Things Sunday got no better for the Dolphins, as they watched the best team in the league run all over them on their field as the Pats trounced the Fins 49-28. Things got so bad for Miami that they couldn’t even double cover Pats super wide out Randy Moss, as the hauled in two long TD passes with two Dolphins covering him in the end zone. Tom Brady set a team record with six TD passes, and the laugher was well over in the second quarter as the Pats led 28-7 with 10:44 left in the second quarter and 42-7 at the half.

Brady hit TD passes of 30, 2, 35, 50, 14, and 16 yards. On the day he went 21-for-35 for 354 yards, six TD’s and zero picks. His counterpart, Cleo Lemon, went 24-for-37 for 236 yards with no scores and one interception. The Dolphins were outgained by the Pats 443 to 382, and the New England defense got to Lemon three times for negative 33 yards.

Just a few days after trading wide out Chris Chambers to the Chargers, the unit on Sunday was led by Derek Hagan, who caught four passes for 56 yards. Rookie Ted Ginn Jr. had three catches for 37 yards. Ronnie Brown ran for 76 yards on 17 carries, and Jesse Chatman had 73 yards on 7 carries, with a 30-yard carry in the loss.

Miami made the score look somewhat respectable with three TD’s in the fourth quarter. Patrick Cobbs ran in a one-yard score, Jason Taylor ran back a pick for a score, and Chatman a 7-yard run for the final score. At 0-7, the team now travels to London for their overseas game next Sunday vs the 5-2 New York Giants.
