Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots: Live Score, Video and Analysis
Updated score: Dolphins 24, Patriots 27 Final
"Great teams aren't always great, they're only great when they have to be."
I wrote this during the live blog and I feel that it needs repeating. There is a reason why the New England Patriots will probably be the top-seed in the AFC come playoff time.
Despite spotting the Dolphins 17 points and looking more like the 5-9 team in this game, the Patriots roared back in the second half with 27 points before the Dolphins responded with a touchdown near the end.
The defense, always the cause of consternation, created two key turnovers in the second half which totally crushed the Dolphins' spirit.
For the Dolphins, the team can find consolation with the way Matt Moore played. He was 17 of 33 for 294 yards and three touchdown passes. He did badly under throw a ball that led to a Devin McCourty interception.
Reggie Bush ran for 113 yards on 22 carries.
What a great game! And in case you missed Reggie Bush's touchdown leap from the first half, watch it here!
Wow! This game was definitely a tale of two halves. The Dolphins had the game there, but they let it get away.
Love the way the Patriots responded. Sign of a championship team. Even when struggling, the Pats pushed through and got the job done.
Game over. Sure, it's obvious who is getting the ball there, but who is going to stop Welker?
Pats are going aggressive! Love it!
Touchdown Dolphins! Nice pass by Moore; great catch by Bess.
Ugh! McCourty caught looking in the backfield.
Nice play by Fletcher. He's had a monster game today.
Touchdown Pats! Yep, game is over.
Okay. Here comes the Gronkowski touchdown.
Gronkowski is like watching old Mike Ditka footage. The guy can't be brought down!
The Pats' defense is coming alive. Moore looks absolutely baffled. It's amazing how this game has turned around.
Dane Fletcher has been a beast today! Why isn't that intentional grounding? He was still in the pocket.
Ridley has 32 yards rushing today. He's been running hard.
The game is slipping away from the Dolphins.
Updated Score: Patriots 20, Dolphins 17
Ouch! That sack hurts.
Baltimore Ravens 20, Cleveland Browns 14.
Even though he's struggling today, Brady still makes a perfect pass to Welker
Ridley is running like Sam "Bam" Cunningham!
Interception! McCourty was beaten, but it doesn't matter. Moore made a bad pass and McCourty took advantage of it.
Still a good challenge.
Interesting challenge by Belichick. I think it's a good move. If the ruling is reversed, the Dolphins will probably punt.
Give the Pats credit, they could have packed this one in, but they didn't. The Dolphins are showing why they're 5-9.
Updated score: Patriots 17, Dolphins 17 End of the 3rd Quarter

Now isn't the time to bend for the Pats' defense.
