Patriots vs. Dolphins: Full Highlights and Recap

Jesse ReedCorrespondent IOctober 1, 2016

The New England Patriots survived a close call in Week 13 on the road against the Miami Dolphins, winning by a score of 23-16.

The Dolphins defense kept Miami in the game, but Ryan Tannehill and the offense could only manage one touchdown—not enough firepower to defeat Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Tannehill completed just 13-of-29 passes in this game for 186 yards (with no touchdowns or interceptions), and he lost one fumble.

Brady was stymied most of the game, and he finished with just 240 yards, throwing one touchdown and one interception on 40 attempts. 

Stevan Ridley pitched in a hard-earned 71 yards and one touchdown on the ground, and Wes Welker caught 12 passes for 103 yards and a touchdown.

Little-known linebacker Trevor Scott busted out with two sacks for the Patriots—his first sacks of the season.

The Patriots improved to 9-3 on the season and will host the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football in Week 14, while the Dolphins fell to 5-7 and will travel to face the San Francisco 49ers next Sunday.
