Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is trying to become the first quarterback to win his first four starts against Bill Belichick’s Patriots.

Tagovailoa got a little help in that endeavor from his defense midway through the second quarter.

The Patriots had second-and-10 from their own 15-yard line when safety Brandon Jones darted in untouched from the left side and strip-sacked quarterback Mac Jones. The ball bounced right up to edge rusher Melvin Ingram, who ran the ball in 2 yards for the game’s first touchdown.

It was the second takeaway of the game for Miami’s defense, which ended New England’s first drive with an interception. The Dolphins went down the field to score a field goal off of the turnover for an early 3-0 lead.

Dolphins right tackle Austin Jackson was shaken up early on in the second quarter. Greg Little came in to replace him at right tackle. The Dolphins announced he’s questionable to return with an ankle injury.

For the Patriots, James Ferentz entered the game at left guard in place of Cole Strange midway through the second quarter.

  1. Even with the Dolphins defense looking out of position pre-snap they are flying around and making plays. That TD pass to Waddle before halftime was a brilliant play call. I thought this was supposed to be a drubbing by the Pats? Rookie coach vs BB? Tyreek is getting open whenever he wants. The Pats offensive line is looking like Miami’s the past 10 years. Keep the the peddle to the metal! Phins Up!
