Maurice Moton

The Miami Dolphins pulled off a 27-20 upset victory over the New England Patriots at Hard Rock Stadium on Monday night. Quarterback Jay Cutler registered his first career win against the Patriots with a stellar performance. He threw for 263 yards and three touchdowns. New England quarterback Tom Brady sorely missed tight end Rob Gronkowski, as his team was 0-for-11 on third-down conversions. Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard intercepted Brady twice. Now 6-7, Miami kept its AFC wild-card hopes alive. The 10-3 Patriots can clinch the AFC East with a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers or a Buffalo Bills loss or tie in Week 15.

    The Rob Gronkowski Effect

    The league suspended tight end Rob Gronkowski for his late hit on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White. His absence has been significant. Tom Brady doesn't have a reliable option on third down.

    Patriots are 0-9 on third down now. The defense is holding strong, but the offense can't keep up.
