Miami Dolphins defeat Patriots, 24-20

Well, the dynasty isn't exactly dead ... But the Dolphins put a significant dent in the New England Patriots armor this afternoon.

Dolphins 24. Patriots 20.

It ended when Michael Thomas, signed last week, intercepted Tom Brady on fourth down with mere seconds to play. The Patriots in typical fashion had driven from their own 20 to inside the Dolphins red zone.

Ryan Tannehill, meanwhile, outdueled Tom Brady. He engineered the drive for the go ahead points. He hit the go-ahead TD. He finished the day 25 of 37 for 312 yards with three TDs and no interception. Tannehill's rating was 120.7.

Yes, this is the Dolphins biggest win under Joe Philbin.

Great Win Dolfans ! .....next @Buffalo.....let's keep the momentum rollin ! .......

Great game and I am so glad we could finish give credit to Ireland for picking up Thomas we usually bash him but this time Thomas was a good pick up and looks like a player.

excellent game by the dolphins. they used to fold in these situations and now they can win in some instances. not there yet though. jimmy wilson is a weak link. that missed tackle at the end of the game was horrible. he didn't even try to make a tackle; just swiped at the ball like a girl as the receiver ran by him for td. i would cut him at the the end of the year based on that play alone. no room on the roster for guys that don't want to make contact. watch the highlights. he literally stops running and swats at the ball when he could have made a tackle.
