1) Tom Brady -- Another 300 yard pasing
performance after a slow start. Brady finished with 27 completions in
46 attempts doe 304 yards and 1 passing TD. He also rished
for a pair of touchdowns on QB sneaks at the goal line, both crucial
scores in the second half.
2) Wes Welker – 12 catches for 138 yards shattered
the team record for most yards in a season by a receiver (Randy Moss
2007, 1,493). With 116 receptions, Welker is seven catches away from
breaking his own franchise record 123 catches in a season. He
lead the NFL with 104 catches headed into the season.
3) Patriots second half defense – Held the
Dolphins defense to just 7 points after giving up 17 points in the
first half. The team forced the Dolphins into desperation

catches for 78 yards to break Ben Coates franchise record of 1,174
yards. Gronk has 1,219 with one game remaining.

five straight possessions is a franchise first in 2011. The
team could do nothing correct in the first half and looked listless on
2) Devin McCourty – As many good plays McCourty had
on defense he had an equal number bof bad plays. Giving up
3) Rex Ryan -- The Jets fell to
the New York Giants 29 – 14 to fall one game out of the hunt for a
playoff spot. The Jets, who claimed they were Super Bowl
favorites headed in the season, are in serious danger of missing out on
Offensive line -- with all the injuries the patritos
were in danger of having a loss they couldn't afford. The line couldn't
protect Brady or open holes for most of the game. until the team went
hurry-up, New England had no rhythm.
