After directing the Patriots to a 41-14 victory over the Dolphins Monday night, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady told reporters in Miami that the Pats carried a chip on their shoulders into the game. "Yeah, it's going to be there for a while," Brady said. "We've got a lot of chips."
Brady completed 19-of-24 passes for 153 yards and a touchdown as the Pats not only won a big game on the road, but did most of their damage in the second half. "It's a big win for us," Brady said. "We've been talking about this all season and what we had to win on the road and play good four quarters of football. We did [Monday] and when we play well for four quarters, it's a good outcome."
Brady said the team was determined to have a good second half, and it got off to a fast start when Brandon Tate returned the second-half kickoff 103 yards for a touchdown. "It was awesome," Brady...
In the best special teams performance in team history and one of the best ever in the NFL, the Patriots blocked a punt, returned a blocked field goal for a touchdown, and got a 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown from Brandon Tate to open the second half as they rolled to a 41-14 win over the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium.
Patrick Chung blocked a pair of Dolphin kicks, the second on a 53-yard field goal attempt that was returned 35 yards by Kyle Arrington for a fourth-quarter touchdown. Chung also returned an interception for a touchdown to finish off the scoring. It was the third pick of Chad Henne on the night, with the first two coming by Rob Ninkovich, the first two of his career.
The South Florida crowd watched as the Dolphins led 7-6 at halftime, only to watch Tate return the second-longest kick in team history to open a second half that had the Patriots outscoring the Dolphins, 35-7. ...
Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather suffered a knee injury in the third quarter of Monday night's game against the Dolphins.
The Patriots announced that his return was questionable. Meriweather had a big hit in the first half on Davone Bess on a slip screen but had little other impact in the first half.

According to ESPN.com, five-time Pro Bowl cornerback Ty Law, during a visit on ESPN's Chalk Talk, said that a return to the Patriots represents "a dream I've had for a long time," but the 36-year-old said that hopes for a return are "fading."
“At the end of the day, you can't lose there. You're going back home, a dream I've had for a long time,” Law is quoted as saying. “But that's fading. I've been gone for so long. I was [like] 'OK, that's not going to happen.’”
Law said that he believes he could help a team for 15-20 snaps a game, and that he feels he could join a club mid-season and still be an effective contributor. Even so, he said that he is not actively looking to hook up with a team, suggesting that he is at peace...
