« 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.]

FISH SUCK!!!! ... LETS SEE TWO INT FALSE START AND HOLDING ON THE RG..... AGAINST TOM BRADY.... GEE WHO DO YOU THINK WINS THIS GAME???????

god this story is getting so old. dolphins dominating game but absolutely cabnot get two scores up on a team.

Here you surfer... I've been at this since 1977. Never changes.

I have this concern about the coaching staff...
not having what's needed.

I'm seeing it again tonight.

geeeeze peeps, we r still winning. But please throw to BM...i mean come on...he can out jump most defenders

HEY, GUYS, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT OF A ROOKIE QB STILL WET BEHIND THE EARS :)

whats the score sorry im at work

I have been with them since 1970 and ever since we lost Shula and Marino nothing but pain a suffering and chest pains ..... stick a fork in then this game you can't have 2 int against TB and expect to win..... nore chest pain CRAP!!!!!

that rookie went down the field in 2minutes last week

THE DOLPHINS ARE LOOSING STEAM ,THEY ARE LOOKING TIRED, UH OH !

I THINK THEY NEED TO PUT CHAD PENNINGTON AS QB FOR THE THIRD QUARTER !!

The little RB the Jets cut... Woodhead? Woodcock? Woodley? Will be the death of us tonight... just a gut feel.

lets hope the fish don't get out coached on half time adjustments

i am so frustrated, henning sucks, henne is below average at this point. The Pats asked us to dominate them in the beginning, AND WE DONT!!! When will this change?????????????? I am venting at this point, but it is hard to stay positive all the time!! WOW!! Are we the only team that cen not figure out how to beat a team flat out??? Now they are one drive from taking the lead. AAARRGGGGGGGGGG!!

game over...simply can't have two INTs that lead to points for NE! Dolphins will lose because of this. Gonna go to bed early, depressed!

Henning should be fired tomorrow. Sporano might want to think about benching Henne. He misses open receivers because he is a one-option passer, hence the INTs.

DOLFANS, STOP LIVING IN THE PAST ,WAKE UP IT IS TIME FOR THE JETS TO CONTROL THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE IN THE AFC EAST :)

woodhead. most career yards ever by a college football player, any division

7-6 phins

I hate the Jets...but you are right, they are the best in the East. I wanted to think that Henne was developing better than Sanchez...not happening.

jets? your kidding right? J-E-T-S SUCK SUCK SUCK!!!!!

u guys hating on henne i cant believe it. even peyton makes mistakes, abd he will have a great second half like last year.

Put Pennington in before all is lost!

sanchez is a flash in the pan. ull see.

sanchez sucks... but henne aint all that either... ive said all along... average

Henne Has A Staring Problem

hb_ny ,

WELCOME TO MY JETS CLUB !

sanchez lame very lame

Its So Easy To Be A Cynic When Youre A Fin Fan

i believe in henne and so shiuld every other dolphin fan

those cheerleaders are f-ing hot!

I just have this concern that Miami's coaching staff just isn't on the elite level.

We'll see...

At the end of the day... we are not on par with Pitt, Balt or NYJ... so it's really all moot isn't it?

im routin for him dude... my personal opinion is he is an average qb

just a matter of time

great.... just f-ing great
