FOXBORO, Mass. -- This is a butt-whipping in the making.
And the Dolphins are doing the whipping on the Patriots, 17-0.
Matt moore has thrown two TD passes. Tom Brady has spent much of the afternoon on the ground, avoiding an angry Miami rush, behind a leaky offensive line.
The Patriots are playing with two rookie tackles, and a backup left guard. Matt Light was inactive today and Logan Mankins is out with a knee injury.
Oh, and New England's 32nd ranked pass defense is playing like a 32nd ranked pass defense, complete with two pass interference penalties.
New England's best chance for a score in the first half came and went when Stephen Gostowski missed a 51-yard field goal just before halftime.
