New England Patriots Victorious 27-17 over Miami Dolphins

Written by 
The New England Patriots improved their record to 6-2 today with a 27-17 victory today over the Miami Dolphins.  It was not pretty at times especially in the first half. The Patriots did a fine job at halftime making adjustments to an atrocious game plan.  To start the game the defense was able to force a three and out by the Fins. Brady gave the ball right back with a poorly thrown interception. The offense couldn't get out of its own way for much of the first half as they only had 59 total yards.  The best offensive player for the Patriots was Stevan Ridley. Yet for some reason he didn't get his first touch until the second quarter. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels continues trying to get a spread look going despite little to no success. Ridley touched the ball only five times but picked up 21 yards and two first downs on those carries. Brandon Bolden continues to get starter reps even though he produces next to nothing.  To start the second half the Pats went three and out on two incomplete Brady passes and a seven yard Ridley run.  The game looked like it might be taking a turn for never land until the dolphins hit the upright on a field goal attempt.   From there on out the offense went to a more balanced attack using good running to set up the play action pass. Brady made it 17-10 staying in the pocket and hitting rookie Aaron Dobson with a very pretty touch down pass. The defense took over from there as rookie Logan Ryan had a strip sack of Ryan Tannehill. The strip was recovered by Rob Ninkovich and less than two minutes later it was tied at 17.    The defense came to play in the second half collecting six sacks and three turnovers.  They got aggressive and it was just what the doctor ordered. They shut out the Dolphins in the second half and did all that was needed to help the offense get in a groove. The balance on offense kept Brady upright even with Sebastian Vollmer getting carted off the field. To no surprise the Patriots improved to 6-0 when running the ball more than thirty times.  Next up for the Patriots is a matchup against the Steelers.  Somehow someway this team continues to find ways to win. They are 6-2 even though it doesn't always feel that way.
