New ballgame: Pats-Dolphins tied at 17 going to 4th quarter

FOXBORO, Mass. -- It could have been 24-3 had Clyde Gates not gotten tackled by kicker Stephen Gostowski in the third quarter.

But he was. And he didn't get the TD. And the Patriots made their comeback, fueled in part by a Matt Moore fumble that led to a TD.

The game is tied 17-17 after Miami led 17-0 at halftime.

DEFENSE JUST AS RESPONSIBLE AS MATT MOORE. EVERY TIME THINGS ARE NOT GOING RIGHT ON OFFENSE, THEY INSTANTLY LOOSE THE ABILITY TO GET STOPS.

GO FIGURE.

I guess some of you believe the HC has nothing to do with it. Ah yeah, right, uh huh, ok. Bowles can't make adjustments. Why? Because he is a dumbo that was hired by a dumbo that has since been fired, like Bowles will be in 9 days.

Jelly Bean really, two fumbles and an interception. No, he has played great you're right.

Just post under your real name - Jeff Ireland.

Jelly Bean,

Right. Bowles was supposed to make an adjustment on Moore's arm strength. Good call.

2 turnovers changed the game Jelly bean you idiot

Give Bowles a break, Flipturd. It is just his second game coaching.

Idiots

It's only fair we shut them out in the first half they shut us out in the second.

Been fun, folks.
Going to take a LONG walk with my daughter.
Be safe, everyone

WHEN THE OFFENSE SINKS, SO DOES THE DEFENSE. A FRANCHISE QB ALONE DOESNT FIX THAT.

THERE'S MAYBE NEED FOR WHOLESALE REVAMPING OF THE D AS IT NOW EXISTS TOO.

Armando-what's Ridleys stats? I didn't know he was in the NFL until today-can't stop the QB sneak that everyone-but the Dolphins knew were coming

Seminole, with a name like that I understand you can't read. But Moore never plays defense...neither has our D for the whole second half. Moore's fault?

Matt moore became frantic when leading at the half...decided wait a minute, im not suppose to win against teams like this....bowles then made the adjustment.....

We are what we thought we are....

Typical Dolphins: play solid for 2-3 quarters then falls apart. Tough being a fan of this team.

THE DEFENSE CANT ONLY PLAY GREAT WHEN THE OFFENSE IS PLAYING GREAT. THATS WHY WE'RE ALWAYS A COLLAPSE WAITING TO HAPPEN.

ARMANDO, SAVE YOUR SELF SOME TIME, DONT WRITE A NEW BLOG ON THIS LOSS. IM SURE YOU CAN DIG UP AN OLD BLOG ARTICLE THAT FITS THE BILL.

This ENTIRE organization needs purging, from owner down.

Bowles underthrew a wide open receiver again. Good call, Jelly Bean.

wow we suck....and we don't even get a shot at Luck

Have a good one everybody. A Joyous Christmas to all!

I'm glad we don't have Ryan Mallet-this way NE can beat us for another decade when Brady leaves

4TH QTR BLOG:

"NEW GAME"

LOOKS LIKE THE SAME OLD COLLAPSE TO ME. IT WOULD BE A NEW GAME IF THE DOLPHINS EVER WON ONE OF THESE.

In Bowles audition, he has proven he has the same weakness as Sparanass, he has no clue how to make adjustments.

You can easily see the need for a real and experienced, winning coach.

The Dolphins need a coach that will convince them the season begins in September and ends in January.

The Dolphins need to figure out that a game is four quarters.

WE SHUT THE PATS OUT IN 1ST HALF. THEYRE RETURNING THE FAVOR IN THE 2ND HALF!

Marshall is Not an asset at this rate

Had to post this..daughter yanking my arm...
Who here said end of 2nd quarter Pats couldn't score 30 in a half?

Sheesh, another injury?

Different coach, same dilphins. Please get that qb. The right one this time. do they want to play spoilers for the number 1 seed? No they get embarrased once again.

Garbage time stats now being accumulated.

Repeating nonsense doesn't make it less so.

TOO LITTLE TOO LATE!

Seminole, you should go to the eye doctor. You are suffering from tunnel vision. You can only see one tiny flaw out of many. Maybe if the defense stopped NE in the second half we would not be behind right now?

I guess that is too complicated for you to grasp.

BRADY IS THE BEST......


FIRE
MIKE NOLAN .........

So when down by 10 is when miami decides to spread the field.......talk about trying to lose the game...*lmao****

Bowles needs to learn how to throw with more touch and stop missing tackles on defense.

Dear Ross

When choosing the next HC, avoid ghetto blasters, linguini heads, and, now Seminoles...they are known to be drunks anyway LOL.

LIKE I POSTED EARLIER, ALL WE NEEDED WAS 13PTS TO WIN THIS GAME. 30-27 WINS.

WE GOT A BIG FAT ROTTEN GOOSE'S EGG IN THE 2ND HALF. IS 13PTS IN HALF TO WIN A GAME TOO MUCH TO ASK FROM THIS TEAM?

APPARENTLY IT IS!

Merry Christmas Matt Moore you worthless piece of CRAP.

Thank goodness this season is almost over, I'll have time to grow some hair back.

Bowles doesn't have it. Moore doesn't have it.
Nolan? I'm starting to wonder.

Reggie injured put him on IR with Davis and Long, hell of a season though Reggie, just bring it next season now when it matters

moore is inconsistent, but keep him as a backup.

Nate Jones-former Dolphin makes tackle-TD-Bess-Great throw-jones got beat

CANT SCORE 13PTS TO SEAL THE DEAL AGAINST THE NFL'S WORST DEFENSE YOU GOT BIG PROBLEMS.

Nice touch pass by Bowles!

Let's see what he can do with this onside kick!!

Too little too late but nice throw.

ONSIDE KICK, WHADDA WE HAVE TO LOOSE?

Jelly Bean - Moore gave the Patriots short fields twice - that changed the game. He has been Ok up to now but there is no question that he single handedly blew the second half and thus, the game today.

will say, though moore has terrible ball security, he has much better touch than henne.

MUST go for onside kick.

New England will have problems in the playoffs

BRADY GETS THE BALL BACK HERE AND WE NEVER SEE IT AGAIN. WE HAVENT STOPPED HIM THIS HALF.

When its tough...you gotta ask ..what would Tony Sparano do

stop tom brady?

Why a line drive kick?

..WHAT!!!! Come on..You have to try for the onside kick...

The cheatriots will lose their first game in the playoffs

OUR DEFENSE SEEMS TO LOOSE ITS INTENSITY WHEN THE OFFENSE DOESNT PLAY WELL. THYRE EQUALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE TYPE LOSSES.

Time for Taylor to sack Brady
