Tom Brady on the difference between this game and the Nov. 26 win over Miami: "We played with the lead last time and that's always important in the NFL — play on your terms. We got behind, turned it over, and had to play on their terms all night."

Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake saw a ton of volume tonight, finishing with 30 touches for 193 total yards in Miami's win over New England. Drake played a complete game, winning matchups as a receiver and using his speed, power and lateral agility to rack up numbers on the ground.

Tom Brady and the Patriots' offense went 0-for-11 on third down in their 27-20 loss to the Dolphins, which is where the loss of tight end Rob Gronkowski showed up most. Credit the Dolphins for an inspired effort as well. The Patriots drop to 10-3, but can still put themselves in prime position for the AFC's top seed with a win at Pittsburgh (11-2) on Sunday. For that to happen, they'll need to play, and coach, better than they did against the Dolphins.

The Dolphins produce their most impressive win of the season, 27-20, over the Patriots. Miami tailback Kenyan Drake was a problem for New England both on the ground and through the care. Drake had a game-high 193 total yards. Miami (6-7) splits the season series with New England and remains alive in the playoff chase in the AFC. The Dolphins have a big road game against the Buffalo Bills (7-6) next week.

The New England Patriots, 11-point favorites tonight in Miami, are 0-for-8 on third down. Amazing

Big drop by Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant who could have had a game-sealing touchdown. He's struggled with drops in the past.

This is the second time in Brandin Cooks' 55-game career that he has been held without a reception through three quarters (also 2016 Week 12).

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said the MRI on CB Ahkello Witherspoon's injured knee showed no significant damage. Shanahan said it's a sprained knee and Witherspoon will be day-to-day this week. Good news for the Niners' secondary this week.
