Miami Dolphins 2017 top 10 highlights
By Brian Miller
The Dolphins returned home limping after a loss in New England and extending their losing streak to five games. They would beat the Denver Broncos at home to end the losing stretch but faced the Patriots on Monday Night Football two weeks removed from the loss in Foxboro.
To date the Dolphins had performed horribly in prime time games and the Dolphins entered the game as 12 point underdogs. Miami would come out on fire forcing the Patriots to a three and out on the first drive. Miami wold generate six points of offense in the first quarter but shutout the Patriots.
Most impressive however was the fact that the Patriots didn’t convert a third down attempt until the 4th quarter when Miami went into a prevent defensive system. Miami played their only complete game of the season and sent the Patriots home with a 27-20 loss. The seven points far closer than the game ever was.
The Dolphins held Tom Brady to 233 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions while Jay Cutler had his best game as a Miami Dolphin throwing for 263 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions.
