Wilfork: 'Never a doubt' Pats would win

FOXBORO -- After making one of the key plays that helped the Patriots wipe out a 17-0 halftime deficit and beat the Dolphins, 27-24, Saturday at Gillette, Vince Wilfork said there was never a doubt the Patriots would come back and win the game that clinched a first-round bye. Wilfork recovered a Matt Moore fumble in the third quarter that led to New England's first touchdown, part of a 27-point run that put the Patriots in command. 

"There was never a doubt in our mind, especially my mind, that we were going to pull this game out," Wilfork said "We just had to go out there and make the plays, get off the field and make the plays and get off the field, and put our offense in good situations. Field position was a big thing today. Once we got field position and gave it to the offense, they handled it very well. 

"That's one of those things. You have to just keep rolling. You never know how you're going to win but good...

Gift-wrapped: Pats rally past Fish

FOXBORO -- Stephen Gostkowski hit his second field goal of the day from 42 yards with 8:55 left in the fourth quarter to give the Patriots their first lead while Tom Brady scored on two quarterback sneaks as New England rallied from a 17-0 halftime deficit to beat the Dolphins, 27-24, on Christmas Eve at Gillette Stadium. The win improves the Patriots to 12-3 and clinches a first-round bye in the upcoming AFC playoffs. The Patriots matched a season high with five sacks while Wes Welker passed Randy Moss and set a new single-season record for receiving yards, catching 12 balls for 138 yards, giving him 1,518 yards for the season. 

The Patriots looked re-energized after halftime, taking the opening drive down the field for a 45-yard Gostkowski field goal. Vince Wilfork recovered a Matt Moore fumble at the Dolphins 35. The Patriots capitalized when Brady found Deion Branch in the back of the end zone for a 2-yard TD pass. Following a short punt...

Mankins suffers knee injury

FOXBORO -- Already reeling from the sudden loss of starting left tackle Matt Light before the game to a leg problem, the Patriots were dealt another blow in the first quarter as they lost Logan Mankins to a knee injury. The team announced his return as questionable. 

Mankins was taking Light's spot at left tackle, making his first career start at the position and his first since his college days at Fresno State. 

Mankins appeared to come down awkwardly while making a block on the final play of New England's second drive midway through the first quarter. He limped off the field and immediately had his knee checked out.

Light among 7 inactives with late leg issue

FOXBORO -- After testing out an apparent leg injury, Matt Light was among the seven Patriots scratched for Saturday's Christmas Eve tilt with the Dolphins at Gillette Stadium. Light was on the field about two hours before kickoff, working on drop-back drills, while constantly looking down at his right leg. 

Joining Light as inactive are safety Patrick Chung, linebacker Brandon Spikes, offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer, running back Shane Vereen, defensive lineman Ron Brace and quarterback Ryan Mallett. 

For Chung and Spikes, it marked the seventh consecutive game missed with injury. Both were injured in the Nov. 6 loss to the Giants. The Patriots have won all six games since.
