Greg Bedard of BostonSportsJournal.com joined Felger & Mazz on Tuesday, as he does every Tuesday during the football season, to discuss the latest with the New England Patriots following their 31-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium. While on, Bedard gave his 3 up and 3 down for the Patriots in the defeat.
Some notes from the game courtesy of ESPN…..
The Patriots offense gained only 218 yards Sunday, the team’s second lowest total of the season.
Mac Jones threw another bad interception. He’s thrown six interceptions in October alone. Jones went 19-of-29 passing Sunday, throwing for 161 yards.
Tua Tagovailoa has never lost a game to Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, 6-0 record. Tua completed 30 of 45 passes Sunday. He leads the league in passing yards with 2,416.
The Miami Dolphins have won 16 of it’s last 18 home games. They are 4-0 at home this season.
JuJu Smith-Schuster recorded his first touchdown of the season late in the game. Despite being active, he played in a limited number of snaps.
The Dolphins possessed the ball for 35:55 in the game. The Patriots held the ball for 24:05.
Jalen Ramsey played well in his first game back since tearing the meniscus in his left knee. He bated Mac Jones on a throw down the sideline, intercepting and returning the ball for 49 yards.
DeVante Parker took a rough shot over the middle of the field from Dolphins safety DeShon Elliott, a helmet-to-helmet hit. He was helped off the field and later ruled out due to a head injury. Parker will likely enter into NFL concussion protocol.
