The Patriots lost a heart-breaking game to the Miami Dolphins 27 – 24. The Patriots came into the game needing a win to secure a first-round bye and a home game in the second round. With the loss, the Patriots will play in the wild card game for the first time in a decade.
Ryan FItzmagic is back
The Patriots were torched by Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins. Fitzpatrick threw for 320 yards, one touchdown, and was 28 for 41 completions. He looked like a true franchise quarterback zipping the ball in tight locations and making great throws. DeVante Parker had a great game with 137 yards and eight receptions.
The Patriots Offense was not moving
Tom Brady only had 221 passing yards, two touchdowns, and a pick-six. Brady had lots of overthrows and was off for most of the game. On his pick, he threw it in between two receivers and made it an easy interception. Is it finally time for Tom Brady to retire from the NFL?
Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead was Alive
Sony Michel had an amazing game rushing for 74 yards and one touchdown. Michel kept the offense alive and kept the crowd pumped up. Rex Burkhead also had a great game rushing for 48 yards. Both of these running backs have done great this season and showed us that Patriots offense can still move the ball.
Patriots Secondary is Insane
Stephon Gilmore is truly in the races to win Defensive Player of the Year. Gilmore led the team in tackles today and made huge plays that kept the game as close. J.C Jackson was the second leading tackler and had a great game today. They both are young and have a great future in the NFL.
