Dolphins at Patriots - Dolphins Fall 27-24 to the Patriots

The Miami Dolphins lost to the New England Patriots 27-24 today. The Dolphins had a better performance this week than they did against the Patriots in Week 1 this year.

Highlighting the game for the Dolphins was Reggie Bush, who topped the 1,000 yard mark in a season for the first time in his career. Bush's milestone is the first Dolphins running back to eclipse the 1,000 yard total since Ricky Williams two years ago.

Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore had trouble holding on toe ball today, fumbling three times, with Davone Bess adding a fumble of his own. Moore did finish the game 17 for 33, for 294 yards. He found the end zone three times, and was intercepted once.

Brandon Marshall caught 7 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown.

The defense pressured Tom Brady all day, tallying sacks from Jason Taylor, Cameron Wake, Randy Starks, and Yeremiah Bell.

However, Brady was able to turn a 17-0 halftime deficit into a 27-24 victory.

Overall, it was a better performance against the Patriots than in Week 1 - but the Patriots are simply a better team. The Dolphins kept it close, but New England came up big when it counted.
