The New England Patriots were just yards away from taking the lead from the Miami Dolphins late in the fourth quarter before their comeback attempt was halted by a Damien Harris fumble.
Despite the 17-16 defeat, the Patriot showed flashes of competence throughout the game, and their rookie quarterback impressed in his opportunities.
Old friend Brian Flores’ team outplayed Bill Belichick’s again, as Tua Tagovailoa remained undefeated against New England. While he made some mistakes, including the interception to set up the potential go-ahead drive, he made plays when it counted and secured the victory.
Let’s hands out to criticism and some praise from this Week 1 loss.
