« 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.]

Push them off the line offensive line-blow them off the ball

Relaxe people, brady was just asking the ref if he was screwing his wife too. I think the umpire told him to check TMZ

ahh henne and his frustration time outs.. he has to stop that. Just call a run play buddy

Please keep trying to out-coach yourself. Unfrigging-real.

3rd and 1 lets run the wild cat

Nice sub TO

henne IS WORTH AT LEAST 7 MILLION ,IF NOT FOR THE DONKEY HENNING HE WOULD BE UP THERE .

Miami's usual 1st quarter time out...i expect to see them burn another one with 12 min to go in the 2nd quarter

Time out-Is Randy Shannon coaching instead of Sparano?

ok ready....wildcat!

how we looking dolphins forever

Dolphins are moving the ball well. Time for Wildcat!

Henne had to call a TO or there would have been a penalty....2 men in motion. Heads up Henne!

FIRE HENNING!

Dick stockton sucks. I'm a jimmy fan. Stockton just said pats called time out. Before he said one of these teams is likely to come out of this tied with the Jets for first. Duh.


3rd and 1 lets run the wild cat
