Football News

It was a big AFC East clash on Thursday Night Football tonight as the previously 6-0 New England Patriots hosted the previously 3-3 Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins had won their last two and were looking like a more threatening unit under interim head coach Dan Campbell

Same old Story

It proved once again that the Patriots divisional dominance is unshakeable as they blew out the Dolphins 36-7 and went 3-0 in divisional match ups this season.

It was a good night to be a Patriots fan as they saw their team run riot against the Dolphins with stars like Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski and Dion Lewis all shine.

The biggest stories however went to two other Patriots players as one proved his worth and another made franchise history.

While it could be argued that Dion Lewis' 112 yards from scrimmage and single touchdown catch made him the highlight player, his quarterback may have beaten him to it.

Tom Brady continued to prove that when he is on a mission to punish teams, there is literally no stopping him.

356 passing yards and four touchdowns for Brady just added another incredible performance to his already incredible season.

Brady has now thrown 16 touchdowns and over 2,000 yards this season with just the one interception as he aims to prove wrong all those who questioned his character in the off-season.

History made

While Brady proved how unstoppable he can be, kicker Stephen Gostkowski grabbed the franchise record of most consecutive field goal tries made.

Gostkowski made his 26th consecutive field goal tonight from 36 yards and passed his predecessor Adam Vinatieri for the record.

It was an incredibly deceptive kick however with a wicked curve that sealed the record.

Gostkowski remarkably equalled the record with a long range 52 yard kick as he continues to prove himself as one of the best kickers in the league.

Who's next?

Gillette Stadium has once again become a fortress and next up for the Patriots is a home game against the 3-4 Washington Redskins.

For Miami however, they stay on the road to their divisional rivals as they travel to the Buffalo Bills who are on their bye week this week following their loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in London last weekend.
