Stats & Info: Brandon Tate
The New England Patriots came to Miami having lost six of their last 10 games against the Dolphins on the road and five straight road games when their opponent had a winning record at time of the game.
Thanks to a historic effort from the Patriots special teams, they broke those streaks with a dominant 41-14 win over the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football.
Here's a few quick-hitters from tonight's game:
• Patriots are the first team in NFL history to score a touchdown by rushing, passing, interception return, kickoff return and blocked field goal attempt in the same game.
• Patriots win a road game against a team with a winning record for the first time since Week 12 of the 2008 season, which was at Miami.
• Tom Brady becomes the fastest quarterback in the Super Bowl era (since 1966) to reach 100 wins (131 starts).
• Since 2006, New England is 6-1 on Monday Night Football.
• Brandon Tate's 103-yard kickoff return is the second longest in franchise history. It was his second of 2010, becoming just the third player in franchise history with at least two kickoff returns for touchdowns in the same season.
• Rob Ninkovich recorded the first two interceptions of his career and a sack. Ninkovich is first player to get his first two career interceptions in same Monday Night Football game since Denver's Al Wilson in 2000. Ninkovich and Otis Smith (in 2002) are the only Patriots with two interceptions and a sack in the same game.
