn't stop Tom Brady from finding the weaknesses and exploiting the key match-ups.
The Patriots improved to 7-0 on the season and face the Washington Football Team next week in Foxboro. Miami fell to 3-4, effectively ending any chance the team had at challenging New England for the division. The Dolphins will have to ramp up the D if they intend to vie for a playoff spot.
Tom Brady is looking like an MVP candidate and barring injury, seems poised to surpass even his 2007 season. So far in the 2015 campaign, Tom Brady has thrown for 2410 Yards in 7 games with 20 TDs and only one interception. He is playing like a man possessed and many an NFL D probably wishes Goodell didn't piss him off with Deflate-gate. Since they took Tom's footballs away from him, he's unbeaten and simply shredding the league. So much for cheating.
