Dolphins Overpower Patriots in The Second Half For 33-20 Win

New England Patriots v Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins got off to a great start opening day, topping the rival Patriots 33-20 to get off to a quick 1-0 start.

Knowshon Moreno led the Dolphins ground game, going for 134 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown that sealed the outcome.

Ryan Tannehill threw for two scores as the Fins just beat up the Pats after a close first half. The Dolphins were able to go off for 23 unanswered points in the second half to become the first team since 2003 to beat New England in a season-opener.

For the first time since Week 3 of the 2012 season, the Patriots will end a weekend without at least a share of the AFC East lead.

Tom Brady threw a scoring pass to Rob Gronkowski, and Shane Vereen had a rushing touchdown for New England. Brady finished 29 of 56 passing for 249 yards.

Tannehill completed 18 of 32 passes for 178 yards.

It was 20-10 at the half, New England outgaining the Dolphins 248-138 to that point. And then everything changed, and it went the way of the Dolphins to get the huge win.
