Bill Belichick Refutes Claims Of Patriots Looking Past Miami After 27-20 Loss To Dolphins
Dolphins vs. Patriots Game Score
The Patriots offense was beyond lackluster, as it went 0-for-11 on third down, and Tom Brady threw two interceptions, both to cornerback Xavien Howard.
When asked if he believed his team overlooked the Dolphins, coach Bill Belichick was dismissive.
“No. Give me a break,” he said. “Any questions about the game or not?”
Jay Cutler played perhaps his best game since joining the Dolphins this season. The 34-year-old threw for 263 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Two of his touchdown passes went to Jarvis Landry, the other to Jakeem Grant.
