« Is Jason Allen the truth or a fraud? We find out soon | Main | Dolphins lead Pats 7-0 going to 2nd quarter »

Live blog of Dolphins versus Pats here

The Dolphins are rockin' the aqua tops and white pants tonight on Monday Night Football. The field is rockin' real sod again following last night's season-finale for the Florida Marlins. That means there are strange, brown, uneven patches from about the 30 yard line going in to the west end zone here at Sun Life Stadium.

I expect a high-scoring game.

I simply don't see how the Patriots will be able to stop the Dolphins running game. I know they will try. I know they will present multiple fronts that could include the dreaded eighth defender. But I just think the Dolphins have seen so much of it, they will be able to move the ball on the ground if they stick to it.

I also think the Dolphins will be able to pass the ball. The Patriots have shuffled their defensive backfield this week, benching both cornerback Darius Butler and safety Brandon Meriweather. They can be exploited.

And, obviously, I think the Patriots will be able to move the ball on Miami. I think Tom Brady can find the holes in the Miami secondary but the truth is the Patriots now think themselves something of a good running team with Benjarvus Green-Ellis in the backfield.

They think they can run it against a Miami team that has given up over 140 rushing yards each of the past two weeks and doesn't like putting eight men in the box.

So what do you have when all this comes together?

Points!

I could be wrong, but it's hard to argue with the logic. We'll see.

Come back here for the updates on the inactives. The live blog starts in the comment section below. See you there.,

[Update: The Dolphins inactives are Channing Crowder, Jared Odrick, John Jerry, Jeron Mastrud, Marlon Moore, Robert Rose, Patrick Brown, with Tyler Thigpen the third QB.]

Ricky is the better RB tonight...have a seat Ronnie and watch Ricky get this team back in the game

OMG did they tackle the returner???

NEVER kick it out of bounds G.

nice coverage on the kick. Go D!!!!

Fins1 - that's exactly my point!! He's constantly looking for the homerun and not popping through the hole

voante davis is awesome

cmon d

pats in the grove.... not good

Danny Woodhead? Really? Reallllly???

our d should be well rested

Can somebody tell Wake that the game is 4 qters not 1?

really need a turnover

Here we go!!! Give it up D!!!

FISH SUCK!!!!!!! AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HENNE CAN'T OUT SCORE TB

wow out D looks like crap

where is our run D???

DID THEY PUT THE ST IN FOR OUR D?????????????????

this D just doesn't make big plays. They need a stop to keep their momentum going and they are letting N NEg march right down

What are they averaging 5 yards a carry?

we are getting gashed

This is terrible....this game might over real soon boys

do i hear 27 - 13 coming up...... turn out the ligHts the party is over....... FISH SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

unbelievable. every phase of team is playing like crap

we have no chance if we cant stop the run

wake and ricky only ones balling

Welker, who was the A-Hole to trade him within the division again? Dolphins have been screwed and setup back decades for their idiotic personnel moves!

we have no chance period.... no talent and no coaching

can't stop the run, can't stop the pass, can't stop kick off returns, can't stop punts from being blocked

geez

setback . . . another midget scores for NE!!!!!! love it. sick of this f-ing front office

dont blame defense

since shula left thats been the fishes claim to fame...... bad trade and bad dratfs..... maybe we can get cameron back
FISH SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOSERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

we're getting beat by Danny Woodhead...not Randy Moss or Wes Welker.

ok we running out of chances. must score next possesion

Wow - missed the challenge too. Absolutely, completely unprepared for this game. Did the entire Dolphins staff and players think this was the bye week?

See my earlier post about the little RB... told you he'd get us...

Who wants to talk 2011 draft?

I say ILB, NT, S, RB or TE are needed. Could use a G too. I'm not sold on our safeties either.

How much did they spend on this team?

what has happened to our run defense..wow...woodhead is getting 5 yards

its the freaking pats, you know they can score. 27-14 score lies solely on special teams and henne

need the cycle
2 ints
TD run back
block punt
come on fumble

FISH SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't stop the pass
Can't stop the run
Can't stop the kick returner
Can't stop punts from being blocked
Can't stop throwing interceptions

Can't win :(

now, let's go to the Wildcat and lose in style . . . . fire the OC already - game had passed him by!!!!!!

this is on the coach. didnt have plaers prepared for big monday night game

Forget the Dolphins- Go Canes.It will be like the 80's and 90's when everybody loved the Canes and the Dolphins were nobodies in town. This is a mediocre team

We need a kicker that can do THAT!

man thats a good kicker they have

I agree, I saw we wildcat the rest of the game, end this misery already

hey guys you are being to negative this game is far from being over. i cant beleive that most fans criticize dolphins once we miss a few play and call all that we have done a failure. Go Dolphins!!!! Go Henne!!!!

i doubt this phin team will ever have a pass rush,, now , and into the near future ...

medicore would be a step up

I AM POPPING THE CHAMPAGNE NOW ,GO PATS LET'S FINISH THE BIG TUNA OR THE BIG FISH WHAT EVER ,LOL :)

Missing Crowder, Odrick, and Merling is hurting this D right now

Defense is getting shredded. THROW IN A FING BLITZ WHEN THEY ARE JUST MARCHING DOWN THE FIELD LIKE IT'S PRACTICE!

Terrible special teams and run D.... Look st the sched... At least we can blow another high draft pick in 2011.

i am a big fan of the coach, but the is very unprofessional. you got to have your team ready to play a division rival. i understand losing, but not like this. this team wasnt ready to play

Koa Misi is turning into a bust.

thats crap!!!!!! bleacheat is bobing the refs now

that';s pass interference?????????

Bad Call by the refs, that midget DB got tossed aside

yep...... refs got to pile on know they like the pats bj
