Special Teams Lift Patriots Past Dolphins

By on October 5, 2010 in

The New England Patriots scored 17 points within three minutes courtesy of Brandon Tate’s kickoff return and Patrick Chung’s blocked punt en route to a 41-14 victory over the Miami Dolphins away at Sun Life Stadium. Chung later blocked an attempted field goal to add onto his impressive stat line while setting up Kyle Arrington to take it in from 35 yards out for six. Linebacker Rob Ninkovich came up with 2-of-3 interceptions gift wrapped by Dolphins QB Chad Henne.

Tom Brady spent most of his time celebrating due to the heavy contributions from the defense and special teams. He completed 19 passes for 153 yards and one touchdown to earn his 100th career win as starting quarterback. “I’ve played on a great team for my entire career,” Brady said during his post-game interview. “Same organization that’s committed to winning. I’m privileged to be a quarterback for this team. I hope I’m here forever.” The Pats can look forward to a bye week before they matchup with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, October 17th. New England Patriots tickets are now available!
