New England Patriots vs Miami Dolphins: How to watch Monday Night Football
The New England Patriots take on the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football. Here is all the information you need to watch the game!
The New England Patriots are rolling. They are riding an NFL-high eight-game winning streak, which is tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers. New England will look to keep that winning streak alive this week against their AFC East rivals, the Miami Dolphins, on Monday Night Football.
This will be the second meeting between the Patriots and Dolphins this season. The teams played in Foxboro two weeks ago. The Patriots rolled, defeating the Dolphins 35-17. That score doesn’t tell the whole story about how dominant the Patriots really were in the game.
New England had nearly double the number of yards Miami did, outgaining them 417-221. The Patriots also had 25 first downs compared to 15 for the Dolphins. Had the Patriots not been sloppy with the ball, turning it over twice, the score would have been even more lopsided.
Tom Brady picked the Dolphins apart, completing 18-of-28 for 227 yards and four touchdowns. He was charged with two turnovers, throwing one interception along with a poor snap that was charged to him as a fumble. Those were the only blemishes for Brady who played a great game.

Rob Gronkowski was the recipient of two touchdowns, but Brady will not have him on the field this time around. Gronkowski was suspended one game for his late hit on Buffalo Bills’ cornerback Tre’Davious White last week.
However, Brady could be getting another weapon back in the fold. Wide receiver Chris Hogan, who has not played since Week 8 against the Los Angeles Chargers, made the trip and could be back in the lineup this week.
Dion Lewis also had a great game. He rushed for 112 yards on 15 carries. He and Rex Burkhead have combined to be a dominant force for the Patriots on the ground in recent weeks as the Patriots run game has taken off.
On the other side of the ball, the Patriots were just as dominant. Matt Moore started for Jay Cutler and was crushed. He completed 23-of-34 passes for only 215 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He was sacked seven times as well.
4.5 of those sacks were recorded by Trey Flowers and Kyle Van Noy. The Patriots will be without both of those players this time around because of injury.
Will the Patriots defense be as dominant without multiple starters? Or will the Dolphins be able to hang around and pick up an upset victory? We will have to watch and see! Here is all the information you need to watch the game tonight between the Patriots and Dolphins!
