Despite a 17-0 halftime lead, the Miami Dolphins lost to the New England Patriots by a score of 24-27 on Saturday afternoon. 

The Dolphins played arguably their best football of the year in the first half.

Brandon Marshall racked up over 100 yards receiving, Reggie Bush was slicing up the New England's defense and Miami's pass rush was overwhelming Tom Brady

However, the Patriots woke up in the second half, scoring 27 unanswered points. 

Even though the Dolphins had nothing at stake, this was easily the most heartbreaking loss of the season. Blowing such a huge lead to a divisional rival in their house will sting for a long time, but there are still many lessons to be learned from Saturday.
