Patriots vs. Dolphins: Final Report Card, Player Grades for New England

New England Patriots 23, Miami Dolphins 16

The New England Patriots did not dominate their divisional opponent on Sunday by any means, but they still came away with a seven-point victory over the Miami Dolphins. With their win Sunday, the New England Patriots improved to 5-0 on the season against divisional opponents, and clinched the AFC East title with a four-game lead and tiebreakers in their favor.

The Patriots’ offense did not come close to matching their league-leading averages, putting up just 321 total yards of offense and 23 points, but a tremendous 16-play, 77-yard power-running drive in the fourth quarter killed enough clock to put the game away.

Defensively, the Patriots only had one takeaway and made few big plays, but had a solid overall performance, giving up just one touchdown and holding their opponent below 300 yards of offense for the first time since Week 2.
