Recent history has seen quarterback Tom Brady pull the New England Patriots back from the brink of certain defeat more times than their opponents care to count. Today however, their last minute push for the win failed in Miami as the Dolphins’ defense stepped up and picked Brady off in the end zone.
The final score was 24-20. The Dolphins are in the hunt for a playoff berth, and the Patriots have already clinched a spot. The Patriots fall to 10-4, and the Dolphins improve to 8-6, keeping their playoff hopes alive. Miami has now won 5 of their last 7 games. The Patriots are the 2nd seed in the AFC behind the Denver Broncos who are 11-3 after losing to the San Diego Chargers on Thursday Night Football.
