Pats special teams take over in Miami

After a so-so first half from Sun Life Stadium, the Monday nighter has come to life in the second half — and the Patriots have taken control not with their offense or their defense but with their special teams.

To start the third quarter, Brandon Tate took the opening kickoff the distance.  Then, after forcing the Dolphins to punt, defensive back Patrick Chung blocked it, setting up a touchdown run from BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

Following a conventional touchdown from the Pats offense, Chung blocked a field goal attempt.  Kyle Arrington eventually scooped it up, and he returned the ball 35 yards for a touchdown.

Miami special teams coordinator John Bonamego may not have a job come Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Pats linebacker Rob Ninkovich has two interceptions and a sack tonight.

New England leads, 34-14.

    The Pat’s are tied atop the AFC east, and they have the Jets and Dolphins at home in the second half of the schedule. Sorry folks, they are only getting better. See ya in the playoffs!

    dominating performance…yet not by the OFFENSE!?

    Miami’s Special Teams keep losing games for the Fins. This seems like a never ending story. They need to fire ST Coordinator John Bonamego on the spot!!! Dolphins’ ST suck since this regime took over (probably even longer…).
    On a side note, add Rob Ninkovich to an endless list of Dolphins’ rejects who go on to be key contributors in New England…

    Does Brandon Marshall only have to play one out of 4 games to get paid. 4 catches, really?

    Pats just showed the NFL they can in fact win on the road and in unconventional ways…lol.
